  • Immunosuppression Adjustment on COVID-19 Vaccination Response in Kidney Transplant Recipients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Immunocompromised individuals, such as solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients are at high risk of COVID-19 associated complications and mortality. Retrospective studies so far have shown that a majority of SOT recipients did not develop appreciable anti-spike antibody response after a first, second, or even third dose of mRNA vaccine. Treatment with antimetabolites was associated with poor vaccine response. The goal of this study is 1) examine whether transient immunosuppression reduction improves the immune response to a third dose of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccine in kidney transplant recipients and 2) to assess the safety of immunosuppression reduction before and after third dose SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination.

  • High-Dose Moderna mRNA-1273 Booster Study for Lung Transplant Recipients

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Lung transplant recipients have poor outcomes after COVID-19 infection with mortality. Due to the immunosuppression, they have had poor responses to SARS-CoV-2 vaccine and remain at high risk of poor outcomes. This is a Phase I/II clinical trial to evaluate the safety and immune response from a higher dose mRNA-1273 vaccine among lung transplant recipients who have already received three or four doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Tacrolimus/Everolimus vs. Tacrolimus/MMF in Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients Using the MATE Score

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The TEAMMATE Trial will enroll 210 pediatric heart transplant patients from 25 centers at 6 months post-transplant and follow each patient for 2.5 years. Half of the participants will receive everolimus and low-dose tacrolimus and the other half will receive tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil. The trial will determine which treatment is better at reducing the cumulative risk of coronary artery vasculopathy, chronic kidney disease and biopsy proven-acute cellular rejection without an increase in graft loss due to all causes (e.g. infection, PTLD, antibody mediated rejection).
