Purpose. In healthy individuals, glomerular filtration rate decreases by 1 mL/min/y after a peak level of 125.0 mL/min has been reached in adulthood. Any reduction greater than this is a progressive slope (slope more negative than 1 mL/min/y, stable [-1 to +1]), or an improvable slope if it shows more of an increase, that is, greater than +1.0 mL/min/y). The aim of the study was to determine the factors affecting estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) slope during the first 2 years of renal transplant in patients with negative pretransplant panel-reactive antibody.
