Abstract

Purpose Calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) can cause long-term impairment of brain function. Possible pathomechanisms include alterations of the cerebral immune system. This study used positron emission tomography (PET) imaging with the translocator protein (TSPO) ligand F-18-GE-180 to evaluate microglial activation in liver-transplanted patients under different regimens of immunosuppression. Methods ...
