Answer

Answer

Kidney transplantation in HIV-positive recipients is associated with excellent 1-year and 3-year recipient and allograft survival rates, intermediate to those observed in the overall US kidney transplant population and in a higher risk subgroup of recipients ≥65 years of age. Registry data also suggest good 5- and 10-year outcomes, with an improvement in survival compared with patients who remain on the wait-list.
