Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Cyclosporine Reduction in Kidney Transplant Recipients Receiving Sirolimus
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of different doses of cyclosporine given concomitantly with a fixed dose of sirolimus in kidney transplant recipients.
Condition or disease
Drug: SirolimusDrug: Cyclosporine
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of different doses of cyclosporine given concomitantly with a fixed dose of sirolimus in kidney transplant recipients. Cyclosporine blood levels, graft rejection rates and renal function will be assessed.
A dose response model using the average cyclosporine blood levels correlated to graft rejection rates and renal function will be used to compare efficacy and safety of different doses of cyclosporine.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Safety evaluations will include physical exams, vital signs, CBC with differential, platelet count, blood chemistries, fasting lipid profiles, BUN or urea, serum creatinine, adverse event monitoring and calculated creatinine clearance.
