Abstract

The Collaborative Transplant Study (CTS) was initiated in 1982, and 275 transplant centers are participating in the study. The data base of the information system currently contains information on more than 80000 kidney transplants. The analysis of malignancies for the period from 1982 through to 1988 included 610 malignancies in 61204 renal transplant recipients (RTR). Patients on the CTS register have a higher occurrence of malignancies of the urinary tract, lymphomas and Kaposi’s sarcoma than the normal population. At the time of the analysis, female RTR had a lower occurrence of breast cancer than the normal female population.
