First Posted : September 12, 2005
Last Update Posted : April 27, 2007
- Evaluation of the benefit on renal function of one year of a low dose of ciclosporine versus the usual dose
- To evaluate the immunosuppressive efficacy and tolerance of the treatment
Twelve months for each patient
Study Treatment: Ciclosporine
Group A: low dose >= 130 µg/l < T0 ciclosporinemia < 200 µg/l; Group B: standard dose >= 200 µg/l < T0 ciclosporinemia < 300 µg/l.
One visit every 15 days, for the first three months; then 1 visit every month, for 6 months; and 1 visit at 9 and 12 months.
- Mycophenolate (Cellcept®), 3g a day
- Corticoids, as used for transplanted patients
Randomization: Randomization will occur when it is decided that ciclosporine will be introduced.

|Official Title:||LOW CYCLO: A Multicenter, Prospective, Randomized Study Evaluating the Benefit, on Renal Function, of Two Doses of Ciclosporine: Low Dose Versus Usual Dose, in Association With Mycophenolate and Corticoïds, in de Novo Cardiac Transplant|
|Study Start Date :||March 2004|
- Evolution of renal function, as assessed by the evolution between the two treatment groups at 12 months versus baseline serum creatinine level
- Area under curve of creatinine at 12 months
- Cystatin C level at 1, 2, 3, 6 and 12 months
- Creatinine clearance at 6 and 12 months
- Proteinuria and microalbuminuria at 6 and 12 months
- Secondary outcomes include those linked to the immunosuppressive efficacy and tolerance of the treatment: Difference in appearance incidence of acute graft reject and adverse events
- Myocardial biopsy (International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation [ISHLT] grades)
- Difference in the evolution of left ventricular function and cardiovascular risk factors between the two groups at 6 and 12 months versus baseline: left ventricular ejection fraction and shortening fraction (echocardiogram)
- systolic and diastolic blood pressure
- fasting glycemia, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), triglycerides
