Study Comparing the Safety and Efficacy of BMS-224818 to Cyclosporine, in Patients Receiving a Kidney Transplant, When Used in Combination With CellCept, Simulect, and Corticosteroids.

2014-08-27 03:56:11 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to see if BMS-224818 treatment will be as efficacious as cyclosporine at preventing acute rejection, and a superior safety / tolerability profile (better kidney function, better blood pressure, less lipid problems, less diabetes mellitus, etc.)

Urinary miR-155-5p and CXCL10 as prognostic and predictive biomarkers of rejection, graft outcome and treatment response in kidney transplantation.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) may be useful biomarkers of rejection and allograft outcome in kidney transplantation. Elevated urinary CXCL10 levels have been associated with acute rejection (AR) and may predict ...

Renal PGC1α May Be Associated with Recovery after Delayed Graft Function.

Delayed renal graft function (DGF) contributes to the determination of length of hospitalization, risk of acute rejection, and graft loss. Existing tools aid the diagnosis of specific DGF etiologies s...

Reply to Hernandez et al - GWAS of acute renal graft rejection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.

A form of ischemia-reperfusion injury occurring in the early period following transplantation. Significant pathophysiological changes in MITOCHONDRIA are the main cause of the dysfunction. It is most often seen in the transplanted lung, liver, or kidney and can lead to GRAFT REJECTION.

A general term for the complex phenomena involved in allo- and xenograft rejection by a host and graft vs host reaction. Although the reactions involved in transplantation immunology are primarily thymus-dependent phenomena of cellular immunity, humoral factors also play a part in late rejection.

An immune response with both cellular and humoral components, directed against an allogeneic transplant, whose tissue antigens are not compatible with those of the recipient.

Immunological rejection of leukemia cells following bone marrow transplantation.
