Brief Summary:
Assess the impact of eplerenone (initiated within 2 hours prior to patient departure to the operating room and administered for 4 days during the post-operative period) on graft function evaluated by the measurement of glomerular filtration rate at 3 months - variable strongly associated with long-term graft survival.

Drug Information available for: Eplerenone

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Eplerenone group
Eplerenone administration within 2 hours prior to patient departure to the operating room and for 4 days after kidney transplantation.
Drug: Eplerenone
Double-blinded Eplerenone administered for 4 days at 25mg every 12 hours

Placebo Comparator: Placebo group
Placebo administration within 2 hours prior to patient departure to the operatingroom and for 4 days after kidney transplantation
Drug: Placebo
Double-blinded Placebo administered for 4 days at 25mg every 12 hours

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Iohexol clearance [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Graft function at 3 months evaluated by GFR using iohexol clearance

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of dialysis dependency [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  2. Proportion of patients presenting a delayed graft function [ Time Frame: 7 days post transplantation ]
    The proportion of patients with a delayed graft function defined by the need for one or more dialysis sessions during the 7 days following transplantation

  3. 24-hour proteinuria [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  4. Occurrence of hyperkalemia > 6 mmol/l [ Time Frame: 7 days post transplant ]
  5. Length of initial hospital stay [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    between transplantation and discharge

  6. Proportion of patients alive [ Time Frame: 3 months 1 year, 3 years, 10 years ]
    vital status collected through the national database of organ recipients

  7. serum creatinine [ Time Frame: 3 months 1 year, 3 years, 10 years ]
    using the enzymatic method

  8. glomerular filtration rate [ Time Frame: 3 months 1 year, 3 years, 10 years ]
    estimation using the CKD-EPI formula (in mL/min/1.73m2)

  9. Proportion of patients with immediate renal recovery, [ Time Frame: 7 days post transplant ]
    The proportion of patients with an immediate renal recovery is defined by a serum creatinine lower than 30 mg/L at 7 days post-transplant

  10. Iohexol clearance < 30 mL/min/1,73m² [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  11. 24-hour microalbuminuria [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  12. Proportion of patients with a slow renal recovery [ Time Frame: 7 days post transplant ]
    The proportion of patients with slow renal recovery is defined by serum creatinine above 30 mg/L at 7 days post-transplant without the need for dialysis

  13. Proportion of patients with biopsy-proven acute rejection [ Time Frame: 3 months post transplant ]
    Proportion of patients with biopsy-proven acute rejection in the first three month after transplantation
