Abstract

Early kidney transplant results in children lagged behind corresponding results in adults. Multiple advances over the past three decades have eliminated that gap. Most children now have equal or superior long-term allograft and patient survival compared with adult recipients. However, black children in the United States continue to have allograft survival results inferior to those of non-black children, even after extensive adjustments for socioeconomic status and access to transplantation.
