Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Metastatic Kidney Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the antitumor effect of allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. - Evaluate the safety and toxicity of a nonmyeloablative, low-intensity, preparative regimen followed by an HLA-matched allogeneic PBSCT in these patients. - Determine engraftment by measuring donor-recipient chimerism in ...

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 ...

Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Metastatic Kidney Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the 18-month survival rate of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma treated with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. - Determine the objective rate of response of patients treated with this regimen. - Determine post-transplant immunological reactions and recuperation of patients treated with this regimen. - Determine the antitumoral ...

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 ...

Global Multicentre Non Interventional Advagraf Conversion Registry in Kidney Transplant Patients

This is a multicenter long-term (up to five years post-conversion), non-interventional registry in kidney transplant patients who have been converted from tacrolimus BD to Advagraf. Centers that are providing medical care for kidney transplant patients who may convert patients from tacrolimus BD to Advagraf will be identified and requested to ...

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. ...

Phase

Reduction or Discontinuation of CNI's With Conversion to Everolimus-Based Immunosuppresion

This study is design to compare two different strategies aiming to lessen the degree of the ongoing process of allograft injury either by removing tacrolimus from the maintenance immunosuppressive protocol or by reducing tacrolimus dose. The primary goal is to assess the change in renal function at 6 and 12 ...

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 ...
