Abstract

We retrospectively evaluated 143 first renal transplant recipients (120 from cadavers and 23 from living donors) receiving CsA monotherapy. The effects of both basal and time-dependent variables on 11-year graft survival were evaluated by Cox's analysis. Shifted patients were compared to the whole transplant population by means of 'landmark method' and Simon and Makuch's graphical representation. Graft half-life was calculated according to Cho and Terasaki. The mean follow-up was 85.8 months. Thirty-four percent of the patients remained on the original CsA monotherapy, while in the remaining 64% steroids had to be added. Cumulative patient and graft survival at 11 years were 0.89 and 0.62. Cumulative graft half-life was 19.98 years. By multivariate analysis, basal variables which correlated with a worse 11-year graft survival were: >45 months spent on dialysis (RR 3.17; p=0.001), no blood transfusion prior to transplantation (RR 2.58; p=0.008), CsA administration in a double daily dose (RR 2.13; p=0.018) and a transplant from a cadaver donor (RR 4. 72; p=0.032). In addition, Cox's analysis of time-dependent variables showed that delayed graft function recovery, (RR 2.43; p=0.007) and the need of adding steroids and/or azathioprine (RR 3.68; p
