The aims of this study were twofold: 1) to describe the post-transfer (defined as from pediatric to adult providers) incidence of predictors (medication nonadherence, acute rejection
, and change in kidney function), as well as outcomes (graft loss) for adolescent and young adult kidney transplant recipients during a three-year post-transfer follow-up period; and 2) to identify variables to monitor these predictors, in the form of a clinical profile, so providers can promote early intervention for these medically at-risk adolescents.
11,12) Bronchoalveolar lavage may be performed at the time of biopsy and is useful for the exclusion of infection, but it currently has no clinical role in the diagnosis of acute rejection

Patients with post transplant erythrocytosis in our study had a higher value of acute rejection
episodes, which is rather unexpected and contrary to most previous studies showing that PTE occurs in those who had rejection free course before developing erythrocytosis.
