Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Equivalence of graft survival at month 12

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Renal function; biopsy-confirmed acute rejection, grade of acute rejection; subject and graft survival; incidence of infection, malignancy, treatment failure, and of chronic rejection as determined by protocol biopsies; quality of life.

Estimated Enrollment: 408

Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2004

Ages Eligible for Study:   13 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • End-stage renal disease, with patients receiving a primary or secondary renal allograft from a cadaveric donor, from a living-unrelated donor, or from a living-related (excluding 0 antigen mismatch) donor.
  • Women who are of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test before sirolimus administration and agree to use a medically acceptable method of contraception throughout the treatment period and for 3 months following discontinuation of sirolimus

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Evidence of active systemic or localized major infection at the time of initial sirolimus administration
  • Evidence of infiltrate, cavitation, or consolidation on chest x-ray obtained during pre-study screening.
