The purpose of this prospectively randomized multicentre study was to prove the efficacy and safety of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) to preventing graft rejection and improvement of clear graft survival following high-risk keratoplasty.
The patients of the MMF group receive MMF orally 2x1 g daily for 6 months. Endpoints were immune reaction free and clear graft survival and the occurence of side-effects.

The primary objective of this study is to determine whether 4 grams daily of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) results in a greater proportion of individuals adequately exposed as measured by dr...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and the tolerability of the substitution of mycophenolate mofetil for enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium in a population of stable rena...
Coadministration of tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil is frequent in kidney transplantation. Due to narrow therapeutic range of tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil, therapeutic drug mo...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the effects of bile externalization and antibiotic gut sterilization on the pharmacokinetics of mycophenolate mofetil in patients who have undergone orthotopic li...
Evaluate renal graft function (based on the calculated Glomerular Filtration Rate) at 12 months after transplantation in patients receiving either a regimen of sirolimus plus mycophenolate...
Comparative analysis of calcineurin-inhibitor-based methotrexate and mycophenolate mofetil-containing regimens for prevention of Graft-versus-Host Disease after reduced intensity conditioning allogeneic transplantation.
The combination of calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) such as tacrolimus (TAC) or cyclosporine (CYSP) with methotrexate (MTX) or with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has been commonly used for Graft-versus-Host ...
CXCR4 blockade is pursued as an alternative to mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) treatment in transplantation based on our previous report that burixafor, through CXCR4 antagonism, mobilizes immunomodulator...
The transplant community is divided regarding whether substitution with generic immunosuppressants is appropriate for organ transplant recipients. We estimated the rate of uptake over time of generic ...
Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) associated vasculitides include granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA, previously called Wegener's), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) and eosinophilic granul...
A local immune response has been implicated in the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), but it is unclear if systemic immunosuppressive/immunomodulatory therapy (IMT) protects again...
New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
Partial or total replacement of the CORNEA from one human or animal to another.
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.
The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.
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.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
