Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Based Centralized Clinical Trial Monitoring System for Drug Adherence

This study has a multi-center, open-label, prospective, and randomized clinical trial design. One hundred KTRs who fill out the informed consent form are registered and randomized 1:1 into the ICT-based centralized clinical trial monitoring group (n=50) or the ambulatory follow-up group (n=50). The planned follow-up duration is 6 months. The ...

Study of the Impact of VEGF Polymorphism on the Development of Renal Carcinoma in Renal Transplant Patients

Renal transplant patients have on average 3-5 times more risk of developing cancer than the general population. This rate can be increased up to 10 to 15 times in some type of cancer like kidney cancer. Among the identified risk factors, immunosuppressants and, in particular, calcineurin inhibitors (ciclosporin and tacrolimus) ...

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 ...

Increasing Equity in Transplant Evaluation and Living Donor Kidney Transplantation

SPECIFIC AIMS Kidney transplantation (KT) is the optimal treatment for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). It reduces mortality, improves quality of life, and is less costly than dialysis. Further, living donor KT (LDKT) is better than deceased donor KT (DDKT) because: (a) patients who can identify a living donor will get ...

Metabolite Biomarkers Related to Acute Rejection in Kidney Transplantation

The development of acute rejection can only be considered in cases with increasing serum creatinine in patients with kidney transplantation. However, the serum creatinine itself is not specific but also accurate for detection of acute rejection. So The specific biomarker is required for acute rejection of kidney transplant. In this ...

Evaluation of CAF22 After Renal Transplantation

Background Kidney transplantation (KT) is the most appropriate therapy of end stage renal disease (ESRD). While the number of kidney donors remained stable during the last decade the number of patients waiting for a kidney transplantation are rapidly increasing resulting in utilization of an increasing numbers of marginal renal transplants. ...

Phase N/A

Influence of Thymoglobuline on Phenotypic and Functional Profiles of B Lymphocytes in Renal Transplant Recipients

The investigators expect to better characterise B cell subpopulation and functional properties early after graft, to analyse effect of induction therapy (thymoglobulin versus basiliximab) on B cells, and to compare this B cell profiles with those obtained in our previous study in patients with chronic Antibody Mediated Rejection (cAMR)

Phase N/A

Fibrinogen as a Surrogate for Global Haemostasis in Plasma Exchange

Plasma exchange is a frequently used therapy in many antibody-mediated disorders, such as humoral rejection after kidney transplantation. Treatment frequency is adjusted to daily measured fibrinogen blood levels to prevent bleeding complications. However, data about the correlation of fibrinogen blood levels and function of the coagulation system during plasma exchange ...

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 ...

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 ...
