Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess glomerular filtration rate at month 3 post transplantation

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Renal function of patients requiring post transplantation dialysis, experiencing slow graft function (defined as S. Creat level>264 μmol/l at D5) or with immediate graft function.
  • Incidence of patients requiring post transplantation dialysis, experience slow graft function (defined as S. Creat level>264 μmol/l at D5 or with immediate graft function.
  • Incidence of biopsy proven acute rejection, any treated acute rejection, and any treated acute rejection requiring antibody therapy, recurrent acute rejection and the severity of acute rejection episodes within 6 and 12 months
  • Incidence of graft and patient survival within 6 and 12 months
  • Safety and tolerability based on adverse event (AE) reporting.
