Comparative Study of Modified Release (MR) Tacrolimus/MMF in de Novo Kidney Transplant Recipients
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of Prograf/MMF, Neoral/MMF and Modified Release (MR) Tacrolimus/MMF in de novo kidney transplant recipients.
This will be a 3 arm randomized, open-label, comparative, multi-center study in de novo kidney transplant recipients. Enrollment will include approximately 660 patients at 60-70 centers in the U.S., Canada and South America.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Tacrolimus Modified Release (MR), Tacrolimus, cyclosporine microemulsion, mycophenolate mofetil

Tacrolimus Binding Protein 1a
A 12-KDa tacrolimus binding protein that is found associated with and may modulate the function of calcium release channels. It is a peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase which is inhibited by both tacrolimus (commonly called FK506) and SIROLIMUS.
Tacrolimus Binding Proteins
A family of immunophilin proteins that bind to the immunosuppressive drugs TACROLIMUS (also known as FK506) and SIROLIMUS. EC 5.2.1.-
Tor Serine-threonine Kinases
A serine threonine kinase that controls a wide range of growth-related cellular processes. The protein is referred to as the target of RAPAMYCIN due to the discovery that TACROLIMUS (commonly known as rapamycin) forms an inhibitory complex with TACROLIMUS BINDING PROTEIN 1A that blocks the action of its enzymatic activity.
Members of a family of highly conserved proteins which are all cis-trans peptidyl-prolyl isomerases (PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE). They bind the immunosuppressant drugs CYCLOSPORINE; TACROLIMUS and SIROLIMUS. They possess rotamase activity, which is inhibited by the immunosuppressant drugs that bind to them.
A macrolide isolated from the culture broth of a strain of Streptomyces tsukubaensis that has strong immunosuppressive activity in vivo and prevents the activation of T-lymphocytes in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation in vitro.
Following a transplant for hepatitis C cirrhosis, the infection comes back in 70-90% of cases and over time causes fibrosis and eventually cirrhosis of the new liver. The aim of this study...
The use of steroids after kidney transplantation has been challenged because of variable adverse effects which may increase the patient morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was t...
