Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Nankivell Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Nankivell GFR: patients with baseline GFR of 20.0 to 40.0 mL/min and patients with baseline GFR of greater than 40.0 mL/min. GFR is an index of kidney function. A higher value means better kidney function.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • First Occurrence of Biopsy-confirmed Acute Rejection, Graft Loss, or Death. [ Time Frame: 52 and 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Number of patients who experienced for the first time either biopsy-confirmed acute rejection, graft loss, or death by weeks 52 and 104. Assessed by individual endpoint and as composite endpoint (all combined).
