Hypertension in pediatric kidney transplant recipients contributes to long-term graft loss, yet treatment options–including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors–are poorly characterized in this vulnerable population. We conducted a multicenter, open-label pharmacokinetic (PK) study of daily oral lisinopril in 22 children (ages 7-17 years) with stable kidney transplant function. Standard noncompartmental PK analyses were performed at steady state.
