it doesn t work, recepients are immune suppressed for life to avoid organ rejection, it is antivirals like tdf or etv to protect from hbv infection

i didnt understand well what you want to say?
i know that recepient should take drugs to avoid reject but why should they take tdf if they are immunised?do you mean that ther immune system always should be suppressed to do not reject ?sorry stef here i dont share your point of view ,if is it the case ,so they take any illness easilly?
just they should take drugs for their life to do not reject the organ and not to make their immune system supressed ,but to stop special anti body wich react against the cells of new organ

transplanted people have no immune system, if their immune system was working the organ would be destroyed

so they take any illness easilly?
yes and most dye within 10years of rejection or infections

just they should take drugs for their life to do not reject the organ and not to make their immune system supressed ,but to stop special anti body wich react against the cells of new organ

there is no such drug or possibilty, the whole immune system is suppressed.
