Detailed Description:

Delayed graft function (DGF) is generally defined as the need for dialysis during the first 7 days after transplantation although the definition can also include failure to improve preexisting renal function. DGF is an important problem in renal allograft transplantation that affects approximately 25% of transplanted cadaveric kidneys. It has generally been observed that delayed graft function has been associated with reduced graft survival. In addition to an association of DGF with graft loss, DGF imposes an economic burden due to prolonged hospitalization and dialysis. The strongest association with occurrence of DGF is ischemia around the time of transplantation. Aside from approaches to minimize ischemia time and use of antibody induction, there are no good specific therapeutic options to prevent or treat delayed graft function. This study is designed to evaluate the safety and activity of an investigational drug in improving renal function in patients who have undergone renal transplantation and have signs and symptoms of significant renal injury and are at risk for dialysis.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Males and females ≥ 18 years of age
  2. Had renal transplantation due to end stage disease requiring chronic dialysis
  3. Study drug can be administered within 36 hours after transplantation
  4. Received kidney from healthy donor or donor with history of diabetes mellitus or hypertension
  5. Donor terminal serum creatinine ≤ 2.2 mg/dL.
  6. No urine output or < 50 cc/H over a 24 hour period, OR normal urine output following transplantation that diminished to < 50 cc/H over a 24 hour period, OR creatinine reduction ratio 24 hours after transplantation to pre-transplantation is < 30%
  7. Reason for low urine output is unlikely due to structural changes. If clinically indicated, an ultrasound will be performed
  8. Dry weight to< 120kg and BMI <35
  9. Women of child bearing potential have a negative serum pregnancy test prior to transplantation.
  10. Women of child bearing potential (including perimenopausal women who have had a menstrual period within 1 year) must agree to use 2 forms of effective birth control regimen (at least one-barrier method) during the 28-day study period. Men must agree to use condoms during the 28-day study period.
  11. In the opinion of the investigator, the subject is capable of understanding and complying with the protocol.
  12. Subjects must have signed the informed consent document prior to performance of any study related procedure including screening procedure.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject with normal urine output and not requiring dialysis prior to renal transplantation (i.e., had pre-emptive renal transplantation).
