Abstract

Liver transplant recipients and their families face the challenge of maintaining graft function while minimizing long-term immune and nonimmune complications related to immunosuppressive medications. Gaps in knowledge remain with respect to long-term outcomes in pediatric liver transplantation and research will require not only translational efforts and clinical trials but also longitudinal and long-term observational studies to permit the recognition of emerging trends as the cohort ages.
