Figure 1: Serum creatinine to day 30 after transplant in kidney transplant recipients randomized to start rabbit antithymocyte globulin (rATG) intraoperatively (n=27) or postoperatively (approximately 6 hours after reperfusion, n=31) [41]. The total dose of rATG was 3–6 mg/kg in both groups. Maintenance immunosuppression comprised calcineurin inhibitor therapy (started based on renal function), mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), and steroids. DGF, delayed graft function.
