Prognostic value for long-term graft survival of estimated glomerular filtration rate and proteinuria quantified at 3 months after kidney transplantation

Abstract : Background. The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) measured at 1 year is the usual benchmark applied in kidney transplantation (KT). However, acting on earlier eGFR values could help in managing KT during the first post-operative year. We aimed to assess the prognostic value for long-termgraft survival of the early (3 months) quantification of eGFR and proteinuria following KT. Methods. The 3-, 6- and 12-month eGFR using the Modified Diet in Renal Disease equation (eGFRMDRD) was determined and proteinuria was measured in 754 patients who underwent their first KT between 2000 and 2010 (with a mean follow-up of 8.3 years) in our centre. Adjusted associations with graft survival were estimated using a multivariable Cox model. The predictive accuracy was estimated using the C-index and net reclassification index. These same analyses were measured in a multicentre validation cohort of 1936 patients. Results. Both 3-month eGFRMDRD and proteinuria were independent predictors of return to dialysis (all P<0.05) and there was a strong correlation between eGFR at 3 and 12 months (Spearman’s q¼0.76). The predictive accuracy of the 3-month
