Pre-DKT, DKT era: see Table 2. Mismatches on HLA loci A, B and DRB1; time to event or censoring; cold ischemia time; graft primary nonfunction (number of surgical failures in parenthesis); Delayed graft function (need for dialysis in the first week post-Tx); biopsy-proven rejection within 18 months after transplant; PNF and graft losses over time. Statistical differences: < 0.01 versus and ; +P < 0.05 versus ; P < 0.05 or less versus all other categories.
