Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Deoxyspergualin, Treatment, Drug: Deoxyspergualin
100mg/vial as active substance; Deoxyspergualin at 3-5 mg/kg/day by 1-3 iv infusion will be given once a day for 5 to 7 days each cycle every month; Total cycle treatment will be 6.
Other Name: Spanidin, gusperimus hydrochloride

Detailed Description:

The primary aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of deoxyspergualin after the completion of 6 cycles treatment. The efficacy valuables are histological findings in renal grafts, renal function, proteinuria, graft survival, anti-HLA antibody. The safety data are also evaluated in the study.
