Comparison of Tacrolimus and Myfortic Versus Tacrolimus and Sirolimus

2014-08-27 03:17:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators center has also analyzed data over the last 7 years from deceased donor (DD) and living donor (LD) kidney transplant recipients who were randomized into 3 immunosuppressive arms between 2000 and 2001. Thus the goal of the investigators study is to reduce the toxic effects of traditional immunosuppressive regimens involving high-dose calcineurin inhibitor agents by comparing low-dose TAC-MYF with low-dose TAC and de novo SRL regimens. In order to minimize exposure to TAC, the investigators center has previously shown favorable outcomes using combination Thymoglobulin and Zenapax (Daclizumab) for anti-lymphocyte induction in the investigator population of patients.

Description

A total of 150 randomized patients divided into 2 arms: 75 patients will be randomized to receive TAC-SRL, and 75 patients to receive TAC-MYF.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A 12-KDa tacrolimus binding protein that is found associated with and may modulate the function of calcium release channels. It is a peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase which is inhibited by both tacrolimus (commonly called FK506) and SIROLIMUS.

A family of immunophilin proteins that bind to the immunosuppressive drugs TACROLIMUS (also known as FK506) and SIROLIMUS. EC 5.2.1.-

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.

Members of a family of highly conserved proteins which are all cis-trans peptidyl-prolyl isomerases (PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE). They bind the immunosuppressant drugs CYCLOSPORINE; TACROLIMUS and SIROLIMUS. They possess rotamase activity, which is inhibited by the immunosuppressant drugs that bind to them.

A transplantable carcinoma of the rat that originally appeared spontaneously in the mammary gland of a pregnant albino rat, and which now resembles a carcinoma in young transplants and a sarcoma in older transplants. (Stedman, 25th ed)
