The Effect of Cold Storage Solutions on Ischemic Injury in Lung Transplantation

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00284726
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : February 1, 2006
Last Update Posted : December 7, 2017
Information provided by:
Johns Hopkins University

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare 2 different cold storage solutions, used to preserve donor lungs for lung transplantation, and their effect on cytokine activation related to ischemic reperfusion injury. Primary endpoint is 30 day survival.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Transplant Recipients Device: Celsior Cold Storage Solution Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The length of ischemic time in harvesting lung allografts is associated with graft survival. It is further thought that ischemic changes in early post-transplantation bronchoscopic biopsies has a direct correlation with later development of chronic rejection.
