Double-Blind,Double-Dummy,Effic/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.

|Official Title:||Ph3,DB/DD,Multi-Ctr,Pros,Rand Study-Efficacy and Safety of LCP-Tacro™ Tablets, QD, Compared to Prograf® Capsules,BID, in Combination With Mycophenolate Mofetil for Acute Allograft Rejection in De Novo Kidney Transplant|
- 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.
|Study Start Date:||September 2010|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||March 2013|
|Primary Completion Date:||February 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
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 akidney 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.
