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.
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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Comparison of outcomes/safety/and tolerability of SRL/FK/Pred vs. FK/MMF/Pred vs. SRL/Neoral®/Pred in cadaveric and non-HLA identical LRD kidney transplants.
This study is being done to find out which treatment, tacrolimus or sirolimus, leads to better long-term kidney function.
There is no consensus on the best immunosuppressive regimen in elderly people. The aim of this study will be to evaluate the efficacy of sirolimus associated with tacrolimus in elderly kid...
The purpose of this study is to compare treatment with the new drug sirolimus (SRL) versus the standard treatment with cyclosporine (CsA) or tacrolimus in children who have received kidney...
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of cellular immunotherapy with MDR-101 for induction of functional immune tolerance in recipients of human leu...
Accurate assessing donor renal function is crucial to the success of living kidney transplants. We studied the roles of donor kidney glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and donor/recipient body surface a...
People needing kidney transplants in New Zealand can receive organs from deceased donors or from a living kidney donor. This project explored issues surrounding donor recruitment, examining the lived ...
An increasing number of patients are requiring multiple retransplants. We assessed outcomes of third and fourth kidney transplants, to aid decision-making on the most suitable donor type.
Preemptive kidney transplants result in better outcomes and patient experiences than transplantation after dialysis onset. It is unknown how often a person initiates maintenance dialysis prior to livi...
The practice of kidney paired donation (KPD) is expanding annually, offering the opportunity for live donor kidney transplantation to more patients. We sought to identify if voluntary KPD networks suc...
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)
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...
