Factors affecting renal allograft survival in african americans?

Academic Article


  • African Americans are more likely to develop end-stage renal disease than other racial groups. Although transplantation is optimal therapy for most end-stage renal disease patients, many potential black recipients do not have ready access to cadaveric kidneys. Following transplantation, blacks are at increased risk of allograft loss as a result of the interaction of multiple immunologic and nonimmunologic factors. © 1996 S. Karger AG, Basel.
