Kidney and Blood Stem Cell Transplantation That Eliminates Requirement for Immunosuppressive Drugs

The Stanford Medical Center Program in Multi-Organ Transplantation and the Division of Bone Marrow Transplantation are enrolling patients into a research study to determine if blood stem cells injected after kidney transplantation will change the immune system such that immunosuppressive drugs can be completely withdrawn. Patients must have a healthy, completely human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched brother or sister as the organ and stem cell donor. One to two months b...

Delayed Blood Stem Transplantation in HLA Matched Kidney Transplant Recipients to Eliminate Immunosuppressive Drugs.

The study will determine whether patients with functioning Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) matched kidney transplants for at least one year and who want to discontinue immunosuppressive drugs can be treated with Total Lymphoid Irradiation (TLI) and rabbit Anti-Thymocyte Globulin (rATG) and an HLA matched donor hematopoietic progenitor cell infusion such that their drugs are successfully withdrawn while maintaining normal renal function.

Trial of Rituximab Given Pre-Transplant to Sensitised Live Donor Kidney Recipients

About one third of prospective kidney transplant recipients have antibodies in their blood directed against the tissues of their only available kidney donor. Recently, "desensitisation" treatments when administered pre-transplant have allowed successful transplantation of these patients despite high rates of acute antibody mediated rejection (AAMR). The investigators propose to test in a randomised controlled trial whether rituximab, a monoclonal antibody that depletes B-lympho...

Rituximab and Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) for Desensitization in Renal Transplantation

The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and efficacy of IVIG in combination with Rituximab to lower the level of HLA-sensitive antibodies and block their ability to attack a transplanted organ in patients who are highly HLA-sensitized and are awaiting transplantation.

ORANGE Study: An Observational Study on Renal Function in Kidney Transplant Patients on Immunosuppressive Therapy Containing CellCept (Mycophenolate Mofetil)

This observational study will evaluate renal function in patients who underwent renal allograft transplantation and are started on combined immunosuppressive treatment containing CellCept (mycophenolate mofetil). Eligible patients will be followed for 12 months following transplantation.

Randomized Trial of Cyclosporine and Tacrolimus Therapy With Steroid Withdrawal in Living-Donor Renal Transplantation

The use of steroids after kidney transplantation has been challenged because of variable adverse effects which may increase the patient morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to compare the safety and efficacy of immunosuppressive regimens consisting of cyclosporine (CsA) and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) or tacrolimus (TAC) and MMF after steroid withdrawal 6 months after kidney transplantation in low-risk patients.

Belatacept Evaluation of Nephroprotection and Efficacy as First-line Immunosuppression (BENEFIT)

The purpose of this study is to learn if Belatacept can provide protection from organ rejection following kidney transplantation while avoiding some of the toxic effects of standard immunosuppressive medications such as kidney damage. Effects on kidney function and patient survival as well as drug safety will also be studied.


Calcineurin Inhibitor-free, Steroid-free Immunosuppressive Regimen in Simultaneous Islet-Kidney Transplantation for Uremic Type 1 Diabetic Patients

The investigators hypothesize that a calcineurin inhibitor-free, steroid-free, co-stimulatory blockade-based immunosuppressive regimen, in combination with a GLP-1 agonist, will reduce the islet mass required to achieve and sustain insulin independence following simultaneous islet-kidney transplantation.

Combination Immunosuppressive Therapy to Prevent Kidney Transplant Rejection in Adults

Transplant rejection occurs when a patient's body does not recognize the new organ and attacks it. Patients who have kidney transplants must take drugs to prevent transplant rejection. Alemtuzumab is a man-made antibody used to treat certain blood disorders. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of using alemtuzumab in combination with two other drugs, sirolimus and tacrolimus, to prevent organ rejection after kidney transplantation. This study will ...

A Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of a Tacrolimus Based Immunosuppressive Regimen in Stable Kidney Transplant Recipients Converted From Cyclosporine Based Immunosuppressive Regimen

The objective of this study is to observe and evaluate the change in renal function following conversion from cyclosporine-based immunosuppressive regimen to tacrolimus-based one.

A Conversion Study to Assess Safety and Efficacy of a MR4 Based Immunosuppressive Regimen in Stable Kidney Recipients

Assessment of the safety and the efficacy of a tacrolimus modified release (MR4) based immunosuppressive regimen in stable kidney transplant subjects converted on a 1:1 (mg:mg) basis from a Prograf® based immunosuppressive regimen.

