Twenty consecutive patients with kidney graft rejection refractory to chemical immunosuppression were treated with local irradiation to the transplanted renal graft (3x1.5 Gy). Ten patients were complete responders (median follow-up: 47 months). Six patients were partial responders and failed after 1-4 months. Four patients did not respond.
