The association of serum uric acid (UA) with kidney transplant outcomes is uncertain. We examined the predictive value of UA during the first year posttransplant as a time-varying factor for graft survival after adjustment for time-dependent and independent confounding factors. Four hundred and eighty-eight renal allograft recipients transplanted from January 2004 to June 2006 and followed for 41.1 ± 17.7 months were included. Data on UA, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), tacrolimus… CONTINUE READING
