Question Title

* 1. Your 25-year old kidney transplant patient developed post-transplant lymphoma* which was brought into remission with R-CHOP**.

During PTLD therapy, his maintenance immunosuppression was kept low (prednisolone 5 mg/day + everolimus (trough levels 3-5 ng/mL)).
After completing treatment, kidney function remained stable without proteinuria, but he developed de novo donor specific antibodies (anti-DQ, MFI 1500).
Kidney biopsy showed no signs of T-cell or antibody-mediated rejection.

*diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, type T-cell/histiocyte rich B cell lymphoma, EBV negative
** rituximab monotherapy followed by  6 pulses R-CHOP ( rituximab + cyclofosfamide + adriamycine + vincristine + prednisolone).
Remission based on clinical examination and PET-CT.

What would you do with the maintenance immunosuppressive therapy?
