Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary composite endpoint is the Week 9 post-transplantation treatment failure rate defined as the occurrence of 1) biopsy-proven AMR, 2) graft loss, 3) patient death, or 4) loss to follow-up. The diagnosis of AMR will be based on kidney allograft [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary analysis of all endpoints will occur after all patients have reached Month 12 post-transplantation.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male or female patients ≥18 years old
  2. Patients with Stage IV or Stage V chronic kidney disease who will receive a kidney transplant from a living donor to whom they are sensitized and require desensitization prior to transplantation
  3. Able to understand the informed consent form and willing to comply with study procedures

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Hypersensitivity to eculizumab, to murine proteins or to one of the excipients
  2. Any medical condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, might interfere with the patient's participation in the study, poses an added risk for the patient, or confounds the assessment of the patient
