UNLABELLED Chronic allograft nephropathy is a major cause of progressive renal failure in renal transplant recipients. Its etiology is multifactorial and may include both immunologic and nonimmunologic causes. In this observational cohort study we set out to see if calcineurin inhibitor withdrawal would reduce the likelihood of graft loss. METHODS One hundred and five renal transplant recipients with impaired kidney function (mean serum creatinine 3.0 +/- 0.1 mg/dl) and biopsy-proven chronic… CONTINUE READING
