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.
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.
