The purpose of the study is to see if campath-1H can be used in first time renal transplant subjects to prevent rejection and reduce the overall amount of anti-rejection medications that patients take on a daily basis.
Twenty nine primary recipients of either a live donor or deceased donor renal transplant were enrolled in this study. Subjects were administered two 20mg doses of Campath-1H antibody therapy (Day 0 and Day 1) in combination with a short course of corticosteroids, and maintenance sirolimus.
Subjects were followed for 3 years to compare the incidence and severity of rejection episodes, complications related to the immunosuppression, including infections, malignancies and adverse events. All subjects underwent protocol renal transplant biopsies at 6 and 12 months (unless medically contraindicated).

Renal transplant patients have a higher risk for malignancies of the renal transplant. In most cases suspected renal malignancies will be detected during the regular ultrasound follow-up and will requ...
Renal transplant recipients are exposed to immunosuppressive treatment which may increase the risk for developing malignancies. Limited data exists concerning the occurrence of multiple primary malign...
Post-transplant hypertension is highly prevalent in renal transplant recipients and is a risk factor for graft loss, cardiovascular disease and death. Glucocorticoid is used to prevent rejection, but ...

Organ shortage has long been an obstacle to transplant procedures. As acceptance of aging kidneys from expanded criteria donors increases, the long-term outcomes of renal allografts could be unsatisfa...
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Distention of KIDNEY with the presence of PUS and suppurative destruction of the renal parenchyma. It is often associated with renal obstruction and can lead to total or nearly total loss of renal function.
The amount of the RENAL BLOOD FLOW that is going to the functional renal tissue, i.e., parts of the KIDNEY that are involved in production of URINE.
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 ...
