Kaplan-Meier Analysis of Percentage of Participants With Clinically Significant Infection by Visit - Clinically significant infection was defined as the presence of documented infection confirmed by culture, biopsy, genomic, or serologic findings post-randomization and requiring hospitalization or parenteral anti-infective treatment, or otherwise deemed significant by the investigator. The 'Number' and 'Other Confidence Interval Level' columns represent cumulative proportions and 60% confidence intervals (CIs) as estimated from the fitted Kaplan-Meier curves for each treatment at scheduled visits.

Least Squares Means of Measured Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) (Iohexol Serum Clearance in Milliliters Per Minute [mL/Min]) - Glomerular filtration rate (GFR): an index of kidney function. GFR described the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney. GFR was calculated using iohexol serum clearance. For determination of iohexol serum clearance, iohexol was administered as an intravenous (IV) bolus over 5 minutes immediately after morning dosing of Tofacitinib or CsA on day of GFR evaluation. Blood samples for iohexol (3 millilitres [mL] each to provide a minimum of 1 mL serum) were collected into appropriately labeled tubes containing no additives at 120, 180, 240, and 300 minutes after the end of the iohexol IV bolus. A normal GFR is greater than (>) 90 mL/min, although children and older people usually have a lower GFR. Lower values indicated poor kidney function. A GFR less than (<) 15 mL/min indicated kidney failure.

Percentage of Participants With Progression of Chronic Allograft Lesions at Month 36 - Progression of chronic allograft lesions was defined as an increase in the Banff chronicity score (Banff-CS) in biopsy from the implantation (baseline) biopsy in a given participant. Banff-CS was the sum of the Banff scores for the 4 chronic basic lesions (allograft glomerulopathy [cg] + interstitial fibrosis [ci] + tubular atrophy [ct] + vascular intimal thickening [cv]). The Banff-CS ranged from 0-12, higher score indicated greater lesions and Month 36 Banff-CS greater than the implantation biopsy score indicated progression of lesions.

Combined Banff rejection was calculated from categories of antibody-mediated rejection (Category 2) plus borderline changes (Category 3) plus acute rejection (Category 4), as interpreted by the central pathologist.

Least Square Means of Estimated GFR Calculated Using the Nankivell Equation by Visit - GFR: an index of kidney function. GFR described the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney. GFR was measured directly or estimated using established formulas. GFR was calculated using Nankivell formula, where:
Creatinine clearance (mL/min) = 6.7/serum creatinine (millimols per litre [mmol/L]) - serum urea (mmol/dL)/2 + actual body weight (kilograms [kg])/4 - 100/Height (metres [m])^2 + (35 for male or 25 for female).
A normal GFR for adults is > 90 mL/min. Lower values indicate poor kidney function. A GFR <15 is consistent with kidney failure.
Model contained treatment, visit and treatment by visit interaction as fixed effects. An unstructured variance-covariance structure was used.

Least Squares Means of Estimated GFR Calculated Using the Cockcroft-Gault Equation by Visit - GFR: an index of kidney function. GFR described the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney. GFR was measured directly or estimated using established formulas. GFR (mL/min) was calculated using Cockcroft-Gault equation. GFR by Cockcroft-Gault equation= body weight (kg)*(140 minus age in years) divided by (72*serum creatinine [mg/dL]). For females value obtained was multiplied by 0.85. A normal GFR is >90 mL/min, although children and older people usually have a lower GFR. Lower values indicated poor kidney function. A GFR <15 mL/min indicated kidney failure.
Model contained treatment, visit and treatment by visit interaction as fixed effects. An unstructured variance-covariance structure was used.

GFR described the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney. GFR was calculated using MDRD equation. GFR (mL/min/1.73 m^2) by MDRD equation = 170 * (serum creatinine [mg/dL])^(-0.999) * (age in years)^(-0.176) * (0.762 if female) * (1.18 if black) * (blood urea nitrogen concentration [mg/dL])^(-0.170) * (serum albumin concentration [g/dL])^(0.318). A normal GFR is >90 mL/min/1.73 m^2, although children and older people usually have a lower GFR. Lower values indicated poor kidney function. A GFR <15 mL/min/1.73 m^2 indicated kidney failure.

Least Squares Means of Short Form 36 Version 2 (SF-36 V2) Component and Domain Scores at Months 24 and 36 - SF-36 v2 is a self-administered 36-item generic health status measure with 8 general health concepts which are the weighted sums of the questions in their section: Physical Functioning, Role Physical, Bodily Pain, General Health, Vitality, Social Functioning, Role Emotional, and Mental Health. Each scale is transformed into a 0 (minimum) to 100 (maximum) scale on the assumption each question carries equal weight. These concepts were also summarized into 2 summary scores; Physical Component Summary and Mental Component Summary (both a 0-100 scale). The 8 subscales, 2 summary scores and transition Question 2 (TR Scale, measured on a scale of 1 [minimum] to 5 [maximum]) were subjected to analysis. Higher domain, summary scores, and TR scale scores indicate better health status. Model contained treatment, visit and treatment by visit interaction as fixed effects and Baseline (predose in Study A3921030) as a covariate. First-order autoregressive variance-covariance structure was used.

Trough samples were collected 0 to 10 minutes prior to the morning dose. 1 hour postdose samples were required within 10 minutes of the nominal time point.

Summary
Brief summary
This is a study that will follow transplant patients from Study A3921030 to monitor for long
term safety, tolerability and efficacy for 5 additional years, except in Portugal where the
