Each 1-mg/dL increase in serum phosphorus among kidney transplant recipients is associated with 36% and 21% increased risk in graft failure and death, respectively.
Biopsy-guided allocation of kidneys from octogenarian donors permits further expansion of the donor-organ pool.
There was a correlation for later acceptance in the match-run with delayed graft function, but not with all-cause graft failure.
IdeS reduced or eliminated donor-specific antibodies and permitted HLA-incompatible transplantation.
Risk factors include older age, white race, and receiving a kidney from a living donor.
Increased risk of allograft loss, death for HIV-positive patients receiving protease inhibitor ART.
Most lower-quality kidneys also remained viable for nearly as long as the best kidneys, with 73.2% still working 5 years after transplant.
The researchers observed a narrowing of disparities in the average monthly transplantation rates with implementation of the new system.
Up to half of transplant patients might experience tertiary hyperparathyroidism.
Overall, recipients of diabetic donor kidneys had a 9% lower chance of dying compared with remaining on the waitlist.
During the observation period, the researchers found that 77.5%, 69.8%, and 91.4% of SOTRs were not up-to-date for colorectal, cervical, and breast cancer screening tests, respectively.
Early data from the study revealed this treatment effectively cleared hepatitis C from all of the patients.
NODAT occurred more frequently in the upper PCSK9 tertile vs the lowest two PCSK9 tertiles.
