To assess equivalence in the rates of functional graft survival at 12 months after transplantation in patients receiving induction therapy with cyclosporin (CsA, Neoral) and Rapamune® followed by CsA dose reduction and concentration-controlled Rapamune® versus induction with CsA and Rapamune® followed by discontinuation of CsA and concentration-controlled Rapamune®.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

The aim of our study is to investigate whether Rapamune used at a low dose (2 mg/d) retards cyst growth and slows renal functional deterioration in patients with ADPKD.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether in high-risk kidney transplant patients (patients whose previous kidney transplant failed, have a high PRA lab test result or are of African-...
The purpose of this study is to obtain data on the effectiveness and safety of Rapamune under everyday conditions
Compare kidney function as measured by calculated creatinine clearance (using the method by Nankivell)1 at 12 months after transplantation in subjects receiving induction therapy with cycl...
Reducing drug side effects is a key issue in transplantation. One class of drugs commonly used, calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs), is associated with negative side effects, namely, toxicity t...
Management of patients with chronic kidney disease has evolved since the last Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes clinical practice guideline was published in 2012. This article reviews the most ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects millions of people and constitutes a major health and financial burden worldwide. People of African descent are at an increased risk of developing kidney disease, ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide public health problem. Regardless of the underlying primary disease, CKD tends to progress to end-stage kidney disease, resulting in unsatisfactory and cost...
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
An autoimmune disease of the KIDNEY and the LUNG. It is characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies targeting the epitopes in the non-collagenous domains of COLLAGEN TYPE IV in the basement membranes of kidney glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) and lung alveoli (PULMONARY ALVEOLI), and the subsequent destruction of these basement membranes. Clinical features include pulmonary alveolar hemorrhage and glomerulonephritis.
KIDNEY injuries associated with diabetes mellitus and affecting KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; ARTERIOLES; KIDNEY TUBULES; and the interstitium. Clinical signs include persistent PROTEINURIA, from microalbuminuria progressing to ALBUMINURIA of greater than 300 mg/24 h, leading to reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and END-STAGE RENAL DISEASE.
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 ...
