The Study of Long-term Deterioration of Kidney Transplants.
This study is being done to create a kidney transplant database with information from many transplant centers for the purpose of studying ways to help improve transplant outcomes and the care of transplant recipients. This is also being done to learn why kidney transplant recipients have worsening of their kidney function, and whether there are specific findings that could result in future treatments.
