  • Proportional hazard models: Model 1 adjusted for age, gender, race/ethnicity, and rejection. Model 2 adjusted for all variables in model 1 as well as for DGF (the need for dialysis within the first week of transplantation), donor type (deceased versus living), the most recent PRA before transplantation, HLA match level, and preemptive transplantation. Estimates of potential risk factors were not included when probability values were >0.05 in the models.
