|Abstract:||Current rescue therapies for acute steroid-resistant rejection, such as OKT3 and high-dose tacrolimus, are not uncommonly associated with side effects that contribute to significant morbidity of the patient. Basiliximab is a chimeric monoclonal antibody that acts as an interleukin-2 receptor antagonist on the surface of activated T lymphocytes. It has until now only been used as immunoprophylaxis in adult liver transplant patients. In this report, we describe the use of Basiliximab as rescue therapy in a case of acute steroid-resistant rejection in an adult living related liver transplant recipient. © 2005 by Elsevier Inc.
