This is a double-blind, randomized-withdrawal, placebo-controlled study in kidney transplant patients with AMR to evaluate the efficacy and safety of human plasma-derived C1-esterase inhib...
Excessive inflammation is associated with tissue damage caused by over-activation of the innate immune system. This can range from mild disease to extreme conditions such as multiple organ...
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disorder characterized by congenital lack of functional C1 esterase inhibitor. If not treated adequately, the acute attacks of HAE can be life-threate...
The purpose of this study is to gain safety and tolerability information of single, ascending intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) doses of SHP623 in healthy adults.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous administration of a liquid formulation of C1 esterase inhibitor for the prevention of angioedema attacks in a...
Antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) remains associated with reduced kidney graft survival and no clear prognostic marker is available.
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...
Corneal endothelial dysfunction remains the most frequent indication for corneal transplantation, limited by donor material shortage, poor long-term graft survival, or allogeneic graft rejection. Ther...
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 immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
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.
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.
