Interest in vitamin D has seen an unprecedented revival sparked by the finding that vitamin D has pleiotropic effects with an intriguing link to the critically ill patients. The recent VITdAL-ICU RCT found a significant difference in mortality in patients with severe deficiency when high doses of vitamin D supplementation were administered. Vitamin D deficiency is extremely common in patients with chronic liver disease and/or cirrhosis. It seems to be a marker of severity of t...
INTRODUCTION: Accurate estimation of dry weight (DW) is an important and difficult problem in clinical practice. DW is defined as the lowest weight after hemodialysis (HD) where the patient will not develop symptoms of hypotension and edema, in addition to not using antihypertensives. Achieving a fluid balance benefits the control of blood pressure and reduces cardiovascular risk. In most HD centers, the DW is estimated using a subjective method dependent on the signs and sympt...
Heart transplantation is a life-sustaining therapy that allows patients with either congenital or acquired heart disease and severe cardiac dysfunction to survive. Over time, however, the transplanted heart can develop problems. One of the more common and troubling problems is the development of stenoses, or narrowings, within the coronary arteries. These narrowings, technically referred to as coronary artery vasculopathy (CAV for short), account for the single most common caus...
The present study is to demonstrate the effect of the presence of bacterial translocation detected by bacterial deoxyribonucleic acid (bactDNA) in blood and ascites using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on some haemodynamic and coagulation parameters during a liver transplant procedure.
Hyperkalemia (high potassium in blood) is a common condition found in kidney transplant patients. Risk factors include poor kidney function and exposure to various drugs. Regardless of the causes, current treatment options are limited. Previously, the only available potassium binder for lowering potassium in the blood is sodium polystyrene sulfonate, which has unknown drug interaction profile with transplant medications. Patiromer is a newly approved potassium binder indicated ...
The tacrolimus-Everolimus association is used as an immunospressive treatment after a kidney transplant. It combined immunosupressive properties of both products and reduce the nephrotoxicity of tacrolimus by lowering the dosage. The commercialisation of a new extended release Tacrolimus pharmaceutical form and the lack of information justify a modality of use and tolerence evaluation of this new association, commonly used.
Cancer is a well known complication about long term transplantation. Cancer outcomes are due to the immunosuppressive treatment that prevents transplanted people from rejection. By lowering the effectiveness of the immune system, immune cells are no longer able to seek and destroy cancer cells. The goal here is to study immunes cells population of people that were transplanted 10 years ago and are now treated either by a corticosteroid - azathioprine association, or only by ...
This will be a prospective cohort study of patients with cirrhosis who are listed for liver transplantation. Subjects will undergo geriatric assessments of frailty, functional status, and disability using functional status measures at baseline and at every clinic visit in the pre-transplant setting. Subjects will again undergo functional assessments at every clinic visit through 12 months after transplant.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate a new drug Pembrolizumab in combination with chemotherapy, for the treatment of newly diagnosed Hodgkin lymphoma. The chemotherapy regimen is called ?AVD? and includes three drugs: adriamycin, vinblastin, dacarbazine. Pembrolizumab is currently FDA approved for the treatment of some patients with melanoma, lung cancer and head and neck cancer, but has not yet been approved for the treatment of Hodgkin Lymphoma. The ?AVD? regimen...
To treat an intermediate size patient population of bilateral lung transplant patients with CLAD-0.
This is a double-blind, randomized-withdrawal, placebo-controlled study in kidney transplant patients with AMR to evaluate the efficacy and safety of human plasma-derived C1-esterase inhibitor as add-on to standard of care (IVIG).
To perform a study (100 patients) utilizing Hepatitis C positive donor hearts for hepatitis C negative donors with post-operative surveillance and treatment only if a recipient infection occurs.
Project LIFT is a randomized, controlled trial that tests the effectiveness of a remotely-monitored, home-based exercise program utilizing wearable fitness trackers to monitor steps taken per day, health engagement questions, and financial incentives. 120 subjects will be randomized into 3 arms: 1) usual care - no fitness tracker or incentive, 2) a fitness tracker + no incentives, and 3) fitness tracker plus financial incentives.
