Primary Outcome Measures:
  • graft survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: June 2000
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
pt will switch from calcineurin inhibitor (CYA, prgraf) to Rapamycin
Drug: Rapamycin
Rapamycin will start within 24 hours of last calcineurin inhibitors (Cya, Prgraf). Initial dose of Rapamune 10mg will be given for 3 days and then dose will be adjusted to attain a target whole blood trough of 5-15
Other Name: Sirolimus
No Intervention: 2
Patient will remain on calcineruin inhibitor

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   12 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient is the recipient of a cadaveric or living donor renal transplant.
  2. Patient was > 12 years of age at the time of transplant.
  3. Patient is at least 3 months post-transplant.
  4. Patient has been on a calcineurin inhibitor based immunosuppression since the transplant.
  5. Patient has one of the following risk factors for chronic renal allograft failure:

    I. Serum creatinine > 2.0 mg/dL 3 months or later post-transplant in males patients.

    II. Serum creatinine > 1.7 mg/dL 3 months or later post-transplant in female patients.

    III. Serum > 30% increased over post discharge nadir.

  6. Patients had a renal biopsy that shows chronic allograft nephropathy.
  7. Patient or legal guardian had signed and dated an IRB approved informed consent document and is willing and able to follow study procedures.
  8. If female and of child bearing potential, patient has a negative pregnancy test and agrees to practice effective birth control while receiving mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), Rapamycin and other immunosuppressants.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient is the recipient of a solid organ transplant other than the kidney.
  2. Patient is dialysis dependent.
  3. Patient has recurrence of primary renal disease, or de novo renal disease.
  4. Patient has an estimated creatinine clearance <25ml/min calculated using the Crockcroft/Gault formula.
  5. Patient has changed maintenance immunosuppressant therapy (e.g., azathioprine to MMF) within three months of randomization.
  6. Baseline biopsy shows acute rejection Banff Grade > IIB.
  7. Patient required anti-lymphocyte therapy to treat rejection found on baseline biopsy.
  8. Patient has received an investigational immunosuppressant within three months.
  9. Patient is pregnant or lactating.
  10. Patient is a known carrier of any of the HIV viruses.
  11. Patient has known hypersensitivity to Rapamycin, or any of the excipients of the drug.
