Although the use of expanded-criteria donors (ECDs) alleviates the problem of organ shortage, it significantly increases the incidence of delayed graft function (DGF). DGF is a common complication after kidney transplantation; however, the effect of DGF on graft loss is uncertain based on the published literature. Hence, the aim of this study was to determine the relationship between DGF and allograft survival.

Although delayed graft function (DGF) is a serious complication following kidney transplantation, a reliable and early diagnostic test is lacking to identify the grade of DGF.
The prognosis of kidney transplant recipients (KTR) with vascular calcification (VC) in the aorto-iliac arteries is unclear. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate their sur...
Delayed graft function (DGF) is a form of acute renal failure which results in increased post-transplantation allograft immunogenicity and risk of acute rejection episodes in addition to decreased lon...
Ischaemia-reperfusion injury in kidney transplantation leads to delayed graft function (DGF), which is associated with reduced long term graft function. Remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) improved ea...
Donor-specific antibody (DSA) is a risk factor for antibody-mediated rejection and shortened graft survival. We investigated the role of intrapatient variability in tacrolimus trough levels on graft o...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the reduction in incidence and severity of delayed graft function with kidney allografts from donors >45 years after brain death (DBD).

The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of conversion from tacrolimus to sirolimus early after kidney transplantation in patients with delayed graft function (DG...
Delayed graft function (DGF) is an important phenomenon after kidney transplantation with direct and indirect implication on graft survival. Although its incidence and risk factors have be...
Safety and efficacy study of SANGUINATE on reduction of delayed graft function (DGF) in patients who will be recipients of a donation after brain death (DBD) donor kidney.
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
The clinical entity characterized by anorexia, diarrhea, loss of hair, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, growth retardation, and eventual death brought about by the GRAFT VS HOST REACTION.
An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
The induction of prolonged survival and growth of allografts of either tumors or normal tissues which would ordinarily be rejected. It may be induced passively by introducing graft-specific antibodies from previously immunized donors, which bind to the graft's surface antigens, masking them from recognition by T-cells; or actively by prior immunization of the recipient with graft antigens which evoke specific antibodies and form antigen-antibody complexes which bind to the antigen receptor sites of the T-cells and block their cytotoxic activity.
