RESULTS: Among the groups, the eGFR improved among 47% of patients. Demographic characteristics including time on dialysis, human leukocyte antigen matching, cold ischemia times were similar across groups. A greater incidence of disadvantageous characteristics was observed among the deteriorating groups: older donor, higher delayed graft function incidence, as well as more frequent and severe acute rejection episodes. Excellent and comparable 5-year graft survivals were noticed among patients with improved eGFR between 6 and 24 months (97%, 100%, 100%, 94%).
CONCLUSION: Assessment of eGFR was a valuable biomarker for long-term kidney transplant outcomes among patients with inferior renal transplant function. A tendency to improve eGFR between 6 and 24 months posttransplant was advantageous for graft survival, possibly indicating state of immunologic quiescence.
