Study Comparing Sirolimus With Cyclosporine in a Calcineurin Inhibitor (CNI)-Free Regimen in Kidney Transplant Recipients

The purpose of this study is to determine if one drug is superior to another with regard to safety and the preservation of renal function after a kidney transplant.

Study Evaluating Sirolimus in the Treatment of Kidney Transplant

The aim of this study is to test whether withdrawal of calcineurin inhibitors, followed by treatment with sirolimus, may improve renal function in renal transplant recipients with chronic ...

Comparison of Sirolimus to Tacrolimus for Long Term Therapy in Kidney Transplant With no Steroids

Kidney transplant patients will be treated with Thymoglobulin (5 days), tacrolimus (Prograf), and mycophenolate mofetil (Cellcept) from the time of transplant. They will only receive stero...

The Comparison of Tacrolimus and Sirolimus Immunosuppression Based Drug Regimens in Kidney Transplant Recipients

This study is being done to find out which treatment, tacrolimus or sirolimus, leads to better long-term kidney function.

Sirolimus Associated With Tacrolimus at Low Doses in Elderly Kidney Transplant Patients

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A macrolide compound obtained from Streptomyces hygroscopicus that acts by selectively blocking the transcriptional activation of cytokines thereby inhibiting cytokine production. It is bioactive only when bound to IMMUNOPHILINS. Sirolimus is a potent immunosuppressant and possesses both antifungal and antineoplastic properties.

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.

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

Long convoluted tubules in the nephrons. They collect filtrate from blood passing through the KIDNEY GLOMERULUS and process this filtrate into URINE. Each renal tubule consists of a BOWMAN CAPSULE; PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE; LOOP OF HENLE; DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE; and KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCT leading to the central cavity of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS) that connects to the URETER.
