belatacept is a selective T-cell co-stimulation blocker that was approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2011 for the prophylaxis of graft rejection in adult kidney transplant recipients. This treatment is indicated as an alternative to Calcineurin Inhibitors (CNIs) for prophylaxis of graft rejection in de novo renal transplant recipients. Long term efficacy and safety outcomes of a kidney transplant population converted to a belatacept regimen after transplant have not been yet reported.
Antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) is one of the leading causes of graft loss in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs). Although it is a well characterized entity, there is limited data regarding effective treatment options for preserving graft functions. Moreover, results from different studies have been contradictory. Therefore, we conducted a study using our registry data to evaluate the effects of a standardized treatment approach consisting of therapeutic plasma exchange (regular plasmapheresis, double filtration plasmapheresis or immunoadsorption), intravenous immunoglobulin and rituximab on KTRs with acute or chronic ABMR.
A main drawback of bone block graft surgery is the resorption occurring in early stages of healing. The aim of this work was investigate different factors associated with graft resorption in allogeneic bone block graft surgery.
This study aims to investigate the preparation of the recipient site prior to autologous fat grafting (AFG) using different methods.
The aim of this study is to assess the effect of new tumescent solution for liposuction containing N-Acetylcysteine (Pietruski solution) on the autologous fat graft volumetric retention used for healthy women breast asymmetry correction by means of lipofilling.
A single-centre triple-blind study looking at the addition of NAC to tumescent solution for liposuction and fat grafting in healthy patient volunteers already undergoing bilateral breast reduction. Three-dimensional reconstructions and volumetric analysis will be performed based on CT scans at 0, 1 and 3 months and then histological analysis will be performed after fat graft explantation at 3 months to determine fat graft vascularity and quality.
This study will test whether selected allogeneic bone marrow derived MSCs are safe by assessing the composite end point Biopsy Proven Acute Rejection (BPAR)/ graft loss at 12 months.
SPLIT-THICKNESS SKIN GRAFT TAKE AND MICROBIOLOGICAL EVALUATION IN BURNED PATIENTS INTRODUCTION: Infection is cause of increased morbidity and mortality in burn patients, and its control is a major challenge also for skin graft integration. Wound and soft tissue infection rates are higher than microbiological diagnosis rates. PURPOSE: To evaluate partial skin graft integration in relation to microbiological analysis of wounds in burn patients. METHODS: This project will be a transversal, prospective, analytical, controlled study in humans, conducted in a single center, at Burn Care Unit of Department of Plastic Surgery at Federal University of São Paulo from October, 2010 to October, 2011. Data will be collected to characterize demographic and clinical aspects. Data analysis will be performed using Student's t-test and Friedman analysis of variance.
