Hoffmann-La Roche
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00121784
First received: July 15, 2005

  Purpose

Heart transplant patients on a standard care regimen of CNI, MMF, and corticosteroids will enter the study 4-6 weeks post-transplant. At 3 months after transplant, patients will be randomized to either continue this regimen or CNI therapy will be discontinued and replaced by sirolimus therapy (in combination with MMF and corticosteroids). The effect of these 2 regimens on efficacy, safety and renal function will be evaluated.The anticipated time on study treatment is 1-2 years and the target sample size is 500+ individuals.

Further study details as provided by Hoffmann-La Roche:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Renal function assessed by calculated GFR at 24 months post-transplant, and incidence of biopsy-proven acute rejection (BPAR) or HDC, graft loss or lost to follow-up

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of BPAR, number of episodes of BPAR per patient, time to first BPAR, incidence of re-transplant, death, rejection including antibody treated rejection, time to graft loss or death, rejection associated with HDC

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
