A controlled randomized, open-label, multi-centre study evaluating if an immunosuppressive protocol, based on ATG-induction, once daily tacrolimus-dose (Advagraf®), mycophenolate mofetil and corticosteroid reduces the incidence of chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) after lung transplantation, in comparison with a standard cyclosporin-based protocol.
To evaluate whether the use of a once-daily tacrolimus-dose regimen (Advagraf®), based on anti-thymocyte globuline (Thymoglobulin®) induction, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and corticosteroids, reduces the cumulative incidence of CLAD after de novo lung transplantation at 36 months, in comparison with a twice-daily cyclosporin-based protocol, otherwise identical between groups.

This study evaluates two potential improvements to the standard immunosuppression regimen used at the investigators' institution to prevent rejection of transplanted kidneys. These two po...
This is a Phase II/III, randomized, open-label, active-controlled, multicenter trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of efalizumab compared with cyclosporine (CsA), when both are given...
Study Comparing Efficacy and Safety of Mycophenolate Mofetil (Cellcept) With Delayed Introduction of Sirolimus and Discontinuation of Cyclosporine, With Those of Mycophenolate Mofetil and Long Term Continuation of Cyclosporine in Renal Transplant Recipien
This multicentre, prospective, randomized, open-label study will compare the safety and efficacy of mycophenolate mofetil with delayed introduction of sirolimus and discontinuation of cycl...
Psoriasis is an immuno-mediated skin disorder, which affects about 2-3% of the population worldwide. For moderate-severe forms of psoriasis systemic immunosuppression is the treatment of c...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the combination of rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (Thymoglobulin®), sirolimus (Rapamune®), and mycophenolate mofetil (Cellcept®) ...
The objective of the present study was to assess the effect of cyclosporine (CsA) on the pharmacokinetic parameters of mycophenolic acid (MPA), an active mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) metabolite, and to...
Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), the prodrug of mycophenolic acid (MPA), is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative immunosuppressant in feline medicine. Pharmacokinetic information is not availab...
Mycophenolic acid (MPA) is the active immunosuppressive substance in both mycophenolate mofetil and mycophenolate sodium and it is widely used after organ transplantation. In females taking MPA is ter...

Currently available antifibrotic treatments may slow down disease progression in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), but are associated with potentially significant side effects and are costly. Mycop...
A group of corticosteroids carrying hydroxy groups, usually in the 11- or 17-positions. They comprise the bulk of the corticosteroids used systemically. As they are relatively insoluble in water, salts of various esterified forms are often used for injections or solutions.
A group of CORTICOSTEROIDS that affect carbohydrate metabolism (GLUCONEOGENESIS, liver glycogen deposition, elevation of BLOOD SUGAR), inhibit ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE secretion, and possess pronounced anti-inflammatory activity. They also play a role in fat and protein metabolism, maintenance of arterial blood pressure, alteration of the connective tissue response to injury, reduction in the number of circulating lymphocytes, and functioning of the central nervous system.
A widely used anti-inflammatory agent isolated from the licorice root. It is metabolized to GLYCYRRHETINIC ACID, which inhibits 11-BETA-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES and other enzymes involved in the metabolism of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Therefore, glycyrrhizic acid, which is the main and sweet component of licorice, has been investigated for its ability to cause hypermineralocorticoidism with sodium retention and potassium loss, edema, increased blood pressure, as well as depression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.
A 17-KDa cytoplasmic PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE involved in immunoregulation. It is a member of the cyclophilin family of proteins that binds to CYCLOSPORINE.
Hemagglutination test in which Coombs' reagent (antiglobulin, or anti-human globulin rabbit immune serum) is added to detect incomplete (non-agglutinating, univalent, blocking) antibodies coating erythrocytes. The direct test is applied to red cells which have been coated with antibody in vivo (e.g., in hemolytic disease of newborn, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and transfusion reactions). The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibody (e.g., in detection of incompatibility in cross-matching tests, detection and identification of irregular antibodies, and in detection of antibodies not identifiable by other means).
