Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety/tolerability based on adverse events within 6 months after switching patients from MMF to optimized enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety based on renal function within 6 months after medication switch.
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) in a randomized subpopulation.
  • Efficacy measured by the incidence of biopsy-proven acute rejection, graft loss or death within 6 months post medication switch.
  • Efficacy measured by the incidence of biopsy-proven acute rejection 6 months post medication switch.
  • Graft survival and patient survival 6 months post medication switch.

Enrollment: 187
Study Start Date: November 2002
Study Completion Date: April 2005
