Use of Atorvastatin (Lipitor) to Decrease Panel Reactive Antibody Titers

The purpose of this study is to identify subjects who are highly sensitized with antibodies. It is difficult for these patients to find suitable kidneys. We propose to treat such patients to decrease the antibodies in such a way, that it may become possible to safely transplant kidneys into them.

The Use of Hepatitis C Positive Kidneys in Hepatitis C Negative Kidney Transplant Recipients

This is an open-label, pilot trial to test the safety and efficacy of transplantation of kidneys from hepatitis C seropositive non-viremic (HCV Ab+/NAT-) and HCV seropositive viremic (HCV Ab+/NAT+) donors to HCV seronegative recipients on the kidney transplant waitlist. Treatment and prophylaxis will be administered using a transmission-triggered approach for the first scenario (HCV Ab+/NAT- donors, arm 1) and a prophylaxis approach for the later scenario (HCV Ab+/NAT+ donors, ...

Early Chimerism Following Allogeneic Stem-Cell Transplant

Allogeneic stem cell transplant (allo-SCT) is a common treatment for variety of blood cancers. To determine how much of your cells are from your donor after transplant, doctors complete a "chimerism analysis" or a test of your cells to look at the DNA. Chimerism testing helps doctors predict graft rejection or recurrence of disease. Doctors at NCCC do chimerism testing routinely and it is usually done between 30 and 100 days after transplantation. The researchers believe that a...

Novel Strategies for Innovating Deceased Donor Procurement

Despite many efforts to increase the size of the donor pool, there is a large and growing disparity between the number of donor kidneys available for transplantation and the number of patients on the transplant waiting list. Increasing the quality of currently available donor kidneys would potentially improve the longevity of deceased donor kidney transplants by years, thus increasing the rate of transplantation patients on the kidney transplant waiting list. In addition, recip...

Mode of Drainage Of Bilaterally Obstructed Kidneys

Bilaterally obstructed kidneys could be caused by benign or malignant causes it could lead to renal failure which can be avoided by urgent drainage either by PCN or DJ , The aim is to determine whether unilateral or bilateral drainage make a difference in improvement of renal function of bilaterally obstructed kidneys and whether that improvement relays on the cause of the obstruction. The investigators will do that by doing a prospective comparative study on patients presente...

Kidney Transplant Outcome and Organ Acceptance Practice Pattern: A Nationwide Analyses in the US and France

Despite the considerable advances in short-term outcomes, kidney transplant recipients continue to suffer from late allograft failure, and little improvement has been made over the past 15 years. The worldwide scarcity of donated kidneys and the decline in the number of living donor transplants have prompted a variety of efforts to expand the organ supply, such as accepting organs from donors who were older or had comorbidities or other injuries. Two major initiatives from the...

Mechanical Ventilation in Brain-injured Patients

Protective ventilation (association of a tidal volume < 8 ml/kg with a positive end expiratory pressure) is poorly used in severe brain-injured patients. Moreover, a systematic approach to extubation may decrease the rate of extubation failure and enhance outcomes of brain-injured patients. We hypothesized that medical education and implementation of an evidence-base care bundle associating protective ventilation and systemic approach to extubation can reduce the duratio...

Live Donors for Kidney Transplants

On a yearly basis there are approximately 12,000 kidney transplants in the United States. Presently there are approximately 40,000 patients awaiting a transplant with only 5,000 available donors. Due to the obvious difference between organ supply and demand, live donors have become a standard source of kidneys for transplantation. Research has proven that kidneys from living donors are superior to cadaveric donors (kidneys harvested from a deceased individual). Kidneys from ...

Clinical Impact of Hypothermic Machine Perfusion in Renal Transplant Recipients

This is a multi-centers prospective, randomized, controlled trial. This trial will investigate the clinical outcome of kidney transplant recipients whose kidneys are under two different forms of organ preservation--hypothermic machine perfusion vs. static cold storage. Factors during the machine perfusion, such as the pressure, flow rate, and resistance index will also be investigated.

RCT Comparing Immunosuppressive Regimens in Elderly Renal Transplant Recipients

Open label, randomized, multicenter, intervention trial comparing standard immunosuppression with tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil with a low exposure tacrolimus regimen in combination with everolimus. The primary objective is to test the hypothesis that an age-adapted immunosuppressive regimen targeted at reduced immunosuppression with low calcineurin inhibitor (tacrolimus) exposure in combination with everolimus will result in improved outcome in elderly recipients of A:...

