BACKGROUND IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is a frequent cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and recurrent disease causes deterioration and graft loss in transplant recipients. No definitive management is known to reduce the risk or severity of recurrent IgAN, and the evidence to support the use of renin-angiotensin system blockade in such patients is limited.(More)
Twenty-three patients with end-stage renal failure due to diabetic nephropathy received renal replacement treatment. All patients had insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Nineteen transplants were performed in seventeen patients. Two-year graft survival for all transplants was 74% with a two-year patient survival post-transplantation of 81%. Overall(More)
