Reactions 1704, p262 - 2 Jun 2018 Various toxicities: 10 case reports In a single-center, retrospective study of an 11 patients, 10 patients (4 women and 6 men) aged 37 66 years were described, who developed thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), increased serum creatinine level, acute kidney injury (AKI) or neutropenia during treatment with ciclosporin, everolimus, prednisone or tacrolimus [routes, dosages and time to reactions onsets not stated; not all outcomes stated]. The patients underwent bilateral sequential lung transplantation (8 patients) or single lung transplantation (2 patients) for interstitial lung disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, graft-versus-host disease or idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
