In brief: Renal failure alone

Anyone with permanent renal failure that has the mental and physical capacity to adhere to the medical regimen required to keep the kidney functioning.
There are some excluding factors such as severe cardiovascular disease, prior cancers or infections, other progressive diseases that are not resolved, or psychological limitations. The best candidates would be those without other diseases.
