Cimetidine: prophylaxis against upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage after renal transplantation

British Medical Journal
R H JonesM J Weston


The incidence of upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage within four months of renal transplantation was studied in two groups of patients. Thirty patients who received prophylactic cimetidine suffered no episodes of upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage, while six of the 33 patients who did not receive cimetidine suffered haemorrhages and one of them died as a result. The difference between the groups was significant. The results suggest that the prophylactic use of cimetidine in patients receiving renal transplants is worth while.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
