Pre-emptive Kidney Transplantation Quality of Life

The following outcomes will also be compared between Patients with Pre-emptive Transplantation and Patients with Dialysis before Transplantation : a) changes in quality of life, subjective well-being, perceived anxiety and depressive disorders as well as perceived stress during follow-up taking into account psychological adjustment (response shift) ; b) The coping ...

Phase N/A

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) ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Adrenal Insufficiency in Kidney Transplanted Patients in Glucocorticoid Treatment

Adrenal function is assessed in 30 prednisolon treated kidney transplanted patients and compared with 30 patients in dialysis, who are not treated with glucocorticoids. Adrenal function is evaluated using a 250g Synacthen test, performed fasting, in the morning, 48 h after the last prednisolone dose. Cut-off for normal adrenal function ...

Phase N/A

The Impact of Early Protocol Biopsy in Kidney Transplant

All recipients will receive induction therapy with basiliximab or rATG and triple maintenance immunosuppression with TAC/MMF and corticosteroid. PB at 2 weeks and 1 year after transplantation will be performed using an 18-gauge needle under ultrasound guidance. Patients who will get PB can be the candidate of this study. Methylprednisolone ...

Phase N/A

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

BIOMARGIN European Ambispective Cohort of Adult and Paediatric Renal Transplant Patients

Background: In renal allograft recipients, 10-year graft survival has not much improved over the past decades. There is thus a need for robust, non-invasive methods to predict and diagnose acute and chronic graft lesions, to improve patient treatment, quality of life and long-term graft survival. Also, there is an unmet ...

Phase N/A

Orientation of the Lymphocyte Response to the Occurrence of Atherosclerotic Complications After Kidney Transplantation

The incidence of atherosclerotic complications is increased after kidney transplantation. Traditional risk factors do not fully explain this increased risk. Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease in which all players in the immune response are involved. The impact of these immune responses is not well known in immunocompromised patients, particularly among ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Study of Urinary Markers of Fibrosis in Kidney Transplants

Since March 2004, and as part of routine clinical practice, protocol renal allograft biopsies are routinely performed at implantation and at 3, 12 and 24 months after transplantation, in all patients who receive a kidney transplant at the University Hospitals Leuven, unless there is a medical contra-indication or patient refusal ...

Phase N/A

Feeding Behavior and Taste Sensitivity Before and After Liver or Renal Transplantation

Background and Aims: Protein-energy malnutrition is associated to cirrhosis with a high prevalence and greatly increases the morbidity and mortality of the disease. Malnutrition results of numerous causes including intestinal malabsorption, increased energy resting expenditure, metabolism disturbances, impaired sensory taste and changes in food preferences which might participate to a ...