Crohn's Disease (CD) is an inflammatory bowel disease. It can lead to significant complications and discomfort in the stomach and intestines. Crohn's disease is a debilitating, incurable disease of immune cells; it affects almost 1 million people in the United States. CD is characterized by inflammation of the stomach and intestine as well as organs outside of the intestines such as the skin, eyes, and joints. Current therapies to treat CD aim to suppress the patient's immune c...
Heart transplantation is an effective life-saving treatment for patients with end-stage heart disease. After a transplant, the new heart may develop narrowing in the arteries, causing heart failure, heart attacks and abnormal heart rhythms. This condition is known as cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV). The disease is very common, affecting almost a third of heart transplant patients by 5 years after transplant. CAV is a serious problem that causes the new heart to fail and is...
Determine the progression free survival of high-risk or relapsed MM patients undergoing non-myeloablative bone marrow allogeneic transplantation (NM-AlloSCT) followed by maintenance therapy with MEDI-551.
BK virus nephropathy (BKVN), a consequence of the strong immunosuppressive therapy given after kidney transplantation, represents a growing problem in the kidney transplant (KT) setting. In recent cohorts, BKVN concerns up to 10% of kidney transplant recipients and early signs of BK virus (BKV) infection as development of asymptomatic viruria and viremia are even much more frequent (40% and 20% of patients, respectively). In this context, finding strategies to prevent BKV infec...
Central venous access device (CVAD)-associated skin impairment (CASI) is a common problem in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. In this prospective randomized pilot study, dressing the CVAD exit site will be compared to no-dressing with respect to CASI and CVAD-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) rates in adult outpatient HSCT recipients. The purpose of this study is to gain information that can be used to design a large randomized controlled tri...
A study of patient adherence and convenience to immunosuppressive agents in newly liver transplant recipients - a prospective, multi-center, open-labeled, randomized clinical trial for comparison between once-daily early conversion and twice-daily tacrolimus formulation.
The investigators hypothesize that perturbations in the intestinal microbiota following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are essential for the development and propagation of acute graft-versus-host disease. Therefore, modification of HSCT recipients' gut microbiota using fecal transplantation from a healthy donor could be used to treat gut acute GVHD. The study evaluates safety and feasibility of fecal microbiota transplantation with frozen capsu...
This study aimed to compare the effect of target-controlled infusion of propofol and sevoflurane as maintenance of anesthesia to intraoperative hemodynamic profile of renal transplant recipient
The aim of this study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a nonmyeloablative conditioning regimen for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in pediatric patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) who have a matched related major ABO-incompatible donor. The nonmyeloablative regimen will use alemtuzumab, total body irradiation (TBI) and sirolimus for immune suppression. This study will expand the access of HSCT for patients with SCD who are currently not eligi...
The purpose of this study is to better estimate the prevalence of urinary tract infections (UTI) in kidney transplant (KIT) recipients, and especially multidrug resistant (MDR) bacteria. KIT recipients have a higher risk of UTI over the 6 first months following the transplantation. Urine culture was done in a city lab or at hospital. Current data on bacteriuria and candiduria lead mostly to hospital data that are incomplete..
Donor and recipient CMV-serostatus is one of the risk factor for CMV infection in solid organ transplantation. Recipients with IgG positive anti-CMV are classified as low-risk patients since it is considered that patients also have specific cellular immunity against CMV. However, investigators group has published that around 25% of solid organ transplant candidates lack CMV-specific CD8+ T-cell response ("humoral/cellular mismatch") and they are at a higher risk of CMV replicat...
Given the role of B cells in the pathophysiology of chronic graft versus host disease (GvHD), the association between elevated BAFF levels post-transplant in abnormal B-cell homeostasis and chronic GvHD, and the efficacy of belimumab in the inhibition of soluble human B lymphocyte stimulator protein (BAFF) signaling, these proof-of-principle findings support the rational for use of belimumab as prophylaxis of chronic GvHD. The investigators propose a pilot and feasibility study...
