Core Tip This study critically evaluated the role of steroid maintenance in kidney transplant recipients (KTR) based on the level of sensitization by utilizing the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network/United Network of Organ Sharing database. In the multivariate model, we found an association between increased risk for death with functioning graft and steroid maintenance in KTRs who had peak-panel reactive antibody < 30% and received perioperative induction therapy followed by calcineurin inhibitor/mycophenolate mofetil maintenance. On the other hand, steroid maintenance was associated with improved death-censored graft survival without adversely impacting patient survival in KTRs with a peak PRA > 60%. No benefits of steroid maintenance were observed in older KTRs regardless of level of sensitization. These finding have clinical relevance and should be further evaluated in randomized clinical trials.
