Individualization of the Immunological Risk Based on Selective Biomarkers in Living-donor Renal Recipients

This is a national multicenter clinical trial, controlled, randomized, stratified, parallel groups, and without masking. This is a prospective intervention study in which two strategies for determining immunosuppressive treatment in kidney transplant patients from a live donor with low immunological risk are compared according to solid phase antibody detection techniques ...


Renal Transplantation in the Elderly - nEverOld Study

Objectives: The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of everolimus (EVL) combined with low dose of Tacrolimus in comparison with Mycophenolate Sodium (MPS) combined with standard dose of Tacrolimus as immunosuppressive therapy for elderly recipients of kidney transplantation. Comparison between the two study arms of: ...


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 ...


Simulect Versus ATG in Sensitized Renal Transplant Patient

Acute rejection after kidney transplantation can lead to graft loss by irreversible acute rejection or to interstitial fibrosis/ tubular atrophy that can induce graft loss. Induction therapy by either T-cell depleting polyclonal antibodies such as Anti-Thymocyte Globulins (ATG) or non-depleting anti-interleukine 2 receptor monoclonal antibodies (anti-CD25 moAb: basiliximab or daclizumab) ...


Standard Versus Prolonged-release Tacrolimus Monotherapy After Alemtuzumab Induction in Kidney Transplantation

1. Purpose of Study: The current immunosuppressive regime used as anti−rejection therapy after kidney transplantation in the West London Renal & Transplant Centre at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust consists of induction therapy with Campath 1−H(Alemtuzumab) and a 1 week course of steroids followed by maintenance mono-therapy with standard−release (twice ...


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 ...


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 ...


Conversion From MPA to Zortress (Everolimus) for GI Toxicity Post-renal Transplantation

Patients who receive renal transplantation at BJH are placed on triple maintenance immunosuppression, which means that patients take 3 types of immunosuppression drugs to suppress their immune system including tacrolimus, mycophenolate (MPA), and prednisone. However, due to the effects of MPA on the gastrointestinal tract, patients often complain of GI ...


Prospective Study Comparing Brand and Generic Immunosuppression on Transplant Outcomes Adherence & Immune Response in Kidney Transplant Recipients

A prospective, randomized, open-label, multicenter, parallel, observational study to assess safety and efficacy of 200 kidney transplant recipients comparing brand tacrolimus to generic tacrolimus over a one year follow up period. All subjects will receive other immunosuppressive medications including induction therapy (thymoglobulin, basiliximab, or no induction) and maintenance including mycophenolate ...


Stress Cardiac MRI in Heart Transplant

Adult heart-transplant patients, excluding those with a GFR less than 30 mL/min/1.73m2, contraindications to MRI and allergies to either regadenoson or gadolinium contrast, will be enrolled over 10 months. Patients will be recruited from UCSD. The investigators will specifically enroll patients with nonspecific allograft dysfunction and patients with normal graft ...
