Objective. In renal transplant recipients, cyclosporine treatment appears to cause more frequent hyperlipidemia than tacrolimus usage. In this study, hyperlipidemic renal transplant recipients who use cyclosporine were investigated for changes in high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-2/3, apolipoprotein (Apo) A1/B, other lipid and biochemical parameters, and body mass index after prospective cyclosporine to tacrolimus switching.
