SOCRATES: Steroid or Cyclosporine Removal After Transplantation Using Everolimus
The aim of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of corticosteroid discontinuation versus cyclosporine micro emulsion discontinuation in recipients receiving reduced exposure cyclosporine micro emulsion and corticosteroids plus enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) initially, changed to everolimus at 2 weeks post-transplant. These two groups will be compared to a third control group, who will receive treatment consisting of cyclosporine micro emulsion, enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) and steroids.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
An organism that, as a result of transplantation of donor tissue or cells, consists of two or more cell lines descended from at least two zygotes. This state may result in the induction of donor-specific TRANSPLANTATION TOLERANCE.
Transplantation between individuals of the same species. Usually refers to genetically disparate individuals in contradistinction to isogeneic transplantation for genetically identical individuals.
The study is designed to evaluate whether the initiation of everolimus together with the reduction or discontinuation of calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) will improve graft function in the ma...
This study will assess whether everolimus (RAD001) is effective in preventing cyst and kidney expansion as well as worsening of renal function in patients with ADPKD and whether the applic...
The purpose of this research study is to determine the safety of RAD001(Everolimus) and the highest dose of this drug that can be given to people safely. RAD001(Everolimus) is a drug that...
Until 24 months after renal transplantation, this study is designed to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy comparing concentration-controlled everolimus with reduced dose Neoral® a...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of everolimus in combination with basiliximab and steroids, with and without cyclosporine microemulsion in de novo kidn...
Patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors have limited therapeutic options. Everolimus (RAD001), an inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway, has been shown to incre...
In the case presented here, everolimus was administered after first line therapy with sunitinib in a patient with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. The safety profile was excellent. The prolonged progr...
Everolimus is an inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin, approved in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Besides, mammalian target of rapamycin inhibition has the ability to modulate T-...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most common cause of death in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) as well as in renal transplant recipients (RTR). In this study we sought to evaluate the...
Everolimus (EVE) is a drug widely used in several renal transplant protocols. Although characterized by a relatively low nephrotoxicity, it may induce several adverse effects including severe fibro-in...
