Kidney Transplant clinical trials at UCSD
4 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • HOPE in Action Prospective Multicenter, Clinical Trial of Deceased HIVD+ Kidney Transplants for HIV+ Recipients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The primary objective of this study is to determine if an HIV-infected deceased kidney donor (HIVD+) transplant is safe with regards to major transplant-related and HIV-related complications.

  • Prospective Pilot Feasibility Study Comparing Envarsus Once-a-day to Tacrolimus Twice-a-day Immunosuppressive Regimen on Drug Bioavailability in Hispanic First Time Kidney Transplant Recipients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This investigator-initiated post-marketing study will evaluate the role of Hispanic ethnicity on drug dosing of Envarsus in first-time stable renal transplant recipients. Tacrolimus trough drug levels will be studied as a primary endpoint at 24 hours after drug dosing and at steady state (e.g., trough level at 3 months post conversion) and secondary compliance assessments will be done by pill counts at clinic visits. Secondary outcomes will be the safety of once a day dosing as well as assessment of graft rejection and graft failure. In addition, concentration/dose ratios will be analyzed. The results of this study will provide important information about dosing of once a day tacrolimus (Envarsus) in Hispanic kidney transplant patients, which represents the largest growing group of patients with End-Stage Renal Disease

  • Cellular Immunotherapy in Recipients of HLA-matched, Living Donor Kidney Transplants

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of cellular immunotherapy with MDR-101 for induction of functional immune tolerance in recipients of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched, living donor kidney transplants.

  • Drug Interaction With Envarsus XR and Grapefruit Juice

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Transplant patients must take lifelong immunosuppression in order to prevent rejection of their organ. Tacrolimus is the most widely used immnosuppressive agent. Part of the routine education given to patients regarding tacrolimus is that they must avoid many drugs and substances that can interact with tacrolimus so that they don't experience side effects or lack of effect. Patients are told they must avoid readily available substances such as grapefruit juice and St. John's wort. A new once daily formulation of tacrolimus, Envarsus XR, may bypass the place in the gut in which many of these drug interactions occur. We will give kidney transplant patients Envarsus with and without grapefruit juice and measure the effect on blood levels throughout the day. Results from this study will also give us information about the likelihood of other drugs interacting with Envarsus XR.
