Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Rochester, Minn.
This is a double-blind, randomized-withdrawal, placebo-controlled study consisting of 2 treatment periods, and a post-treatment Follow-up Period during which retreatment is permitted if needed.
Rochester, Minn., Jacksonville, Fla.
The aims of this study are to identify frailty trajectories and biomarkers of frailty after kidney transplantation. Subjects will be followed beginning immediately prior to kidney transplantation until 1 year after kidney transplantation. Frailty will be prospectively assessed using performance-based measures (Fried criteria and Short Physical Impairment Battery). The relationship between frailty measures and blood levels of promising candidate biomarkers will be analyzed.
Jacksonville, Fla., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Rochester, Minn.
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.
Frailty is a condition characterized by slowness, weakness, low physical activity, wasting, and exhaustion. Frailty increases the risk for adverse outcomes following transplant such as increased length of stay in the hospital, mortality, or graft function. No interventions for frailty are known for patients with renal disease, but exercise programs like pulmonary rehabilitation have been effective in improving frailty in patients with other diseases, such as lung disease. The goal of this study is to test whether exercise will also improve frailty among patients who are waiting for a kidney transplant and who are considered frail or pre-frail.
Hypothesis: we hypothesize that the abundance and functions of Breg subsets in kidney transplant patients could be associated with transplant tolerance and rejection, including DSA-mediated kidney transplant rejection. In addition, oral corticosteroid treatment significantly alters the frequency and function of Breg subsets, which could lead altered clinical outcomes.
Aims, purpose, or objectives:
1. Investigate the frequency Bregs and their ability to express IL-10 along with other immune cells in the context of tolerance/rejection in kidney transplant patients.

2.Investigate the frequency and functions of Bregs along with other immune cells in the setting of long term corticosteroid use.
We hypothesize that oral corticosteroid treatment significantly alters the frequency and function of Breg subsets, which could lead altered clinical outcomes.
Rochester, Minn., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.
The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of parity, menopause and reproductive lifespan on kidney structure and function.
Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the utility of using anti-HLA antibody titer to measure the effectiveness of antibody lowering therapy (i.e., desensitization) in highly-sensitized kidney transplant candidates.
The primary purpose of this study is to implement the Hispanic Kidney Transplant Program (HKTP) at two transplant centers by conducting a needs assessment of barriers and using a “learning collaborative” model to deliver HKTP protocols, scripts, and materials.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy outcomes in renal transplant recipients in whom post-transplant care is managed using AlloSure®. AlloSure® is a non-invasive test to measure donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA). The AlloSure test is intended to assess the probability of allograft rejection in kidney transplant recipients with clinical suspicion of rejection and to inform clinical decision-making regarding the necessity of renal biopsy in such patients at least 2 weeks post-transplant in conjunction with standard clinical assessment. Amendment 1 (A1): Is an observational study to develop and validate the clinical use of KidneyCare®.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of ultrasound elastography in prediction of renal allograft fibrosis.
