Brief Summary:
Single center, open-label randomized-control trial Population: de novo 48 kidney transplant recipients (age 18-75 years) from ECD/AKI donors Compare: everolimus with low dose CNI and prednisolone versus standard immunosuppressive regimen Objective: To evaluate efficacy of everolimus with low dose CNI in de novo kidney transplant recipients of ECD/AKI donors Primary endpoint: Mean eGFR (CKD-EPI) at 12 months post-transplantation

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Transplantation of Kidney Expanded Criteria Donor ECD Drug: Everolimus + low dose cyclosporin A + prednisolone Drug: Standard immunosupressive regimen Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Secondary Endpoints:

  • To assess renal function by means of eGFR (Cockcrault and Gault formula), at -Month 6 and 12 post-transplantation
  • To assess incidence of the individual composite endpoints including BPAR, graft loss and death at Month 6 and 12 post-transplantation
  • To assess the incidence and duration of renal replacement therapy
  • To assess the incidence of chronic allograft nephropathy (IF/TA) at Month 12
  • To assess renal function by means of serum creatinine at Month 6 and 12 post-transplantation
  • To compare the overall safety and tolerability (incidence of AEs and SAEs, infections, discontinuations due to AEs, lab abnormalities, wound and surgical complications) at Month 6 and 12 post-transplantation

Definition of ECD

  • Brain-dead donor > 60 years old or
  • Donor age > 50 years old with two of the following criteria;
  • History of HT
  • Terminal SCr. ≥ 1.5 mg/dL
  • Death from cerebrovascular accident Definition of AKI donor
  • Brain-dead donor with an increase of SCr. ≥ 0.3 mg/dL from baseline
