Transplant Rejection Clinical Trials

A listing of Transplant Rejection medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (21) clinical trials

The goal of the OPTIMAL study is to gradually reduce anti-rejection medication(s) in liver transplant recipients over a period of time until the medication(s) are stopped. This is called immunosuppression withdrawal. As part of the OPTIMAL study, investigators will also do blood and liver biopsy tests to see whether they ...

Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Intravenous Glassia Treatment in Lung Transplantation

There is clinical rationale to advocate the use of AAT(GLASSIA) therapy during episodes of lung inflammation, including acute and chronic rejection. AAT may provide more specifically targeted prevention of pathogenic inflammation, superior to that of general immunosuppressants, with little risk. AAT is the main inhibitor of Neutrophil elastase(NE) in the ...

Belatacept Compared to Tacrolimus in Deceased Donor Renal Transplant Recipients

New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center (NYPH-CUMC) performs nearly 250 renal transplants annually; of these approximately half are recipients of a variety of deceased donor kidneys, usually with cold ischemia time (CIT) >24 hours leading to an approximate incidence of delayed graft function (DGF) of 50%. The main focus ...

Conversion of CellCept to Myfortic: A Prospective Study in Liver Transplant Recipients

This is a prospective, single center, open-label, safety and tolerability study on the use of Myfortic after liver transplantation. Adult liver transplant patients who are experiencing GI symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort/pain, dyspepsia) attributable to CellCept are eligible to enter the study. CellCept will be discontinued and replaced with ...

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

Thymoglobulin in Calcineurin Inhibitor and Steroid Minimization Protocol

All patients will receive methyl prednisone intravenously pre-operatively, as per institutional practice. Thymoglobulin will be initiated prior to completion of the anastomosis, or if not possible, within 24 hours of transplantation in all patients and a total dose of 6-7.5mg/kg will be given over 3-5 doses. Steroids will be initiated ...

Phase

Outcomes AlloMap Registry: the Long-term Management and Outcomes of Heart Transplant Recipients With AlloMap Testing

The standard of care in adult heart transplant recipients has been to perform periodic endomyocardial biopsies for surveillance for rejection. Because of the risks and discomforts associated with the biopsy procedure, a non-invasive test (AlloMap) based on gene-expression profiling of peripheral blood was developed and introduced in 2005 to identify ...

Phase N/A

Conversion to Everolimus From Calcineurin Inhibitor With Mycophenolic Acid: Impact on Long Term Renal Function in Liver Transplantation.

Given the increasing proportion of patients having renal failure at the time of transplant, with the nephrotoxic effect of calcineurin inhibitor based immunosuppression associated with its long term negative survival impact, this study proposes to examine the renal sparing impact of conversion to everolimus from a calcineurin inhibitor based immunosuppressive ...

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 ...
