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.)
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate the effects of belatacept, relative to tacrolimus, on the incidence of rejection, graft loss and death in subjects receiving a li...
Belatacept is an experimental medication shown in clinical trials to have immune system suppression properties in people who have had kidney transplants. This study will determine whether ...
The purpose of this study is to learn if Belatacept can provide protection from organ rejection following kidney transplantation while avoiding some of the toxic effects of standard immuno...
The purpose of this study is to transition patients who have been stable on Belatacept for one year after kidney transplant from standard 4-week to an investigational 8-week belatacept dos...
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are destroyed, resulting in poor blood sugar control. The purpose of this study is to determin...
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 ...
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...
Hernandez et al. recently reported on several large genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in kidney transplantation(1). In particular, they investigated the effect of either donor SNPs, recipient SN...
The surgical technique with duodeno- duodenal enteroanastomosis of pancreas transplants allows for representative endoscopic ultrasound guided needle biopsies of the donor duodenum and the pancreas gr...
Chronic rejection (CR) is an uncommon but important cause of graft dysfunction, leading to graft loss and often requires re-transplantation. This study evaluates the incidence and outcome of patients ...
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.
