Abstract

Objectives: Kidney transplant is the best treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease. Long-term graft survival depends on the protection of renal allograft function. Renal allograft biopsy is the most important method for examining an allograft function. Biopsy provides critical information, enabling diagnosis and grading of pathologic changes, prediction of response to therapy, and long-term graft prognosis.
