Abstract
8.1. Background and aim of the research program Non-adherence to the immunosuppressive therapy is an important issue in kidney transplant patients. About 20% of the kidney transplant patients are non-adherent to the immunosuppressive regimen. Non-adherence contributes to 20% of late acute rejection episodes and 16% of the graft losses, and results in a decreased number of quality adjusted life years. A strategy to increase long-term successful outcome after transplantation is to identify patients at risk for non-adherence and to target them for preventive and adherence enhancing interventions. Comprehensive research on risk factors of non-adherence addressing so...
