The purpose of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetics (PK) efficacy and safety of Belatacept in stable pediatric renal transplant recipients.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase 2 Multi-Center, Randomized Conversion Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics, Efficacy, and Safety of Belatacept Administered to Pediatric Subjects With a Stable Renal Transplant

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Time of maximum observed serum concentration (Tmax)

Maximum observed serum concentration (Cmax)

Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time zero extrapolated to infinite time [AUC(INF)]

Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time zero to the time of the last quantifiable concentration [AUC(0-T)]

Half-life (T-HALF)

Total body clearance (CLT)

Volume of distribution at steady-state (Vss)

Steady state trough concentration (Cmin)

Secondary outcome:

Safety will be measured by proportion of subjects reporting Adverse Event (AE), Serious AE, and AE leading to early discontinuation

Antibody titers against Belatacept

CD86 receptor occupancy in Blood samples

Efficacy as measured by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) [calculated by updated Schwartz formula]

Efficacy as measured by change in eGFR

Efficacy as measured by incidence and severity of AR

Efficacy as measured by incidence of death and graft loss


Minimum age: 6 Years. Maximum age: 17 Years. Gender(s): Both.
