  • The study groups are listed in the first column. For each group, distribution of creatinine at time of biopsy, at first test at 1 mo, and after 2–3 mo is given, along with number of patients in each group with a creatinine measurement at that time point. Finally, a P value is given, showing whether creatinine exhibits a statistically significant change from time of biopsy to follow-up time for two different follow-up times: at 1 mo and at 2–3 mo. BPAR, biopsy–proven acute rejection; ABMR, antibody-mediated rejection; TCMR, T cell–mediated rejection.
