Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Study Of The Safety And Efficacy Of Conversion From A CNI To Sirolimus In Renally-Impaired Heart Transplant Recipients
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized Open-Label Study To Compare The Safety And Efficacy Of Conversion From A Calcineurin Inhibitor To Sirolimus Vs Continued Use Of A Calcineurin Inhibitor In Heart Transplant Recipients With Mild-Moderate Impaired Renal Function
Brief SummaryThe primary purpose of this study is to determine whether converting from calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) therapy to sirolimus therapy will be more effective than continuing calcineurin inhibitor therapy with respect to renal function in cardiac transplant recipients with mild to moderate renal dysfunction.
Detailed DescriptionNot Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 4
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Condition  ICMJE
  • Graft Rejection
  • Kidney Failure
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: cyclosporine or tacrolimus
    Cyclosporine and tacrolimus are provided by the sites and dosed to achieve a target trough level determined by the investigator; therefore, form, dosage, and frequency are site and patient specific. Duration should be 52 weeks on-therapy.
    Other Name: Brand names for cyclosporine are Neoral®, Sandimmune®, and Gengraf®; brand names for tacrolimus are Prograf® and Adagraf?.
  • Drug: sirolimus
    Oral (1 and 2 mg) tablets, dosing should be once daily to achieve a target trough level of 7- 15 ng/mL. Duration should be 52 weeks on-therapy.
    Other Name: Rapamune®
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Active Comparator: 1
    Group 1: Continuation of CNI regimen
    Intervention: Drug: cyclosporine or tacrolimus
  • Experimental: 2
    Group 2: (CNI-Free) Conversion to SRL-based regimen
    Intervention: Drug: sirolimus
