A Pharmacokinetic Study of CellCept (Mycophenolate Mofetil) Versus Mycophenolate Sodium in Kidney Transplant Patients

2014-08-27 03:17:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This open-label, 2-arm study will compare the pharmacokinetics of CellCept and mycophenolate sodium in kidney transplanted patients on a calcineurininhibitor-free mycophenolic acid-based therapy. On the study day patients will take their prescribed medication (either CellCept or mycophenolate sodium). Blood samples will be drawn directly before and at intervals up to 12 hours after intake of the study medication. Anticipated time on study treatment is 12 hours and target sample size is >30.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sodium-glucose transporter that is expressed in the luminal membrane of the PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULES.

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.

Agents that inhibit SODIUM-POTASSIUM-CHLORIDE SYMPORTERS which are concentrated in the thick ascending limb at the junction of the LOOP OF HENLE and KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL. They act as DIURETICS. Excess use is associated with HYPOKALEMIA and HYPERGLYCEMIA.

Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.

The outer zone of the KIDNEY, beneath the capsule, consisting of KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL; and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL.
