  Purpose

New onset diabetes mellitus (NODM) post- transplantation decreases patient and graft survival. Some immunosuppressive agents are associated with a higher incidence of NODM. This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of converting patients with NODM from tacrolimus to cyclosporine micro-emulsion as a primary immunosuppressant for kidney and liver recipients.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety assessed by death, graft loss, biopsy supported clinically manifested acute rejection, change in kidney function, change in liver function, serious adverse events and adverse events at 12 and 26 weeks
