Delayed graft function (DGF) is commonly considered a risk factor for acute rejection, although this finding has not been uniformly observed across all studies. The link between DGF and acute rejection may have changed over time due to advances in immunosuppression and medical management. Here we conducted a cohort study of 645 patients over 12 years to evaluate the association of DGF and biopsy-proven acute rejection (BPAR) in a modern cohort of kidney transplant recipients. DGF was defined as… CONTINUE READING
