BACKGROUND Innovation in renal transplant management would benefit from identification of early markers that accurately predict long-term graft survival. METHODS Data from the United States Renal Data System for kidney transplant recipients (1995-2004) were analyzed to develop prediction models for all-cause graft survival based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), the presence or absence of acute rejection within 1 year, and recipient and donor demographic characteristics.
