  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to help researchers find out more about a condition called "Chronic Allograft Nephropathy" (CAN). CAN is a complication that sometimes occurs after kidney transplantation and affects the function of the transplanted kidney. It is hoped that by studying blood, urine, and tissue samples of kidney transplant patients, new ways of diagnosing and treating CAN may be found.
