This study introduces a new optimization immunosuppressive regimen associating tacrolimus at a reduced dose and enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium at an increased dose in order to slow down renal function worsening and to prevent the progression of chronic allograft nephropathy, while maintaining the same efficacy, in maintenance renal transplant recipients.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS), Tacrolimus, EC-MPS, Tacrolimus, Corticosteroids

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 surviv...
Aim of study is to collect long term safety data on enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium 720 mg bid in combination with cyclosporine with/without steroids in regard to adverse events, serio...
This 2 arm study will compare the efficacy and safety of CellCept, combined with low or standard dose tacrolimus plus corticosteroids, in patients with kidney transplants. Patients will be...
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...
This study will investigate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of EC-MPS with tacrolimus at both reference and reduced levels. This study will take into account safety aspects such as...
The aim of this study was to characterize the pharmacokinetics of mycophenolic acid (MPA) and mycophenolic acid glucuronide (MPAG) in Chinese renal transplant patients taking enteric-coated mycophenol...
Tacrolimus, a critical dose drug, is widely used in transplantation. Knowing the contribution of genetic factors, which significantly influence tacrolimus variability, is beneficial in the personaliza...
Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of tacrolimus, based on blood concentrations, shows an imperfect correlation with the occurrence of rejection. Here, we tested whether measuring NFATc1 amplification,...
Tacrolimus is currently the cornerstone of immunosuppressive protocols for renal transplant recipients. Despite therapeutic whole blood monitoring, tacrolimus is associated with nephrotoxicity and it ...
To compare the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at 12 months together with other outcomes among adult kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) who received extended release, once daily tacrolim...
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.
A family of immunophilin proteins that bind to the immunosuppressive drugs TACROLIMUS (also known as FK506) and SIROLIMUS. EC 5.2.1.-
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.
Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
