Aim--Azathioprine (AZA) is a thiopurine prodrug commonly used in triple-immunosuppressive therapy in renal transplant recipients. However, its use has been complicated by a high incidence of serious adverse drug reactions such as hematotoxicity and hepatotoxicity. The aim for this study is to systematically investigate the relationships between..
