Chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) in protocol biopsies is associated with graft loss while the association between subclinical rejection (SCR) and outcome has yielded contradictory results. We analyze the predictive value of SCR and/or CAN in protocol biopsies on death-censored graft survival. Since 1988, a protocol biopsy was done during the first 6 months in stable grafts with serum creatinine <300 micromol/L and proteinuria <1 g/day. Biopsies were evaluated according to Banff criteria… CONTINUE READING