L-arginine for Prevention of Kidney Damage in Liver Transplant Recipients

Chronic renal insufficiency is a common and important health problem that causes morbidity and mortality among patients who have undergone liver transplantation. It is mainly caused by drugs (calcineurin inhibitors) that are used to prevent or treat rejection and once established, there is no effective treatment. This research investigates whether L-arginine can reverse the effects of calcineurin inhibitors on the kidneys and thus prevent renal insufficiency in liver transpla...

Heme Arginate in Transplantation Study

Organ shortage for transplant has necessitated use of kidneys from older donors, increasing the chance that the kidney will not work immediately or for as long as expected. The investigators gave the drug heme arginate (HA) to 20 kidney transplant patients in the first 24 hours after transplant, and showed that it may reduce kidney injury and is safe. The investigators plan to conduct a large study recruiting 600 patients to determine whether HA treatment increases the number o...

Prevention of De Novo HCV With Antiviral HCV Therapy Post-Liver and Post-Kidney Transplant

In this study, subjects that do not have Hepatitis C virus (HCV) will be transplanted with livers or kidneys from donors who do have HCV. Medications that are used to treat HCV will be given to the study subjects shortly after transplant to protect them from developing the problems HCV can cause to the liver.

Anti-T-Lymphocyte Globulin (ATG) in Renal Transplantation of Kidneys With a Non-Heart-Beating (NHB) Donor

One of the greatest problems in renal transplantation is the shortage of donor kidneys. Kidneys of non-heart-beating donors (NHB) are a possible solution, but transplantation is accompanied with a high percentage of acute renal failure, caused by ischemia-reperfusion injury. The increased ischemia-reperfusion injury results in an increased immune activation, which can lead to more injury of the kidney and additional acute rejections. The hypothesis of this trial is that ischemi...

Early Detection of Graft-Versus-Host Disease in Patients Undergoing a Donor Bone Marrow Transplant

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood in the laboratory from patients who have undergone a donor bone marrow transplant may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to graft-versus-host disease. It may also help doctors predict how patients will respond to a donor bone marrow transplant. PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at early detection of graft-versus-host disease in patients undergoing a donor bone marrow transplant.

CLAD Phenotype Specific Risk Factors and Mechanisms.

While many patients experience benefits from transplant, complications such as infections and lung rejection may affect long term survival and quality of life. In this study doctors are looking at a complication called Chronic Lung Allograft Dysfunction (CLAD). CLAD is thought to be chronic rejection of the lung by the immune system and is the leading cause of death after lung transplantation. The purpose of this study is to help doctors determine: - why some people ...

Predictors of Weaning Outcomes for Brain Injured Patients

Brian injured patients are predisposed to various complications related to mechanical ventilation. Appropriate decision making of the weaning is crucial and validated predictive parameters are desirable. In present study, the investigators aim to a) validate the electrical activity of diaphragm (EAdi) derived parameters, and b) evaluate the traditional predictive parameters in weaning prediction in brain injured patients.

Donor-Derived Viral Specific T-cells (VSTs) for Prophylaxis Against Viral Infections After Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant

The purpose of this research study is to learn more about the use of viral specific T-lymphocytes (VSTs) to prevent viral infections that may happen after allogeneic stem cell transplant. Allogeneic means the stem cells come from another person. VSTs are cells specially designed to fight viral infections that may happen after a stem cell transplant (SCT). Stem cell transplant reduces your ability to fight infections. Viral infections are a common problem after transplant...

Incidence and Risk Factors for Delirium in Severely Injured Patients

Delirium is very common in intensive care unit (ICU) patients and leads to poor outcomes. There is little information on delirium in injured patients however. This study determined the incidence and risk factors for delirium in severely injured patients.

A Study That Will Look at the Impact of Immunosuppression on Antibody Production in Kidney Transplant Recipients.

This study is being done to collect blood and bone marrow samples for biologic studies of antibody producing cells. Donor specific antibodies can cause damage to the kidneys after they are transplanted. The study will look at the impact of immunosuppression on antibody production by antibody producing cells.

Conditioning Regimen and the Transplantation of Unrelated Donor Umbilical Cord Blood in Patients With Hematologic Malignancies.

The traditional way of doing a donor transplant is to give high doses of chemotherapy and radiation before giving the stem cells. However, high doses of chemotherapy and radiation can have serious side-effects. The doctors think that the transplant will be safer and more likely to be successful with reduced doses of chemotherapy and radiation. The purpose of this study is to find out how good a combination of chemotherapy and radiation at reduced doses followed by a cord blood ...
