This is an open-label, single arm trial in which patient who have ongoing antibody mediated rejection of a kidney transplant deemed refractory to maximal medical therapy are given the complement inhibitor C1-INH (Berinert) in an effort to protect the graft from ongoing antibody mediated injury. A maximum of 5 patients will be enrolled.

About one third of prospective kidney transplant recipients have antibodies in their blood directed against the tissues of their only available kidney donor. Recently, "desensitisation" tr...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety, effect, and pharmacology of C1 Esterase Inhibitor (human) in kidney transplant patients with Antibody-Mediated Rejection (AMR)...
Organ transplantation offers the only hope for a normal life for patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis (ESRD). For the highly-sensitized patient, patients with antibodies to hu...
Late antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) after kidney transplantation is defined as a separate rejection entity. So far, no appropriate treatment has been established for this rejection type...
This study aims to better characterise B cell phenotype and functional abnormalities in kidney transplant patients producing donor specific antibody (DSA) and in those with chronic antibod...
Sensitization to human leukocyte antigens (HLA) remains a significant immunologic barrier to successful transplantation. Identifying immune mechanisms responsible for antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR...
Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) usually starts with generation of donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA), arising from a B-cell response to antigen recognition. In vitro and preclinical data demon...
Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) currently represents one of the main problems for clinical management of heart transplant because of its diagnostic complexity and poor evidences supporting treatment...
Induction immunosuppression decreases the risk for acute rejection and improves graft outcomes in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs). We aimed to compare the outcomes of induction with Thymoglobulin ...
Despite advances in immunosuppressive therapy, rejection still remains the main obstacle to a successful transplant. This study aims to explore the gene expression profile of the rejection process in ...
A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.
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.
Fluorescent antibody technique for visualizing antibody-bacteria complexes in urine. The presence or absence of antibody-coated bacteria in urine correlates with localization of urinary tract infection in the kidney or bladder, respectively.
Those manifestations of the immune response which are mediated by antigen-sensitized T-lymphocytes via lymphokines or direct cytotoxicity. This takes place in the absence of circulating antibody or where antibody plays a subordinate role.
Antibody-mediated immune response. Humoral immunity is brought about by ANTIBODY FORMATION, resulting from TH2 CELLS activating B-LYMPHOCYTES, followed by COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
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...
