Incidence of acute rejection (AR) post-randomization

Severity of AR post-randomization

Renal Function - Mean change in cGFR (MDRD) from baseline to 12 and 24 months post-randomization (% and absolute)

Renal Function - Slopes of cGFR and 1/serum creatinine respectively from baseline as well as Month 3 to 12 and 24 months post-randomization

Renal Function - Urine protein/creatinine ratio (UPCR) at baseline, 3, 6, 12 and 24 months post-randomization

Hypertension - Mean change in systolic and diastolic blood pressure from baseline to 12 and 24 months post-randomization, and intensity of anti-hypertensive treatment regimens from baseline to 12 and 24 months

Donor Specific Antibodies (DSA) - Proportion of donor specific antibodies (DSA) at 12 and 24 months post-randomization

Occurrence of symptom occurrence and symptom distress measured with the Modified Transplant Symptom Occurrence and Symptom Distress Scale-59R (MTSOSDS-R 59) at baseline, Week 6, and 3, 6, and 12 months post-randomization

Safety and tolerability of a Belatacept-based immunosuppressive regimen-Proportions and incidence rates of all AEs, AEs of special interest, Clinically significant changes in vital signs, Laboratory test abnormalities, Clinically tolerability of the drug


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 75 Years. Gender(s): Both.
