[Correspondence] Steroid withdrawal and bone disease after kidney transplantation

The Harmony trial, reported by Oliver Thomusch and colleagues (Dec 17, p 3006),1 provides new and relevant information about rapid steroid withdrawal within 8 days after kidney transplantation under rabbit antithymocyte globulin (ATG) or basiliximab induction, which showed significant reduction in the incidence of post-transplant diabetes after 12 months of kidney transplantation without increased risk of acute rejection in white patients with low immunological profile.
