Association of race and ethnicity with live donor kidney transplantation in the United States from 1995 to 2014
Have racial/ethnic disparities in the receipt of live donor kidney transplantation (LDKT) narrowed over the last 2 decades in the United States? In this study of 453 162 adult first-time kidney transplantation candidates, the cumulative incidence of LDKT receipt at 2 years after appearing on the waiting list increased from 7.0 percent in 1995 to 11.4 percent in 2014 among white patients, decreased from 3.4 percent to 2.9 percent among black patients, decreased from 6.8 percent to 5.9 percent among Hispanic patients, and increased from 5.1 percent to 5.6 percent among Asian patients, which represent a significant increase in racial/ethnic disparities over time.
