This open-label, single center study will assess the pharmacokinetics, efficacy and safety of Cellcept in lung allograft recipients. Patients will be split into 2 groups according to the original disease: group A (cystic fibrosis) and group B (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency). All patients will receive CellCept orally, 1.5g twice daily on days 1-30 post transplantation, and 1g twice daily on days 31-90. Anticipated time on study treatment is 90 days, and target sample size is 50-100 individuals.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This 2 arm study will compare the efficacy and safety of two CellCept-containing treatment regimens in de novo liver transplant patients. Patients will be randomized into one of two groups...
The primary objective of this study is to determine whether 4 grams daily of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) results in a greater proportion of individuals adequately exposed as measured by dr...
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 t...
This 2 arm study will compare the efficacy and safety of switching to CellCept combined with different regimens of reduced calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) in patients with liver transplants. ...
This study will assess the efficacy and safety of CellCept(1g or 1.5g po bid for 52 weeks) in patients with pemphigus vulgaris receiving prednisone or other corticosteroids. During the stu...
Comparative analysis of calcineurin-inhibitor-based methotrexate and mycophenolate mofetil-containing regimens for prevention of Graft-versus-Host Disease after reduced intensity conditioning allogeneic transplantation.
The combination of calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) such as tacrolimus (TAC) or cyclosporine (CYSP) with methotrexate (MTX) or with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has been commonly used for Graft-versus-Host ...
CXCR4 blockade is pursued as an alternative to mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) treatment in transplantation based on our previous report that burixafor, through CXCR4 antagonism, mobilizes immunomodulator...
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) encephalitis is a known life-threatening complication following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). However, few studies have focused on the occ...

Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
The transference of either one or both of the lungs from one human or animal to another.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
An organism that, as a result of transplantation of donor tissue or cells, consists of two or more cell lines descended from at least two zygotes. This state may result in the induction of donor-specific TRANSPLANTATION TOLERANCE.
Transplantation between individuals of the same species. Usually refers to genetically disparate individuals in contradistinction to isogeneic transplantation for genetically identical individuals.

Affecting over 8,500 people in the UK, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening inherited diseases. Around half of the CF population can expect to live over 38 years, although improvements in treatments mean a baby born ...
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
