Project title:

Immune Monitoring in Renal Transplantation

Chief Investigator:

Dr Paul Henning

Funding Amount:

$70,000

Recipient:

Women’s and Children’s Hospital

Overview:

Renal transplantation is the optimum treatment for children with kidney failure. Unfortunately transplant requires lifelong immune system suppression, and hence, the risk of life-threatening infections and cancer. Reducing immunosuppression to avoid these outcomes may result in kidney rejection and transplant loss. This research will explore a number of innovative immune system markers permitting fine-tuning of immune suppression treatment, such that the fine balance between over- and under-immunosuppression can be achieved, and survival of children with renal failure can be maximised.
