In the earlier days of renal Homotransplantation, the most important cause of failure was prompt rejection of the homograft. Except for a few tantalizing exceptions, most of the patients treated by this means died during the first few weeks after operation either from return of renal failure or as the result of drug toxicity induced during efforts to prevent repudiation of the homograft. Such tragically unsuccessful cases of the pioneering era constituted the largest portion of the compilation of world experience made in September, 1963, by Murray (1) and the other participants at the National Academy of Sciences transplantation conference
