The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   37978   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6230   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Does treating the recipients of deceased donor kidneys with heme-arginate (HA) increase the amount of HO-1 protein in the recipient’s white blood cells compared to placebo treatment?
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Does treating the recipients of deceased donor kidneys with heme-arginate (HA) increase the amount of HO-1 mRNA in the recipient’s white blood cells compared to placebo treatment at 24 hours?

    How does the recipient's white blood cell HO-1 mRNA and protein expression change over the 5 days after HA/placebo injection?

    Does treating the recipients of deceased donor kidneys with heme-arginate (HA) increase HO-1 protein expression in the transplanted kidney at day 5 compared to placebo treatment?

    Does HA improve outcome after transplantation by preventing delayed graft function compared to placebo?

    Does HA treatment reduce histological injury in the transplanted kidney compared to placebo treatment?

    Can we predict the amount of injury a transplanted kidney has sustained by measuring biological markers in the urine?

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    All patients receiving a single kidney deceased donor transplant.
    All patients receiving standard immunosuppression.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients unable to receive the standard immunosuppressive regimen
    Patients unable to give informed consent
    Patients with known hypersensitivity reactions to HA
    Patients receiving more than one organ
    Patients receiving their 3rd or subsequent kidney transplant
    Patients who are fully anticoagulated pre-operatively
    Patients on combined anti-platelet agents
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome measure is the difference in HO-1 protein expression in the recipient monocyte/macrophages between pre-infusion and 24 hours post-infusion levels as measured by Western Blot comparing Heme-arginate (HA) with placebo.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Blood test at 24 hours after HA infusion. We are allowing an eight hour window (20-28 hours post-infusion)for this blood test.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The difference in levels of HO-1 mRNA as measured by PCR in the recipient monocytes/macrophages between the pre-infusion sample and the 24 hours post-infusion samples comparing HA vs. placebo.

    The difference in levels of HO-1 expression in the transplanted kidney as determined by immunohistochemical analysis between the pre-operative biopsy sample and the day 5 biopsy sample in participants who have received HA vs. those that have received placebo.

    The difference in histological injury in the transplanted kidney as determined by the Pathologist between the pre-operative sample and the day 5 sample comparing HA to placebo.

    The difference in incidence of delayed graft function in participants who received HA compared to placebo.

    We will determine whether the level of urinary biomarkers in post-transplant urine samples by ELISA has a relationship with with poor renal function in transplant recipients as determined by the incidence of delayed graft function.

    The pattern of the change in recipient's white blood cell HO-1 mRNA and protein expression over the 5 days of the study for both HA treatment group and placebo treatment group.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The HO-1 mRNA induction in monocytes is measured at 24 hours post infusion (blood sample window of 20-28 hours).

    HO-1 induction in renal tissue and histological renal injury is measured at 5 days post transplant.

    Delayed graft function is assessed from the results of daily routine blood tests from day 1 to day 7 post transplant.

    Urinary biomarkers will be measured daily from day 1-5 when the participant starts producing urine.

    The pattern of the monocyte HO-1 expression will be evaluated from samples taken pre-operatively and on days 1-5 post-op.
