Double-Blind,Double-Dummy,Efficacy/Safety,LCP-Tacro™ Vs Prograf®,Prevention Rejection,De Novo Adult Kidney Tx (LCPTacro3002)
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of LCP-Tacro (tacrolimus) Tablets administered once-a-day compared to Prograf (tacrolimus) Capsules twice-a-day as immunosuppression for the prevention of organ rejection in newly transplanted adult kidney transplant recipients. Patients will be treated for a 12 month study period followed by a 12 month, blinded extension treatment period To show that LCP-Tacro Tablets are clinically similar to Prograf Capsules in the prevention of acute rejection.

- The Primary Efficacy Endpoint for the Study is the Proportion of Treatment Failures Within 12 Months After Randomization to Study Drug. [ Time Frame: 360 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Treatment failure is a composite endpoint; a patient is considered a treatment failure if the patient experienced any of the following events during this period: death, graft failure, BPAR (Banff grade ≥1A) or lost to follow-up.
- For the 24-month Analysis, the Endpoint Includes Additional Treatment Failures That Occurred During the 12-month Treatment Extension Period, up to Day 734 After the Randomization Date. [ Time Frame: 734 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Treatment failure is a composite endpoint; a patient is considered a treatment failure if the patient experienced any of the following events during this period (day 1 to day 734): death, graft failure, BPAR (Banff grade ≥1A) or lost to follow-up.

The initial dose of 0.17 mg/kg will be administered orally in the morning (before noon) within 24 hours following transplantation. Subsequent doses will be adjusted according to whole blood tacrolimus trough levels.
Tacrolimus, once-per-day The initial dose of 0.17 mg/kg will be administered orally in the morning (before noon) within 24 hours following transplantation. Subsequent doses will be adjusted according to whole blood tacrolimus trough levels.
Other Name: Tacrolimus modifed-release
Experimental: Prograf (tacrolimus)
Starting total daily dose of 0.10 mg/kg administered in two equally divided doses, morning and evening, per product labeling. Doses will be adjusted according to whole blood tacrolimus trough levels. In the initial post-transplant period, plasma trough levels will be measured at 24 and 48 hours. Study drugs will be adjusted to maintain the whole blood pre-dose (trough) concentration of tacrolimus in the target range of 6 - 11 ng/mL for the first 30 days, then 4 - 11 ng/mL for the remainder of the study.
Drug: Prograf (tacrolimus)
Administered per current product labeling
Other Name: tacrolimus
This is a two-armed parallel group, prospective, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy,multicenter Phase 3 clinical study to establish the efficacy and safety of LCP-Tacro Tablets (tacrolimus, LifeCycle Pharma A/S, Hørsholm, Denmark) once daily for the prevention of allograft rejection in de novo adult male and female recipients of a primary or secondary kidney transplant evaluated by a combined efficacy endpoint comprised of acute rejection, graft loss and patient loss. The trial is designed to determine if the test drug, LCP-Tacro, is not inferior to an unacceptable extent to the reference compound, Prograf. Recipients of a kidney transplant who sign an informed consent form and fulfill all other inclusion and exclusion criteria will be randomly assigned to once-daily therapy with LCP-Tacro Tablets or to twice-daily therapy with Prograf Capsules (tacrolimus, Astellas Pharma US, Inc., Deerfield, IL), each concomitantly administered with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and corticosteroids. All patients will also receive interleukin-2 (IL-2) receptor antagonist (e.g.,Simulect®, basiliximab; Novartis Pharmaceuticals, East Hanover, NJ). Following screening,transplantation, and randomization, study visits will be conducted over a 12-month treatment period; with additional visits during a 12 month extension period on treatment and a follow-up safety assessment by visit or telephone interview 30 days after withdrawal from study drug.
