Abstract

These are the second guidelines on this subject published by the British Transplantation Society (BTS) and replace the earlier guidelines of  2006. They reflect the growing evidence base from published data on the several hundred carefully selected patients with HIV infection who have already received kidney and pancreas transplants. The aim is to provide a comprehensive summary of all aspects of assessment, selection and management of the HIV-positive transplant candidate. This document should be read in conjunction with existing guidelines regarding the management of non-HIV-infected kidney transplant recipients, but will focus on areas of special relevance to HIV-infected kidney and pancreas transplant recipients.
