INTRODUCTION: after kidney transplantation, a substantial amount of patients still suffer from Mineral Bone Disorder. The role of different immunosuppressive therapies on mineral metabolism in transplanted patients is largely unknown.
METHODS: longitudinal 1-year long study on patients transplanted from June 2013 to May 2016 at Hospital Clínic who were treated either with mycophenolate (MP) (n=186) or an mTOR inhibitor (mTORi) (n=122). These two drugs were always combined with both tacrolimus and prednisone. Patients who died within the first year, lost at the follow-up, with graft failure and those who changed immunosuppression during the first year were discarded from the final analysis (25.7% of original population).
Patients who were doing mTORi experienced a less significant decrease in PTH values 1 year after transplantation (PTH -211.56 ± 270.22 pg/mL for MP vs -136.75 ± 286.06 pg/mL for mTORi, p=0.046). Alkaline phosphatase decreased significantly in the MP group, while it did not substantially change in the mTORi group (-32.13 ± 89.51 U/L for MP vs +1.66 ± 104.66U/L for mTORi, p=0.009). There was a trend towards lower phosphate in the mTORi group (p=0.078), while total calcium was not affected (p=0.373).
CONCLUSIONS: an mTOR inhibitor-based regimen is associated with higher PTH and alkaline phosphatase values 1 year after kidney transplantation when compared to a mycophenolate-based regimen, along with a standard tacrolimus and prednisone immunosuppression.
