Study Evaluating Sirolimus and Cyclosporine in Kidney Transplant Recipients
To assess equivalence in the rates of functional graft survival at 12 months after transplantation in patients receiving continuous therapy with cyclosporine (CsA, Sandimmune, Neoral) and sirolimus versus induction with CsA and sirolimus followed by CsA elimination and concentration-controlled sirolimus.
