Abstract

There is a continuing need for an immunosuppressive therapy that offers a high benefit-risk profile for renal transplant recipients, supporting long-term patient and graft survival while minimizing cumulative nephrotoxicity and other side effects. Belatacept , the first biological agent developed for primary maintenance immunosuppression, was recently approved for use in Europe. Belatacept combined with corticosteroids and a mycophenolic acid is indicated for prophylaxis of graft rejection in adults receiving renal transplant. Its use is contraindicated in Epstein-Barr virus seronegative or serostatus unknown patients due to increased risk of developing posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder.
