When a drug is given to suppress the immune response to organ transplants, therapeutic effect is the absence of signs and symptoms indicating rejection of the transplanted tissue. When azathioprine or methotrexate is given for rheumatoid With azathioprine, therapeutic effects usually occur after 6–8 wk. If no response occurs within 12 wk, other treatment measures are indicated. When etanercept is given for rheumatoid arthritis, observe for decreased symptoms and less joint destruction on x-ray reports.

Infections may be caused by almost any microorganism and may affect any part of the body, although respiratory and urinary tract infections may occur more often. With azathioprine, observe for: (1) Bone marrow depression (anemia, leukopenia, thrombo- The incidence of adverse effects is high in renal transplant recipients.

Although intestinal (GI) disorders (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, heartburn, adverse effects involving all body systems were reported, the abdominal distention) number and type were similar for basiliximab, daclizumab, and placebo groups. With cyclosporine, observe for: (1) Nephrotoxicity (increased serum creatinine and blood This is a major adverse effect, and it may produce signs and symp- urea nitrogen [BUN], decreased urine output, edema, hyper- toms that are difficult to distinguish from those caused by renal graft kalemia) rejection. If it occurs, dosage must be reduced and the patient observed for improved renal function. Also, note that graft rejection and drug-induced nephrotoxicity may be present simultaneously. Nephrotoxicity often occurs 2–3 mo after transplantation and results in a stable but decreased level of renal function (BUN of 35–45 mg/dL and serum creatinine of 2. It usually occurs during the first month, when high doses are used, and decreases with dosage reduction. Do not give a potassium- sparing diuretic as part of the antihypertensive regimen because of increased risk of hyperkalemia.
