Landing on the Moon at Last! New Pathologic Landscapes In Renal Transplantation with Lymphocyte-depleting Anti-Rejection Protocols. Kim Solez, M.D. The Apollo moon landing of 1969 became the model for adventure and exploration for a generation. Calvin
Calvin R. R. Stiller, Stiller, M.D. M.D. A quarter century later in 1992 Cal Stiller called me about the first MMF biopsies: Kim, Kim, Its like landing on the moon! Like nothing you have ever seen before! Chair Chair Canadian Canadian Medical MedicalDiscoveries

Cal Stiller Directed Canadian Multicenter Trials of Cyclosporine Therapy in Renal Allografts in 1980s - A legendary figure in transplantation In 1978, Dr. Cal Stiller, who was attending a transplant meeting in Rome, tried without success to meet the scientist who had discovered a promising new antirejection drug, to discuss testing it in London. It was raining as Stiller finally found a cab in St. Peter's Square. Nearby, standing in the downpour, was a very wet Swiss scientist, Jean F. Borel, discoverer of cyclosporine. They shared the taxi and when the trip was over, it was decided London would be the site of clinical trials of the new agent that was to save countless lives around the world.

There was nothing unique about the morphologic changes seen under the influence of MMF. His impression otherwise was due to his unfamiliarity with kidney sections embedded in plastic as opposed to the usual paraffin embedding. Wrong at the time in 1992,
but presaging events of the present. However in a more general sense his words presaged an inevitable outcome of the development of new anti-rejection agents: Eventually there will be compounds or strategies used which will profoundly alter the pathologic landscape and the rules for diagnosis of rejection, and such a major morphologic development may usher in a new clinical era of antirejection therapy. And the situation now? So So are are we we there there yet? yet? Have
