This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||transplant recipient (kidney), steroid-free maintenance immunosuppression, post-transplant infections, thymoglobulin|
|Treatments||steroid-free maintenance immunosuppression, infection after kidney transplantation, evaluation of the dgf nomogram in thymoglobulin|
|Sponsor||University of Minnesota - Clinical and Translational Science Institute|
|Start date||May 2009|
|End date||December 2015|
|Trial size||7500 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01277770, 00011652|
The purpose of this study is to improve outcome for kidney transplant recipients. There has not been commensurate improvement in medium and long-term outcomes. Ongoing clinical research is necessary to improve transplant outcomes.
time frame: 10 year followup
Male or female participants of any age.
- Kidney Transplant Recipient at the University of Minnesota
- Kidney Transplant Recipients on steroid-free maintenance immunosuppression
- Non-kidney transplant patients at the University of Minnesota
|Official title||Studies of Kidney Transplant Outcome|
|Principal investigator||Arthur Matas, MD|
|Description||This study is looking at information already collected of transplant outcomes (short, medium and long-term complications and quality of life). This will specifically look at: 1. 10 year follow-up of steroid-free maintenance immunosuppression 2. A cross-sectional study of infection after kidney transplantation (with emphasis on infection in steroid-free recipients 3. An evaluation of the Delayed Graft Function (DGF) nomogram in Thymoglobulin treated recipients at the University of Minnesota|
