Found (39) clinical trials

RESTARRT is a clinical research study that is testing whether a combination of several medications can reset the immune system and help it accept a new kidney without the need for life-long immunosuppression. The medications used in RESTARRT are anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG), rituximab, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), tacrolimus and sirolimus. Participants ...

Phase N/A

Kidney and Blood Stem Cell Transplantation That Eliminates Requirement for Immunosuppressive Drugs

The purpose of this study is to determine the proportion of patients that can be withdrawn completely from immunosuppressive drugs while maintaining normal function of HLA-matched living related donor kidney transplants. Fifteen participants will be conditioned with total lymphoid irradiation (TLI) and rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG), and given an infusion ...

Trial of Rituximab Given Pre-Transplant to Sensitised Live Donor Kidney Recipients

This study is designed to investigate in a prospective, randomised fashion whether a single intravenous dose of rituximab (375 mg/m2) given two weeks prior to transplant, in addition to standard therapy, will allow sensitised renal transplant subjects to achieve a negative CDC crossmatch and thereby proceed to live donor transplantation. ...

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

Arterial Stiffness and Calcifications in Incident Renal Transplant Recipients

The purpose of this study is to determine the: - Natural history of calcification posttransplantation - Natural history of BMC following renal transplantation - Reverse correlation between calcification score and aortic calcifications following renal transplantation - Correlation of IMT, BMC, PWV and biochemical variables - Correlation of IMT, BMC, PWV, ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Kidney Function by Multi-modal Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy

Early and specific detection of dysfunction in kidney diseases and differential diagnosis of potential complications in the renal allograft are fundamental to initiate appropriate treatment. In addition, determination of renal function may reveal physiological mechanisms that may prove useful for future therapeutic procedures. Currently, used methods to access renal function ...

Phase N/A

Insulin Secretory Capacity in Insulin-independent Pancreas-Kidney Recipients Compared to Controls

The purpose of this study is to compare functional beta-cell mass using the hyperglycaemic clamp test in insulin-independent pancreas-kidney recipients with that in non-diabetic kidney recipients and normal controls as well as with the partially previously reported data in beta-cell recipients.

Phase N/A

The Effect of Sirolimus on the Pharmacokinetics of Tacrolimus

The controlled clinical trial held in NTUH in 2001 revealed that the bioavailability of tacrolimus when combined with sirolimus is lower than that reported in the literature where tacrolimus was not combined with sirolimus. To determine if the difference was due to the drug interaction between sirolimus and tacrolimus, a ...

Phase

Comparison of the Two Immunosuppressive Regimens Based on Tacrolimus and Cyclosporine Following Kidney Transplantation

Despite several multicenter studies, there is no hard evidence on the superiority of a cyclosporine or tacrolimus based immunosuppressive regimen following kidney transplantation, in a single-center setting. Existing studies concentrated on benefits in safety and efficacy, but seldomly evaluated the cost-effectiveness of one treatment. The study has been designed in ...

Induction of Donor-Specific Tolerance in Renal Allograft Recipients (Living Donor) With TAIZ-Monocytes

reduce of immunsupression or introduce tolerance with so called TAIZ-monocytes in renal transplant patients
