The primary aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of deoxyspergualin after the completion of 6 cycles treatment. The efficacy valuables are histological findings in renal grafts, renal function, proteinuria, graft survival, anti-HLA antibody. The safety data are also evaluated in the study.

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 assess t...
The purpose of this research is to discover the different patterns of cytokine production in patients who may develop Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome-0p (BOS-0p) which means ongoing reje...
The purpose of this study is to see how effective 2 drugs, irbesartan and pravastatin, are at slowing kidney transplant failure. Many kidney transplant patients have some type of chronic ...
Antibody mediated rejection (ABMR) is a unique, significant and often severe form of allograft rejection. This single center, phase I/II, open label single-arm exploratory study focuses on...
- Several studies have shown that about 30% of transplanted kidneys with stable function present with tubule-interstitial mononuclear cell infiltration in protocol biopsies and ...
Chronic rejection of transplanted organs is a major obstacle in organ transplantation. The main symptoms of chronic rejection are vessel occlusion and tissue fibrosis. Macrophages play a crucial role ...
Chronic rejection is the Achilles' heel of modern lung transplantation, characterized by a slow, progressive decline in allograft function. Clinically, this manifests as obstructive disease, restricti...
Little data exists comparing outcomes following BK nephropathy (BKN) versus acute rejection. We reviewed outcomes among recipients who had a primary diagnosis of biopsy-proven BKN or rejection between...
Emerging evidence indicates that acute rejection mainly associated with the inflammatory response is an independent risk factor for chronic rejection after lung transplantation. Monocytes are the main...
The gold standard for the treatment of terminal heart failure and irreversible lung diseases includes thoracic organ transplantation. The major obstacle for long-term survival after successful transpl...
Non-acceptance, negative attitudes, hostility or excessive criticism of the individual which may precipitate feelings of 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.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
