Trial to Evaluate the Sirolimus-Eluting Collagen Implant on AV Fistula Outcomes (ACCESS)

Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety outcomes following use of the Sirolimus-eluting Collagen Implant (SeCI) in subjects undergoing surgical creation of an AV fistula for vascular access (index procedure). Following successful creation of the AV fistula, the cohort randomized to the treatment group will receive the SeCI; the control group will not receive an implant. The primary hypothesis is that the proportion of subjects that meet requirements for fistula suitability for dialysis six months following the index procedure will be higher in the treatment group in comparison to the control group.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment Group
AV fistula surgery with investigational product (Sirolimus-eluting Collagen Implant)
Drug: Sirolimus
Subjects in the treatment group will receive a single prophylactic dose of sirolimus delivered locally to the vessel wall at and around the site of the anastomosis of an AV fistula, immediately following completion of a successful AV fistula surgery. Control group subjects will have surgery for creation of the AV fistula but will not receive the drug.
Other Name: Rapamycin

No Intervention: Control Group
AV fistula surgery without investigational product

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fistula Suitability for Dialysis at 6 Months (FSD6) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    For subjects who are on hemodialysis by day 150, suitability for dialysis will be determined by the ability to use the fistula for dialysis using 2-needles with a mean dialysis machine blood pump speed of ≥300 mL/min for two-thirds of the dialysis sessions during a 30 day suitability ascertainment period that begins 150 days after fistula creation.

    For subjects who are not on hemodialysis on day of enrollment and who do not initiate hemodialysis by day 150, suitability for dialysis will be determined by a vascular ultrasound performed at the 6 month follow up visit. Suitability for dialysis will be defined as a fistula with an access vein diameter (AVD) of ≥6 mm (internal diameter) and an access blood flow of ≥500 mL/min.
