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 …

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 …

MRI Technical Development and Applications in Kidney Disease

Specific Aims The overall objective is to develop and validate MRI methods for the evaluation and monitoring of renal status and associated cerebrovascular effects of renal dysfunction and treatment. The proposed project include two phases: 1) MRI technical development and validation with reproducibility studies; 2) clinical pilot studies with two …

Precision Risk Stratification in Kidney Transplant Patients - EU-TRAIN

Allograft rejection is still a major threat to allografts with thousands of allografts failing every year worldwide due to organ rejection, with immediate consequences for the patients in terms of mortality and morbidity. With a prevalence around 20% in the first-year post transplant, rejection also carries high economic impact representing …

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. Staff at …

Non-Invasive Rapid Assessment of Patients With Liver Transplants Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging With LiverMultiScan

Long-term survival after solid organ transplantation has increased during the last decade due to improvements in surgical technique, peri-operative care, and more efficient immunosuppression (IS) (1). However, transplant recipients still exhibit higher morbidity and mortality than the general population. One of the main causes are co-morbidities which are negatively influenced …

Phase N/A

Observation Study for Prediction of Allograft Survival and Impact of Imaging in Kidney Transplant Recipients.

The detection of acute rejection in kidney transplant recipients, depends critically on assessments of serum creatinine, an insensitive measure of renal injury and the diagnosis relies on renal transplant needle biopsy which is an invasive procedure associated with a significant risk of bleeding and graft loss and is limited by …

Phase N/A

Urinary Tract Infections in Kidney Transplant Recipients

The risk of UTI after a kidney transplantation is higher than in the general population. MDR bacteria, such as extended spectrum betalactamase (ESBL)-producing enterobacteriaceae or MDR Pseumomoas aeruginosa are emerging threats due to antibiotic selective pressure. Epidemiological data are mostly data from hospital laboratories that do not show a complete …
