Background. Dyslipidemia is an important complication in renal transplant patients. Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) mediates the exchange of cholesteryl ester between high density lipoproteins and low density lipoproteins. The aim of this study was to investigate CETP Taq1B gene polymorphism and lipid abnormalities in renal transplant patients.
