Giuseppe Tisone is Full Professor of Surgery, at the University of Rome-Tor Vergata. The research sectors he has always dealt with, publishing a series of scientific papers and participating in various conferences, also as a speaker, currently mainly concern organ transplants: studies on Tolerance in organ transplants (in this context coordination of studies of national relevance AIFA – Study prospective randomized multicenter to evaluate the clinical benefits of stopping therapy immunosuppressive in liver transplant patients identified as “operationally tolerant” on base of non-invasive tolerance tests and Macro Project Basilicata -CNT- Search for tolerance markers immunological in patients undergoing prospective reduction of immunosuppressive therapy after transplantation of liver or kidney); immunosuppressive therapy in organ transplants with particular attention to new drugs; new techniques of perfusion of the abdominal organs during multi-organ sampling; role of bile acids in liver transplantation; factors capable of influencing the recurrence of hepatitis C after liver transplantation, with particular attention to role of steatosis; role of bile acids in liver transplantation.
