Objectives: Cardiovascular disease is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney failure, before and after a kidney transplant. Oxidation of lipoproteins that contain apolipoprotein B may contribute to the initiation of atherosclerosis. Paraoxonase may prevent cardiovascular disease. We compared the effects of different calcineurin inhibitors on risk factors for cardiovascular disease in kidney transplant recipients.
