Background: Klotho, a co-receptor for FGF23, is predominantly expressed in kidney and reported to have anti-oxidant and anti-fibrotic properties. Soluble-Klotho (sKl), the cleaved circulating protein, declines dramatically with kidney disease and is inversely associated with mortality. Aim: To evaluate change in sKl over 12 months following kidney transplantation. Methods: Incident kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) were recruited with blood sampled at 4 time-points; pre-transplantation (baseline), 1-week, 12-weeks and 52-weeks post transplantation. Samples were assayed for basic biochemistry and sKl (IBL, Japan). Within-subject comparisons were evaluated using repeat-measure ANOVA/Friedman's test. Results: Samples from 29 KTRs were available for final analysis. Median KTR age was 49 (35-55) years. Seventeen (59%) were male, 26(90%) were living kidney allografts and 10 (34%) were pre-emptive. Table 1 summarises the change across the relevant measured parameters. Compared with baseline, sKl exhibited an increase at 52w following initial decline at 1w (p<0.005 and p<0.01 respectively). Conclusions: This prospective study demonstrated modest sKl increase post kidney transplantation despite excellent graft function achieved, suggesting factors beyond renal capacity influencing circulating sKl. Longer-term evaluation and investigation specifically addressing effects of immunosuppression on sKl are required.
