33305112 During the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, several physicians have questioned pursuing belatacept in kidney-transplant patients in order to reduce the risk of nosocomial transmission during the monthly infusion. […] The effect of the conversion from belatacept to another immunosuppressive regimen is underreported. […] The aim of the present retrospective study was to assess the effect on kidney function and the clinical outcome of the conversion from belatacept to another regimen. […] We have identified 44 maintenance kidney transplantation patients from five French kidney transplantation centers who were converted from belatacept to another regimen either because of a complication (n = 28) or another reason (patients’ request or belatacept shortage, n = 13). […] The follow-up after the conversion from belatacept was 27.5 ± 25.3 months.
