Özet

Objectives. Recent identification of several mechanisms by which statins decrease recruitment of monocytes and T cells into the arterial wall and inhibit both T-cell and B-cell activation and proliferation in vitro prompted us to study the immunomodulatory effects of statins. In this study, we examined the effect of simvastatin therapy on lymphocyte cross-match positivity in kidney transplantation candidates.