Evaluation of 2 Techniques of Apheresis to Desensitize ABO Incompatible Kidney Transplant Candidates

Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for end-stage renal disease. ABO incompatible (ABOi) living donor kidney transplantation is one of the best ways to expand the donors' pool. However, breaking the ABO barrier is possible only with a preconditioning regimen that includes 1) an immunosuppressive strategy using a B-cell depleting agent (rituximab), an induction therapy with polyclonal antibodies, and a maintenance triple immunosuppressive therapy based on calcineur...

Functional Non Specific Immunity Monitoring After Kidney Transplantation Using an Interferon Gamma Test

The best renal replacement therapy is kidney transplantation. It improves end-stage renal kidney disease (ESRD) patients quality of life and increases their survival, but still remains risky. Morbidity in kidney transplantation is dominated by two main complications : acute graft rejection and infections. To maintain an accurate balance between rejection and infection, immunosuppressive therapy must to be used with caution and kept into a tight spectrum. The investigator...

The Adherence of Immunosuppressive Therapy Including Tacrolimus Once-daily in Italian Kidney Transplant Recipients

Non-adherence is widespread in the transplant community. Addressing issues associated with non-adherence remains a key challenge in transplantation, in part due to the difficulty in assessing its prevalence, as there is currently no 'gold standard' for use in routine clinical practice. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the non-adherence to immunosuppressive therapy, including tacrolimus once-daily, among Italian kidney transplant recipients receiving. Along with n...

Study of Islet Transplantation in Type 1 Diabetic Kidney Transplant Recipients

The purpose of the study is to learn if islet transplantation is an effective treatment for Type 1 diabetes in people who have had a kidney transplant. The primary objectives of the study are: - To set up islet transplantation in patients who have had a kidney transplant and who are using an immunosuppressive regimen that works - To find out if Activated Protein C as therapy to improve islet engraftment The Secondary objective of the study is: - T...

Combined Kidney and Bone Marrow Transplantation to Prevent Kidney Transplant Rejection

In small initial studies, combined kidney and bone marrow transplants from the same donor have permitted some individuals to stop taking anti-rejection medicines without rejecting their transplant. This clinical trial will study this method in a greater number of people to determine if it is indeed effective and safe.

Individualization of the Immunological Risk Based on Selective Biomarkers in Living-donor Renal Recipients

This is a clinical trial comparing the immunosuppressive treatment determined according to two biomarkers, donor-specific IFN-γ ELISPOT and Mismatch of HLA between donor and recipient, in patients undergoing low immunological risk live donor kidney transplantation

Infusion of T-Regulatory Cells in Kidney Transplant Recipients (The ONE Study)

This research study is for patients who are going to receive a kidney transplant from a living donor. After kidney transplantation, it is necessary for transplant recipients to take "immunosuppressive drugs". These drugs work by preventing the body's immune cells from attacking and "rejecting" the new kidney. Taking these drugs long-term may also cause harm to the transplanted kidney. Therefore, the transplant community is very interested in finding ways to decrease immunosupp...

Rituximab for Prevention of Rejection After Renal Transplantation

Our standard immunosuppressive treatment after renal transplantation is a combination of tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and prednisolone. With this regimen the incidence of acute rejection within the first six months after transplantation has dropped to about 20%. The main challenge at present remains to improve long-term outcome by preventing chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN). Since acute rejection is a strong predictor of CAN, a further decrease in the incidence of acut...

Cyclophosphamide W/or W/Out Rituximab and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Recurrent Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as rituximab can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells. It is not yet known if combining rituximab w...

Regimen Optimization Study

Patients who undergo a kidney transplant require prolonged therapy with drugs that suppress the immune system (called immunosuppressive regimens) to stop the immune system from attacking the transplanted kidney in order to limit damage to or the possibility of rejecting the transplanted kidney. The purpose of this study is to evaluate benefits and risks of three immunosuppressive regimens (belatacept with mycophenolate mofetil or belatacept with everolimus, tacrolimus with myco...

Iguratimod in Kidney Transplant Recepients

The objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of iguratimod concomitant with conventional immunosuppressive drugs on preventing antibody-induced rejection in HLA Highly mismatched Kidney Transplant recipients.

The Vienna Prograf and Endothelial Progenitor Cell Study

The aim of the study is to determine if the conversion from the immunosuppressive agent cyclosporine to tacrolimus contributes to an improvement of the cardiovascular risk factors, better kidney function and immune system.

Cyclophosphamide, Rituximab, and Either Prednisone or Methylprednisolone in Treating Patients With Lymphoproliferative Disease After Solid Organ Transplantation

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy such as cyclophosphamide, prednisone, and methylprednisolone use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Monoclonal antibodies such as rituximab can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Combining cyclophosphamide and either prednisone or methylprednisolone with rituximab may be effective in treating lymphoproliferative disea...
