Brief Summary:
Safety and efficacy study of SANGUINATE on reduction of delayed graft function (DGF) in patients who will be recipients of a donation after brain death (DBD) donor kidney.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Delayed Function of Renal Transplant Drug: SANGUINATE Drug: Normal Saline Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Sixty (60) adult subjects who will be recipients of a donation after brain death (DBD) donor kidney and who meet all eligibility criteria will be randomized 1:1 within 48 hours prior to transplant surgery to receive: two infusions of SANGUINATE at a dose of 320 mg/kg or placebo on the day of surgery and approximately 24 hours after surgery. Patients will be hospitalized for up to 5 days and the study duration will be 30 days.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: SANGUINATE
Two (2) infusions of SANGUINATE
Two (2) infusions of 320 mg/kg of SANGUINATE at Baseline and Day 1
Other Name: pegylated carboxyhemoglobin bovine

Placebo Comparator: Normal Saline
Two (2) infusions of Normal Saline
Drug: Normal Saline
Two (2) infusions of Normal Saline at an equal volume to SANGUINATE at Baseline and Day 1.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Reduction of delayed graft function (DGF) [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Reduction of delayed draft function will be measured by the number of dialysis sessions.

  2. Participants With at Least One Occurrence of Safety Composite Endpoint by Treatment Group. [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Composite endpoint defined by changes in vital signs, electrocardiographic, biochemical, hematological, and urinalysis, graft loss, death and other reported adverse events and Graft Survival - 30 Days

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects requiring dialysis for any reason in the first 7 days post-transplant [ Time Frame: 7 Days ]
  2. Proportion of subjects requiring dialysis only in the first 5 days post-transplant [ Time Frame: 5 Days ]
  3. Number of days of dialysis therapy. [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
  4. Proportion of subjects with a fall in serum creatinine. [ Time Frame: 7 Days ]
  5. Proportion of subjects with a serum creatinine greater than 3 mg/dL, but who did not require dialysis by Day 5 post-transplant [ Time Frame: 5 Days ]
  6. Change in estimated creatinine clearance before and after kidney transplantation. [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
  7. Change in estimated glomerular filtration rate before and after kidney transplantation. [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
