BACKGROUND Allograft survival among black recipients is poorer than among whites. Delayed allograft function is associated with a significant reduction in renal allograft survival. The relationship between delayed allograft function and black race is incompletely specified and was the focus of this investigation. METHODS A non-concurrent study of 325(More)
BACKGROUND Mechanisms by which delayed allograft function reduces renal allograft survival are poorly understood. This study evaluated the relationship of delayed allograft function to acute rejection and long-term survival of cadaveric allografts. METHODS 338 recipients of cadaveric allografts were followed until death, resumption of dialysis,(More)
We have previously demonstrated that long-term dietary protein restriction ameliorates proteinuria and limits glomerular structural injury in rats with nephrotoxic serum nephritis. In the present study, we examined the influence of short-term dietary protein restriction on glomerular permselectivity. As compared to nephritic rats maintained on a normal(More)
OBJECTIVE To date only a few randomized controlled studies have compared grafting strategies in patients with multi-vessel coronary disease. This study represents a pilot RCT designed to test the feasibility of a trial comparing conventional CABG performed with a LIMA-LAD plus saphenous vein grafts (LIMA+SVG) and CABG performed with total arterial grafting(More)
