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 ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Thymoglobulin on Human B Cells

This is a research study of healthy subjects who will furnish blood samples for various assays over a period of one year. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) will be isolated from healthy volunteers and CD19+ B cells will be selected using CD19 magnetic micro-beads. B-cell cultures will be performed in ...

Phase N/A

MSCs With or Without Peripheral Blood Stem Cell for Treatment of Poor Graft Function and Delayed Platelet Engraftment

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation(allo-HSCT) is the only cure for many hematologic diseases. However, about 5-27% of patients would suffer from poor graft function (PGF) and more recipients might develop delayed platelet engraftment (DPE) after allo-HSCT. These complications are associated with considerable mortality related to infections or hemorrhagic complications. Treatment ...


Photodynamic Therapy for Prevention of Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer in Organ Transplant Recipients

Patients will receive Levulan Kerastick (aminolevulinic acid) to the face and/or scalp (if both are needed, treated separately on back to back days); incubation: 2.5 hours and blue light photodynamic therapy utilizing the DUSA BLU-U device; illumination: 1000 seconds (16 min, 40 secs); administered quarterly for 3 years. Patients who ...


Transplantation and the Use of Raltegravir in HIV-Infected Patients

Pre-transplant: - Patients on stable antiretroviral regimens who undergo evaluation for transplantation and are subsequently placed on the transplant waiting list will be considered for inclusion in the study. The details of the cART for each patient will remain the sole purview of the patient and the patient's HIV care ...

Phase N/A

Virus Surveillance in Pediatric Solid Organ Transplant Recipients

Viral infections are an important complication of transplantation. Immunosuppressive therapy interferes with T cell immunity resulting in a high incidence of viral infection. Newer agents, such as mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and sirolimus, have been associated with an increased risk of herpes virus infection. The introduction of these more potent immunosuppressive ...

Phase N/A

Cancer Risk in Organ Transplant Recipients and End-Stage Renal Disease

Solid organ transplantation provides life-saving treatment for end-stage organ disease but is associated with substantially elevated cancer risk, largely due to the need to maintain long-term immunosuppression. Despite previous research, important research questions remain concerning the role of immunosuppression and other factors in causing cancer in the setting. The investigators ...

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 ...


Systematic Evaluation of Predictors of Quality of Life in the Long-term After Solid Organ Transplantation

A systematic evaluation of predictors of health related quality of life (HRQoL) leads to multiple level of data analysis. The aim of the herein described observational project is to create a transplant patients registry on psychosocial outcomes and to evaluate longitudinally predictors of HRQoL after different types of solid organ ...
