The article presents the study conducted by researchers at the Centre Hospitalier de L'Université de Montréal in Montreal regarding the cancers found after kidney transplants could have been detected during pre-transplant. It states that neoplasis were detected after a year of surgery. It also mentions that patients that were diagnosed with cancer after transplant were given reduced immuno-suppression regimen.
