To provide safety and effectiveness information for Rapamune during the post-marketing period as required by Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) regulations in order to identify any potential drug related treatment factors in the Korean population, such as:

  1. Unknown adverse reactions, especially serious adverse reactions
  2. To assess the incidence of adverse reactions under the routine drug uses
  3. Factors that may affect the safety of the drug (e.g., proteinuria)
  4. Factors that may affect the effectiveness of the drug

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events: Incidence, severity, and seriousness, outcome and causality of adverse events and discontinuation due to adverse events will be monitored. [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    adverse events occurred in usual practice

  • Clinically significant abnormal finding from laboratory test (if any) [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence rate of biopsy-confirmed acute rejection using Banff 09 diagnostic categories for renal allograft biopsies [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BCAR (biopsy confirmed acute rejection)

  • Graft function: estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) calculated using Nankivell formula [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Subject survival [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Graft survival [ Time Frame: 6 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
