Avatar m tn Follow-up ranged from 1 to 158 months (median, 74.5 months). Immunosuppression consisted of either cyclosporine-A- or tacrolimus-based quadruple induction therapy including or an interleukin 2-receptor antagonist. Protocol liver biopsies were performed after 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 years and staged according to the Scheuer scoring system. The overall 1-, 5-, and 10-year graft survival figures were 81.8%, 69.11 and 62%, respectively.

Avatar f tn At week 52, combination therapy was discontinued and patients were randomized to RBV alone or placebo for a further 48 weeks (blinded). 75% of patients received tacrolimus and 25% cyclosporine. Growth factor use was permitted. Results: After one year of combined therapy, 63 patients were negative by PCR and randomized between RBV alone or placebo. At 78 weeks (6 months after combined therapy), a sustained virological response (SVR) was obtained in 40% of ITT patients (40/100).

530191 tn?1214166411 I was on that for seven years and finally got a sensitivity to it and it was no longer effective. With autoimmune urticaria vs. chronic idiopathic urticaria (which they said was what i had for eight of the ten years) I couldn't use antihistimines at all with effect, doxepin was the only one! Plaquenil is our next option. However using synthroid (synthetic thyroid) daily has done more for my hives than anything used thus far.

Avatar n tn Every antihistimine and stomach pill (that has a histimine blocker) has been tried. The only relief I have gotten was when I went on Cyclosporine for six moths. This is an antirejection drug. I do not want to stay on this, but have been off of it for five months now, and hives are starting to return. Sometimes they are red splotches on my skin, other times they are thick welts, both itch unreal. My eyes, lips and feet swell also. My eyes and lips swell till I look like someone has beat me...
