Purpose:

The increase immunosuppression in our transplant population has led to an unacceptable rate of patients at risk for BK virus nephropathy. Reducing induction immunosuppression by switching from Thymoglobulin to Simulect will reduce the incidence of serum positivity for BK by PCR.


Study summary:

Our standard of care has been changed from Thymoglobulin to Simulect and now patients were enrolled in this observational trial to gather data on their outcomes related to BK viremia and rejection rates. Two groups of patients were compared. Retrospective (historical or control) group of subjects: patients who had received a kidney transplant and were inducted with Thymoglobulin prior to study initiation. Prospective group of subjects: patients who is scheduled to receive kidney transplant and will be inducted with Simulect (Basiliximab). Inductions in both groups was/is Standard of Care at a time of treatment.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - De novo transplant - Aged 18-75 Exclusion Criteria: - Serious medical condition which, in the opinion of the Principal Investigator, might interfere with the subject's ability to successfully complete the protocol. - Any medical condition which, in the opinion of the Principal Investigator, might compromise the safety of the subject in participating in the protocol
