Renal transplantation is the best option for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), but its half-life is limited to a decade. Clinical and histological markers measurable within the first year of transplantation can be used to predict its outcome. These markers are important for selecting kidneys for transplantation, for identifying the main causes of late allograft loss, for therapeutic decisions and as surrogate markers in therapeutic trials. 'Basal state' markers, such as age… CONTINUE READING
