The purpose of this study is to determine if one drug is superior to another with regard to safety and the preservation of renal function after a kidney transplant.
To compare renal function (51Cr-EDTA clearance) 12 months posttransplant, in primary renal allograft recipients (from cadaveric donor) at low immunogenic risk, 0 DR mis-match, receiving immunosuppressive therapy with A) Zenapax® (5 doses), CellCept® (1.5 g bid., aiming for TDM for total trough concentrations of 2-6 mg/L) and prednisolone or B) Sandimmun Neoral® (full dose), CellCept® (1.0 g bid.) and prednisolone.
This study will look at the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of cidofovir in kidney transplant patients who have been diagnosed with BK virus nephropathy (BKVN), a viral condition that can cause patients to reject transplanted kidneys. Up to 48 adult (age 18 years and older) kidney or pancreas transplant recipients with newly diagnosed BKVN will receive 1 of 3 cidofovir dose levels or placebo (non medicated substance) to identify the maximum tolerated dose. Dosing will be...
The primary objective is to investigate intralymphocyte concentrations of CsA in renal and heart transplant recipients to elucidate the association between the intracellular concentration and efficacy (rejection episodes and histology) in transplanted patients on CsA based immunosuppressive therapy.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether very high dosages of chemotherapy will improve the chance of surviving cancer.
Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a disease of the liver, which predominantly affects women. It causes slowly progressive liver disease, which eventually causes liver failure, requiring a liver transplant. Several different studies of large patient cohorts indicate that the cause of this disease is likely due to a combination of factors including genetic and environmental. PBC is associated with several other "autoimmune diseases" - recently a gene has been identified to be ab...
This study will test the safety and efficacy of everolimus on heart transplant recipients. This study is not recruiting in the United States.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of EC-MPS in maintenance renal transplant patients who experience gastrointestinal (GI) intolerance due to adverse events associated with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and were converted to EC-MPS.
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact that GI complaints have on patient reported outcomes in renal transplant recipients and to determine if there is improvement in patient reported outcomes when patients are converted to a EC-MPS–based immunosuppressive treatment.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether a switch from mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) to enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) results in improved GI- and/or health-related quality of life outcomes, and to determine the proportion of renal transplant recipients who are experiencing any GI complaints under MMF-based immunosuppressive treatment.
Aim of study is to collect long term safety and tolerability data on enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium with regard to adverse events, serious adverse events, and patient and graft survival. After successful completion of study CERL080A301 study, patients who previously were on enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium or MMF were given opportunity to remain on enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium or convert from MMF to enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium.
Purpose of study is to compare the efficacy of enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium compared to mycophenolate mofetil in Chinese patients (study conducted in China) as measured by the incidence of biopsy proven acute rejection, graft loss, or death within six months of treatment in de novo renal transplant patients.
The trial will compare a group of patients whose immune system is primed with the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine and then given a boost with polysaccharide vaccine (prime-boost strategy) vs. a group vaccinated with the standard 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine alone. It is hypothesized that the conjugate vaccine priming will provide an enhanced response in these immunosuppressed individuals who may respond poorly to standard vaccination.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether a calcineurin inhibitor (CNI)-free regimen with enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) and everolimus is as safe and well-tolerated as the standard regimen containing enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) and cyclosporine microemulsion, but results in better renal function.
The aim of this pilot study is to evaluate efficacy and tolerability of EC-MPS b.i.d, with Cyclosporine microemulsion and steroids in pediatric de novo renal transplant patients. Safety and doses variations are also evaluated.
Primary Objective: - Evaluation of the benefit on renal function of one year of a low dose of ciclosporine versus the usual dose Secondary Objective: - To evaluate the immunosuppressive efficacy and tolerance of the treatment Study Duration: Twelve months for each patient Study Treatment: Ciclosporine Group A: low dose >= 130 µg/l < T0 ciclosporinemia < 200 µg/l; Group B: standard dose >= 200 µg/l < T0 ciclosporinemia < 300 µg/l....
The purpose of this trial is to see whether zoledronic acid is better than pamidronate to treat low bone density in heart and lung transplant patients.
This is an open label, single-center, randomized phase IV pilot study of steroid and calcineurin inhibitor avoidance in renal transplant recipients. All patients will receive two doses of alemtuzumab (Campath-1H, 30mg); one at the time of renal transplant, and one on post-operative day two to achieve peripheral T-cell depletion. Intravenous glucocorticoids will be administered prior to Campath administration to limit cytokine release syndrome in association with this monoclon...
Determine the value of a clinically feasible strategy of therapeutic drug monitoring compared with fixed dosing in de novo MMF treated renal transplant recipients with respect to the incidence of treatment failure.
The survival of children who have received heart transplants has greatly improved over the last ten years. One reason for this is better control over rejection. Rejection medications require a delicate balance of enough medicine to work without causing side effects. It is a goal to avoid both rejection and side effects from the anti-rejection medicines. Usually several medicines are used together to prevent rejection. One of these medicines is often Mycophenolic Acid or Cellcep...
The investigators hypothesize that long-term disease-free survival (DFS) in patients with JMML can be achieved with a treatment of busulfan (BU), cyclophosphamide (CY) and melphalan (L-PAM) followed by hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT).
In this study our hypothesis is that infusion of donor lymphocyte immune cells from the subject's bone marrow donor will activate the subject's immune system to attack their cancer.
The purpose of this study is to understand the pharmacokinetics of sirolimus tablets in different regimens in newly renal transplant patients, and the effect of dosage form conversion on the concentration of sirolimus in stable renal transplant patients. So that we can design a better tacrolimus or cyclosporine/sirolimus/steroid dose regimen for Taiwanese.
Evaluate recovery time on 2.5 mg/Kg/day dose of G-CSF versus 5 mg/Kg/day dose.
