          Growing pains: non-adherence with the immunosuppressive regimen in adolescent transplant recipients.

          One-year graft and patient survival are better in adolescent transplant recipients (age 11-19 years) than in younger (age i.e. 5 year post-transplant) in the adolescent age group are significantly worse than in younger transplant recipients. A behavioral factor that could explain an important part of the poorer clinical outcome in adolescent transplant recipients is non-compliance with medication taking. Adolescents, like all organ transplant recipients irrespective of their age, must adhere to a life-long immunosuppressive regimen in addition to other aspects of their therapeutic regimen. Therefore, adolescent transplant recipients, as all transplant patients, should be regarded as a chronically ill patient population in whom behavioral and psychosocial management is equally important as state-of-the-art medical management. This paper provides an overview of the current knowledge on prevalence, clinical consequences, and risk-factors for non-compliance with the immunosuppressive regimen in adolescent transplant recipients and offers some suggestions for adolescent-tailored interventions to improve medication adherence.
