About This Topic

This issue of the Journal aims to discuss current research and clinical data on the benefits of dietary agents on survival of transplanted organs and tissues. Special attention will be made on the interactions between dietary agents and anti-rejection drugs. Dietary managements of various conditions associated with transplant procedures will also be discussed. Efforts will be made to educate the readers of the importance of the diets in transplant patients in regard to their stage of life cycle. While the main focus of discussion will be on the benefits of dietary agents for prolongation of the life of transplanted organs and tissues, a number of dietary agents and/or diets which may be contraindicated in transplant subjects will be included.
