Sirolimus (SIR) has lead to a reduction of overall kidney size, a decrease in cyst density and general tubular cell proliferation in animal models, and to a reduction of the increase in creatinine and blood urea nitrogen by 34 and 39 percent respectively, as well as a reduction of cyst proliferation, expressed by a 30 percent reduction of overall kidney enlargement, a reduction in general cyst volume, and a reduction of the cyst volume density in the renal cortex in humans.
However, despite promising data from animal- and in vivo studies, most mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor (mTOR-I) studies in patients with autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) produced only subtle if any clinically relevant effects on cyst growth and the preservation of renal function.
In this study we will investigate if pulsed administration of SIR in a fixed weekly oral dose of 3 mg over 24 months compared to placebo significantly reduces cyst growth and preserves excretory renal function in patients with ADPKD and an estimated glomerular filtration (eGFR) rate below 60 mL/min per 1.73m2.

Fixed oral dose of 3 mg sirolimus (blinded) once weekly for 24 months.
Other Name: Rapamune
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Fixed oral dose of placebo (blinded) once weekly for 24 months.
Fixed oral dose of 3 mg placebo (blinded) once weekly for 24 months.
- Change in kidney function from baseline to month 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, 24 months ]Fifty percent reduction in doubling of serum creatinine, or initiation of dialysis over a period of two years. Less or equal than 1.5 fold increase in serum creatinine without initiation of dialysis over two years is considered a beneficial outcome, increases in serum creatinine greater than 1.5 over two years or initiation of dialysis are considered a non-beneficial outcome.
- Change of safety parameters from baseline to month 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, 24 months ]Safety, change in proteinuria, as indicated by albumin/creatinine- and protein/creatinine ratio, respectively.
