The number of transplants performed annually increased each year from 2012 to 2016. There were 33,611 solid organ transplants performed in the United States in 2016. In addition to higher rates of transplantation, one-year allograft survival has significantly improved due to advances in clinical management of solid organ transplant patients and improved immunosuppressive therapy. Adequate immunosuppression is key to patient survival. Without effective immunosuppression after transplants, the allograft would face rejection and solid organ transplant recipients would only survive weeks at the most.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide pharmacists with necessary foundational knowledge related to preventing rejection and other complications in solid organ transplantation. After studying the material presented here, you will be able to:
  • Review matching procedures for donor and recipient prior to a transplant
  • Describe types of graft rejection
  • Identify the mechanisms of action and side effects for immunosuppressive medications used post-transplant
  • Recognize long-term complications of immunosuppression therapy
  • List vaccination recommendations for post-transplant patients
