Patient characteristics (n = 77)

CharacteristicMean ± SDRange
aFollow-up after transplantation = time lapse posttransplantation.
bCreatinine clearance calculated by the formula of Cockcroft (37): for men: creatinine clearance = [(140 - age (yr)) × weight (kg)]/[0.81 × serum creatinine (μmol/L)]; for women: creatinine clearance = [(140 - age (yr)) × weight (kg)]/[0.85 × serum creatinine (μmol/L)].
