  • Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by Modification of Diet in Renal disease (MDRD) method [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • GFR by iothalamate clearance [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of efficacy failure (based local review of biopsy) [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of efficacy failure (based on central review of biopsy) [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first BCAR as assessed by local review [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of clinically-treated acute rejections [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Use of anti-lymphocyte antibody therapy for treatment of rejection [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of patients experiencing multiple rejection episodes [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of treatment failure [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of BCAR assessed by central review [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first BCAR, as assessed by central review [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of T-cell mediated BCAR assessed by local review [ Time Frame: 6 montha and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of T-cell mediated BCAR assessed by central review [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first T-cell mediated BCAR as assessed by local review [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first T-cell mediated BCAR as assessed by central review [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum grade of T-cell mediated rejection as assessed by local review [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum grade of T-cell mediated rejection as assessed by central review [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
