Light-Emitting Diode Therapy in Preventing Mucositis in Children Receiving Chemotherapy With or Without Radiation Therapy Before Bone Marrow Transplantation

OBJECTIVES: - Compare the incidence and severity of oral mucositis in children undergoing NASA-developed light-emitting diode (LED) therapy during a pre-transplantation myeloablative conditioning regimen (chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy) and continuing through the post-bone marrow transplantation (BMT) phase versus LED therapy during the post-BMT phase only. OUTLINE: This is a ...

House Calls and Decision Support: Improving Access to Live Donor Transplantation

For most adults in late Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD Stage 4 or 5), kidney transplantation yields superior outcomes compared to long-term dialysis. Unfortunately, the demand for kidney transplantation far exceeds the supply of deceased donor organs. For those patients with healthy and willing living kidney donors, live donor kidney transplantation ...

Prospective Randomized Study for Predicting Human Cytomegalovirus (hCMV) Infection Based on Baseline hCMV Specific T-cell Response in Kidney Transplant

Human cytomegalovirus (hCMV) is the most common opportunistic pathogen in the first months after solid organ transplantation. Traditionally, hCMV infection in renal transplant patients is indirectly associated with an increased risk of acute rejection, chronic graft dysfunction, graft loss and even increased patient mortality. The susceptibility of developing hCMV infection ...

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The purpose of this study is to determine the proportion of patients that can be withdrawn completely from immunosuppressive drugs while maintaining normal function of HLA-matched living related donor kidney transplants.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 ...

Contribution of Diffusion MRI in Renal Graft Transplantation

While renal graft outcomes were really improved for the last decade, long time outcomes remains stable. Indeed, at 10 years after transplantation, the renal graft survival rate reaches 50%. The chronic allograft nephropathy is the main cause of renal graft loss. Other features such as acute allograft rejection, delayed renal ...

Screening Latent Tuberculosis Infection and Observing Preventive Therapy in Kidney Transplantation

Study the prevalence of LTBI in patients who are waiting renal transplant and monitor the incidence of active TB

Phase N/A

Comparing Glycaemic Benefits of Active Versus Passive Lifestyle Intervention in Kidney Allograft Recipients

Post-transplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is a common medical complication after kidney transplantation, related to both transplant-specific and generic risk factors, and is associated with major complications after transplantation. The current PTDM Consensus Report recommends lifestyle modification (e.g. weight loss, dietary modification, structured exercise program) as the first line therapy of ...

IRB 14-009240 Does CEUS Positively Influence Selection of Biopsy Sites When Evaluating Transplant Kidneys?

This is a pilot study to investigate whether contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) may help evaluate segmental differences in renal perfusion better than Doppler Ultrasound and thus help direct the biopsy to the most abnormal part of the renal cortex. This should maximize detection and increase the odds of demonstrating the true ...
