Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Study Evaluating of Calcineurin Inhibitors Versus Sirolimus in Renal Allograft Recipient
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized, Open-label, Comparative Evaluation of Conversion From Calcineurin Inhibitors to Sirolimus Versus Continued Use of Calcineurin Inhibitors in Renal Allograft Recipient
Brief SummaryThis study will evaluate whether conversion from cyclosporine, a calcineurin inhibitor (CI) to sirolimus (SRL) results in improved long-term renal function without a negative impact on safety or immunosuppressive efficacy, and to further examine the potential of SRL to reduce the severity and/or progression of chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN).
Detailed Description

This open-label, randomized, parallel-group, comparative, outpatient study will be conducted in multiple centers in Taiwan.

The study will randomize approximately 120 patients. 80 patients will be randomized to the SRL therapy group (conversion from CI- to SRL-based immunosuppression: group A) and 40 patients to the CI therapy group (continued CI therapy: group B).

Dosage and Administration

SRL Therapy: At the time of randomization on day 1, each patient will have been receiving:

  • triple therapy with a CI (tacrolimus or CsA) that began at the time of transplantation or within 2 weeks thereafter AND
  • corticosteroids corresponding to a dosage range of 2.5 to 15 mg/day for prednisone or prednisolone (2 to 12 mg/day for methylprednisolone) or the alternate day equivalent for at least 12 weeks before randomization, PLUS
  • either MMF (minimum dose 500 mg/day)/MPS (minimum dose 360 mg/day) or AZA (minimum dose 50 mg/day) for at least 12 weeks before randomization.

SRL will be added to the immunosuppressive regimen for Group A. Group B will continue on this CI immunosuppressive regimen.

Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 4
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Kidney Transplantation
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: Sirolimus+MMF or MPS or AZA+Steroid
    Corticosteroids will be administered according to local practice, within a daily maintenance dosage range of 2.5 to15 mg for prednisone or prednisolone (2 to 12 mg/day for methylprednisolone) or the alternate day equivalent.
  • Drug: Calcineurin Inhibitors (either cyclosporine or tacrolimus)+MMF or MPS or AZA+Steroid

    The maintenance dose of:

    1. MMF will not exceed 1500 mg/day or PMS will not exceed 1080 mg/day
    2. AZA will not exceed 75 mg/day

    Thereafter, at the discretion of the investigator, MMF/MPS or AZA may be:

    1. continued for the entire 104-week period of randomized therapy
    2. subsequently discontinued
    3. restarted after discontinuation
