  Purpose

The study evaluated renal graft function (based on the calculated creatinine clearance) 6 months after kidney transplantation in patients receiving either a regimen of 'reduced-dose' tacrolimus + sirolimus + corticosteroids or a regimen of 'standard-dose' tacrolimus + sirolimus + corticosteroids.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Calculated creatinine clearance at month 6 post transplantation [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Patient and graft survival at 6 months post transplantation; the safety of sirolimus + corticosteroids given concomitantly with reduced or standard dose tacrolimus [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: October 2000
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2001

    The corticosteroids use was left up to the investigators decision.
Detailed Description:

The study evaluated renal graft function (based on the calculated creatinine clearance) 6 months after kidney transplantation in patients receiving either a regimen of 'reduced-dose' tacrolimus + sirolimus + corticosteroids or a regimen of 'standard-dose' tacrolimus + sirolimus + corticosteroids. The two treatment groups were also compared with respect to the incidence of acute graft rejection at 6 months and patient and graft survival at 6 months after transplantation.
