Abstract While appreciating the interest of Villar's group in our paper,1 we dispute some of their comments. Their study—an incident cohort of 549 patients commencing RRT at 3 French renal units—showed an association between being elderly or diabetic and having a lower rate of placement on a transplantation waiting list.2 Finding no significant association between LR and access to a waiting list, they question the validity of our finding that late referred patients had both a lower rate of placement on a waiting list and a lower transplantation rate.
