Additional Information

Official title A Randomized Multicenter Study to Compare Tacrolimus and MMF With Tacrolimus and Rapamycin in Patients After Renal Transplantation
Principal investigator Heiner H. Wolters, Dr. med.
Description Basic randomized clinical trial (multicentre) in primary KTX to assess the safety and efficacy of a tac/rapa vs a tac/MMF regimen. Tac trough levels in accordance with current standards in both arms. Steroids to be used to individual centre protocol. Rapa trough levels will be adjusted to 5-10 ng/ml. Up to now only few data (primate and clinical) on tac/rap combinations available.
