Phase N/A

Transplantation and the Use of Raltegravir in HIV-Infected Patients

Pre-transplant: - Patients on stable antiretroviral regimens who undergo evaluation for transplantation and are subsequently placed on the transplant waiting list will be considered for inclusion in the study. The details of the cART for each patient will remain the sole purview of the patient and the patient's HIV care ...

Phase N/A

Virus Surveillance in Pediatric Solid Organ Transplant Recipients

Viral infections are an important complication of transplantation. Immunosuppressive therapy interferes with T cell immunity resulting in a high incidence of viral infection. Newer agents, such as mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and sirolimus, have been associated with an increased risk of herpes virus infection. The introduction of these more potent immunosuppressive ...

Phase N/A

Cancer Risk in Organ Transplant Recipients and End-Stage Renal Disease

Solid organ transplantation provides life-saving treatment for end-stage organ disease but is associated with substantially elevated cancer risk, largely due to the need to maintain long-term immunosuppression. Despite previous research, important research questions remain concerning the role of immunosuppression and other factors in causing cancer in the setting. The investigators ...

Phase N/A

Trial of Regulatory T-cells Plus Low-Dose Interleukin-2 for Steroid-Refractory Chronic Graft-versus-Host-Disease

After the screening procedures confirm that you are eligible to participate in the research study: If you take part in this research study, you (and your donor) will have the following tests and procedures: Donor Lymphocytes Collection: Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell involved with the immune system. ...

Phase

Emergence of Gram-negative Resistance in Blood Culture Isolates of Solid-organ Transplant Recipients

We need to collect details on the demographics (age, sex etc), underlying conditions, transplant types and immunosuppression, in-hospital antibiotic management and clinical outcomes so that the effect of antibiotic resistance on patient outcome can be measured. We also need to collect microbiology and pathology data to determine the antibiotic susceptibility ...

Phase N/A

Fibrosis in Renal Allografts

Calcineurin inhibitors have significantly improved the one-year graft survival of renal allografts. However, chronic nephrotoxicity caused by calcineurin inhibitors contributes to the long-term decline in renal function in kidney transplant recipients. Approximately ninety percent of the protocol biopsies of renal allografts, performed at 18 months post transplantation, show histological lesions ...

Phase

Gastrointestinal Tolerability of MMF vs EC-MPS in Maintenance Transplant Patients Treated With Calcineurin Inhibitors

The use of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) in combination with a calcineurin inhibitor (CNI: tacrolimus or cyclosporine) has been shown to improve graft survival in renal, cardiac and liver transplantation patients. However, its use has been associated with significant side effects, including gastrointestinal complications, causing dose reductions, interruption or termination of ...

Phase

Systematic Evaluation of Predictors of Quality of Life in the Long-term After Solid Organ Transplantation

A systematic evaluation of predictors of health related quality of life (HRQoL) leads to multiple level of data analysis. The aim of the herein described observational project is to create a transplant patients registry on psychosocial outcomes and to evaluate longitudinally predictors of HRQoL after different types of solid organ ...

Phase N/A

Quantitative Detection of Circulating Donor-Specific DNA in Organ Transplant Recipients (DTRT-Multi-Center Study)

Early detection of rejection is a major focus of organ transplant care. The use of aggressive immunosuppressive therapy has been shown to alter the prognosis of heart transplant patients who have acute rejection1. There are many modalities utilized in the routine surveillance of heart transplant patients, each with limitations. Screening ...
