Abstract

Eight hundred and sixty kidney transplants were performed at the University of Pittsburgh over a 3.75-year period between January 1, 1986 and October 19, 1989. Recipient selection was by means of a computerized point system designed to allocate organs equitably. Ninety-three percent 1-year patient survival and 74% 1-year graft survival were obtained in the overall group; 80% 1-year graft survival was obtained in patients receiving immunosuppression with CsA, azathioprine, and prednisone. These data serve as a measure of what can be achieved with an equitably based allocation system and can serve as a basis of comparison with other allocation protocols or new immunosuppressive regimens.
