The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that increased dosages of mycophenolic acid in maintenance kidney transplant recipients may cause a reduction in donor-specific antibodies.
The development of donor-specific HLA antibody (DSA) post-transplant has been associated with chronic rejection and graft failure. Mycophenolic Acid (MPA) is thought to be the key drug preventing both cellular and antibody mediated rejections. Several studies have shown that recipients receiving an optimal dose of MPA have fewer antibody mediated rejections and may require a lower dose of calcineurin inhibitors and/or corticosteroids thus reducing side effects and extending graft survival.

Kidney transplantation is the preferred modality for the treatment of patients with end-stage renal disease. Robot-assisted kidney transplantation (RAKT) has been in use since 2002 to reduce morbidity...
This study aimed to analyze adult kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) for the risk of new-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) associated with viral serologies and immunosuppression regimens [...
Electrocardiographic (ECG) changes before and after kidney transplantation are not well-defined. Our aim was to describe the evolution of ECG in patients on dialysis before and after successful kidne...
The transplant community is divided regarding whether substitution with generic immunosuppressants is appropriate for organ transplant recipients. We estimated the rate of uptake over time of generic ...
Heart failure is an important cause of morbidity and mortality following kidney transplantation. Some studies in the general population have shown that the incidence of heart failure has decreased dur...
Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
The transference of a kidney from one human or animal to another.
General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
A heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by renal electrolyte transport dysfunctions. Congenital forms are rare autosomal disorders characterized by neonatal hypertension, HYPERKALEMIA, increased RENIN activity and ALDOSTERONE concentration. The Type I features HYPERKALEMIA with sodium wasting; Type II, HYPERKALEMIA without sodium wasting. Pseudohypoaldosteronism can be the result of a defective renal electrolyte transport protein or acquired after KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
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 ...
