October 20, 2017

There has been a consistent decline in squamous cell carcinoma post-transplant among organ transplant recipients in Norway since the 1980s, according to recent findings.

The population-based, nationwide, prospective cohort study included 8,026 patients who underwent a solid organ transplant after late-stage organ failure from 1968 to 2012. Eligible participants had received a kidney, heart, lung or liver transplant, and were subsequently treated with immunosuppressive therapy.
