The aim of the study is to assess the short-term benefit of the combination of basiliximab, EC-MPS and cyclosporine microemulsion with C2 monitoring on the prophylaxis of acute rejection in a population of de novo renal transplant patients at potential high risk of DGF.
Drug: Enteric-Coated Mycophenolate Sodium (EC-MPS)
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
||A 3 Month, Multicenter, Open-label Study to Evaluate the Impact of the Immunosuppressive Combination of Enteric-Coated Mycophenolate Sodium (EC- MPS), Basiliximab and Cyclosporine for Microemulsion With C2 Monitoring, on Efficacy and Safety Outcomes in de Novo Kidney Transplant Recipients at Potential High Risk of DGF.
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Incidence of first episodes of BPAR at month 3 post transplant
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Incidence of patients death at month 3 post transplant.
- Incidence of graft loss or, synonymously, graft failure)
- The allograft will defined as lost (or: to have failed)
- when the patient begins dialysis treatments without
- subsequent graft recovery.
- The time of graft failure will be defined as the time of start of dialysis, or time of nephrectomy, whatever occurs first.
- Number of myfortic dose adjustments/discontinuations
