Further study details as provided by University Hospital Muenster:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • - time to first biopsy proven acute rejection episode at month 12
  • - graft failure at month 12
  • - discontinuation of study medication at month 12

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • - patient and graft survival at month 12
  • - incidence and severity of biopsy proven acute rejection episodes and incidence of steroid-resistant acute rejection episodes at month 12
  • - Renal function at month 12 (S-creatinine, Cockgroft-Gault clearance)
  • - incidence and severity of infections at month 12
  • - incidence of adverse events at month 12

Estimated Enrollment: 190
Study Start Date: January 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2005
Detailed Description:

Basic randomized clinical trial (multicentre) in primary KTX to assess the safety and efficacy of a tac/rapa vs a tac/MMF regimen. Tac trough levels in accordance with current standards in both arms. Steroids to be used to individual centre protocol. Rapa trough levels will be adjusted to 5-10 ng/ml. Up to now only few data (primate and clinical) on tac/rap combinations available.
