Abstract
Basiliximab and anti-thymocyte globulin are widely used drugs for induction therapy after pediatric heart transplantation. The aim of this study was to determine whether any differences could be observed between basiliximab and anti-thymocyte globulin, with respect to long-term mortality, in a population of pediatric cardiac transplant recipients.
