Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine if one drug is superior to another with regard to safety and the preservation of renal function after a kidney transplant.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 500 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Open-Label, Comparative Evaluation of the Safety and Efficacy of Sirolimus Versus Cyclosporine When Combined in a Regimen Containing Basiliximab, Mycophenolate Mofetil, and Corticosteroids in Primary De Novo Renal Allograft Recipients
Study Start Date : June 2005
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2006
Actual Study Completion Date : August 2006

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To demonstrate the superiority of the sirolimus regimen versus cyclosporin A by intent to treat analysis of kidney function at 52 weeks, measured by mean glomerular filtration rate (GFR)
  2. Non-inferiority of the composite of graft loss and death at 52 weeks

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence and severity of rejection at 12, 24, 52, 104, 156, 208 weeks; GFR at 24, 104, 156, 208 weeks; progression of chronic allograft nephropathy or deterioration of transplanted kidney at 52 weeks
  2. quality of life at 24, 52 and 104 weeks
