mDOT for Immunosuppressant Adherence in Adolescent Liver Transplant Recipients

Non-adherence to immunosuppressive medications among organ transplant recipients is associated with a range of short- and long-term complications, and non-adherence is almost 4 times higher in pediatric and adolescent patients compared to adult transplant recipients. Previous studies have reported rates of non-adherence in this population ranging from 50-70%. Medication non-adherence …

Phase N/A

Non-ischemic Preservation of the Donor Heart in Heart Transplantation

This study will investigate if non-ischemic heart preservation (NIHP) with the XVIVO heart preservation devices could improve clinical outcome of patients receiving hearts after use of the technology compared to after use of standard cold ischemic preservation. This will be investigated in a European multicentre randomized controlled clinical trial. For …

Lung Transplant G0 (LTGO): Improving Self-Management of Exercise After Lung Transplantation

This is a two-group randomized controlled trial comparing LTGO to enhanced usual care (EUC). Based on estimations using a published RCT, effect sizes measured by Cohen's d ranged from 0.64 to 1.45 across outcome variables (i.e., 0.64 for physical function; 0.73-0.99 for physical activity; and 1.19 and1.45 for systolic and …

EPI-STORM: Cytokine Storm in Organ Donors

Severe neurological injuries, such as those observed in neurologically deceased donors, trigger a pro-inflammatory state that activates the immune system, increases vascular permeability, and recruits and activates immune cells in solid organs. The rapid and intense increase in circulating pro-inflammatory cytokines (e.g., IL-1, IL-6, TNF-) following neurological death, has been …

Evaluation of the Impact of Tacrolimus-based Immunosuppression on Heidelberg Liver Transplant Cohort (HDTACRO): Study Protocol for an Investigator Initiated Non-interventional Prospective Study

Tacrolimus is considered a narrow therapeutic index drug requiring individual dose titration, to achieve a satisfactory balance between maximizing efficacy and minimizing dose-related toxicity. The pharmacokinetic profile of Tacrolimus is characterized by a high degree of inter- and intraindividual variability. Although it is rapidly absorbed, the bioavailability of Tacrolimus in …

Identifying Genetic Characteristics That Increase Risk of Primary Graft Dysfunction Following Lung Transplantation

PGD is a severe complication that affects up to 25% of lung transplant patients following surgery. Pulmonary edema, which is an abnormal build-up of fluid in the lungs, and hypoxemia, which is low blood oxygen levels, are two common symptoms that individuals with PGD experience. Treatment for this condition is …

APCext : Effect of Temporary Porto-caval Shunt During Liver Transplantation on Function of Liver Graft From Extended Criteria Donor

The success of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in treatment of liver malignancy and endstage liver disease has led to an increase in the gap between patients on waiting-lists and available liver grafts. In order to compensate for this scarcity, use of liver grafts harvested from extended criteria donors (ECD) has …

Phase N/A

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation After Lung Transplantation

Pulmonary transplantation aims to increase patient survival and quality of life in relation to functional aspects. It is observed that the decrease in muscle mass and pulmonary changes are some complications that can be found in the post-transplant patient due to immobility. Thus, NMES rehabilitation is of paramount importance for …

Phase N/A

OCS Lung TOP Registry For Donor Lungs for Transplantation

This is an all-comers registry that will enroll: Consented patients who receive OCS preserved double lung transplants from either standard criteria donors or donors initially deemed unacceptable; and Consented patients who receive a single lung transplant from OCS preserved lung pairs from either standard criteria donors or donors initially deemed …

Testing the Effect of KnowMAP (Knowledge Management for Renal Transplant Recipients). A Randomized Controlled Study

Every year about 250-300 kidney transplantations are performed at Oslo University Hospital in Norway. Considerable improvements have recently emerged within kidney transplantation in relation to survival and quality of life. However, after transplantation, adherence to immunosuppressive drug therapy and other medical advices is crucial for staying healthy, keeping the graft, …
