Abstract

Objective. There is a still controversy among transplantation centers regarding acceptance of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-positive donors for renal transplantation. However, some reports show that these donors can be used under a special protocol. In this study, we compared the clinical and biochemical parameters of patients who received kidneys from HBsAg-positive (group 1) versus other living-related kidney donors (group 2).
