University of Cincinnati leads first trial on steroid and CNI withdrawal post-transplant
Date:11/28/2012

kidney transplant patientsthe first FDA-approved drug to replace CNIs like tacrolimus and cyclosporine.

"This trial is a major step forward in immunosuppression because it provides a means to avoid many of the toxicities of the CNI drugs, particularly kidney toxicity, high blood pressure, and hyperlipidemia," says Alloway.

Adele Shields, PhD, associate research professor of surgery with clinical practice at the Christ Hospital, has specialized in quantitating the impact of long-term immunosuppression on cardiac risk factors and cardiac events.

"An important feature of the belatacept-based treatment regimen is that it provides an opportunity to greatly minimize cardiovascular risk in the long term," she says. "By avoiding both CNIs and corticosteroids, this trial provides an opportunity to substantially impact long-term patient survival following kidney transplantation."
