Time to rethink immunosuppression by mTOR inhibitors?

Marcus D. Säemann, Giuseppe Remuzzi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Several surprising findings indicate that pharmacological blocking of the multifunctional enzyme mTor fosters distinct differentiation programs in different immunocompetent cells. These data might lead to a striking change in our view of the role that mTor inhibition should have in immunosuppressive therapy for allogeneic transplant recipients.
