Summary of "Effect of Age on Conversion to Everolimus with Calcineurin Inhibitor Minimization at A Late Post-Transplant Stage."

The purpose of this study was to identify the risk factors for everolimus discontinuation in kidney transplant recipients converted to everolimus with calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) minimization at a late post-transplant stage.

Effects of Conversion From Calcineurin Inhibitors to Sirolimus or Everolimus on Renal Function and Possible Mechanisms in Liver Transplant Recipients.

Mammalian targets of rapamycin inhibitors (mTORIs), including sirolimus and everolimus, are used for minimizing calcineurin inhibitors after liver transplantation. However, head-to-head randomized com...

ERK Inhibitor Enhances Everolimus Efficacy through the Attenuation of dNTP Pools in Renal Cell Carcinoma.

The clinical efficiency of everolimus, an mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor, is palliative as sequential or second-line therapy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, the limited respon...

A randomized trial of everolimus-based quadruple therapy versus standard triple therapy early after lung transplantation.

Calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) therapy after lung transplantation increases risk of kidney failure. Early everolimus-based quadruple low CNI immunosuppression may improve renal function without compromis...

Sirolimus for Secondary Prevention of Skin Cancer in Kidney Transplant Recipients: 5-Year Results.

Purpose Transplant recipients who develop cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas are at high risk for multiple subsequent skin cancers. Sirolimus has been shown to reduce the occurrence of secondary skin ...

Very early introduction of everolimus in de novo liver transplantation: results of a multicenter, prospective, randomized trial (EPOCAL).

Early everolimus introduction and tacrolimus minimization after liver transplantation may represent a novel immunosuppressant approach. This phase 2, multicenter, randomized, open-label trial evaluate...

Alterations in Cognitive Function and Cerebral Blood Flow After Conversion From Calcineurin Inhibitors (CNIs) to Everolimus

The purpose of this study is to learn if changing from Tacrolimus to Everolimus will improve cognitive function by having less effect on brain blood flow.

ASCERTAIN: Assessment of Everolimus in Addition to Calcineurin Inhibitor Reduction in the Maintenance of Renal Transplant Recipients

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A CALCIUM and CALMODULIN-dependent serine/threonine protein phosphatase that is composed of the calcineurin A catalytic subunit and the calcineurin B regulatory subunit. Calcineurin has been shown to dephosphorylate a number of phosphoproteins including HISTONES; MYOSIN LIGHT CHAIN; and the regulatory subunits of CAMP-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASES. It is involved in the regulation of signal transduction and is the target of an important class of immunophilin-immunosuppressive drug complexes.

Compounds that inhibit or block the PHOSPHATASE activity of CALCINEURIN.

A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.

A dual inhibitor of both cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. It exerts an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The drug also enhances pulmonary hypoxic vasoconstriction and has a protective effect after myocardial ischemia.

A family of transcription factors characterized by the presence of highly conserved calcineurin- and DNA-binding domains. NFAT proteins are activated in the CYTOPLASM by the calcium-dependent phosphatase CALCINEURIN. They transduce calcium signals to the nucleus where they can interact with TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR AP-1 or NF-KAPPA B and initiate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of GENES involved in CELL DIFFERENTIATION and development. NFAT proteins stimulate T-CELL activation through the induction of IMMEDIATE-EARLY GENES such as INTERLEUKIN-2.
