To assess equivalence in the rates of functional graft survival at 12 months after
transplantation in patients receiving continuous therapy with cyclosporine (CsA, Sandimmune,
Neoral) and sirolimus versus induction with CsA and sirolimus followed by CsA elimination and
Official title: A Randomized, Open-Label Study of Continuous Therapy With Cyclosporine and Sirolimus Versus Induction With Cyclosporine and Sirolimus Followed by Continuous Therapy With Sirolimus in Renal Allograft Recipients
Study design: Prevention, Randomized, Open Label, Active Control, Parallel Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study
Primary outcome: Equivalence of graft survival at month 12
Secondary outcome: Renal function; biopsy-confirmed acute rejection, grade of acute rejection; subject and graft survival; incidence of infection, malignancy, treatment failure, and of chronic rejection as determined by protocol biopsies; quality of life.
Minimum age: 13 Years.
Maximum age: N/A.
- End-stage renal disease, with patients receiving a primary or secondary renal
allograft from a cadaveric donor, from a living-unrelated donor, or from a
living-related (excluding 0 antigen mismatch) donor.

sirolimus administration and agree to use a medically acceptable method of
contraception throughout the treatment period and for 3 months following
discontinuation of sirolimus
