We're sorry, but this trial is no longer enrolling volunteers.



Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects a large proportion of the United States population;in 2008 there were approximately 15.8 million patients with CKD. Kidney transplant is the treatment of choice for patients with ESRD. The introduction of immunosuppressive agents has greatly improved short-term allograft survival, and renal transplant patients are surviving longer. There are a variety of different immunosuppressive regimens that are utilized.This study is a prospective voluntary multi-center registry with a purpose to determine the incidence rate of confirmed PTLD, CNS PTLD and PML in the adult kidney transplant recipients, regardless of EBV serostatus, who receive belatacept following a kidney transplant (de novo) and those who switch to belatacept after other therapies. Subjects who are enrolled to the study will be followed for a minimum of two years.All data will be submitted to the sponsor who will perform the statistical analysis of the data.
