To prospectively evaluate in de novo kidney transplant recipients, hepatitis C positive, the clinical outcomes of an immunosuppressive regimen of EC-MPS free of steroids in comparison with a regimen of EC-MPS with standard steroids, as measured by the hepatic function tests (ALT/AST) after 12 months treatment.

Condition Intervention Phase
De Novo Kidney Transplant Drug: Enteric-coated Mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Twelve-month, Randomized, Multicenter, Open-label, Exploratory Study to Investigate the Clinical Outcomes of an Immunosuppressive Regimen of Basiliximab, Cyclosporine Microemulsion (CsA-ME) and Enteric-coated Mycophenolate Sodium (EC-MPS) Free of Steroids Compared With a Regimen of EC-MPS With Standard Steroids in de Novo Kidney Recipients Who Are Hepatitis C Positive

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hepatic function tests (ALT/AST) after 12 months treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Acumulative incidence of biopsy proven acute rejection after 3 and 12 months.
  • Graft loss, biopsy-proven acute rejection after 3 and 12 months treatment.
  • Glomerular filtration rate and by proteinuria after 12 months treatment.
  • Graft survival after 12 months.
  • Incidence of AEs and SAEs after 3 and 12 months.
  • Blood pressure, lipids and glucose profiles after 3 and 12 months.
  • Percentage of patients free of steroids at 12 months between the two investigational groups.
  • Viral load (HCV RNA) between both groups at 12 months.
  • Bone density at 12 months in both groups.

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: April 2004
Primary Completion Date: August 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All

Inclusion criteria

  1. Patients hepatitis C positive (serology test within the last 12 months and determined by third-generation assay).
  2. Recipients of heart-beating cadaveric, living unrelated or living related non-HLA identical donor kidney transplant, treated with basiliximab and CsA-ME as primary immunosuppression.

Exclusion criteria

  1. Multi-organ recipients (e.g. double kidney, kidney and pancreas or kidney and liver) or previous transplant with any other organ.
  2. Kidneys from non-heart beating donors.
  3. ABO incompatibility against the donor.
  4. Patients with panel reactive antibodies of >50% at most recent assessment prior to transplantation and /or prior graft lost due to immunological reasons in the first six months post-transplantation or patients who are considered to be at increased risk of acute rejection by the principal investigator Additional protocol defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply.
