Background: Most of the previous studies reported that tacrolimus (TAC) with sirolimus (SRL) was associated with worse post-transplant outcomes in kidney transplantation, compared with TAC with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF). These might be attributable to high-dose SRL. However, outcomes using low-dose SRL with TAC for kidney transplantation are uncertain. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of low-dose SRL with extended-release tacrolimus (ER-TAC) versus MMF with ER-TAC.
Methods: We randomly assigned 158 renal transplant patients to receive low-dose SRL or MMF in combination with ER-TAC and corticosteroid. The primary endpoint was the composite efficacy failure rate, including biopsy-proven acute rejection (BPAR), graft loss, death or loss to follow-up, within 12 months post-transplantation. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrial.gov (number NCT01680952).
Results: The efficacy failure rate was 6.6% in the low-dose SRL group and 13.3% in the MMF group in the intention-to-treat population (absolute difference, 6.8%: 95% confidence interval, -2.8% to 16.3%). The incidence of BPAR within 12 months post-transplantation was 5.3% in the low-dose SRL group and 13.3% in the MMF group (P = 0.09). The mean estimated glomerular filtration rate at 12 months post-transplantation was 53.2 mL/min/1.73 m2 in the low-dose SRL group and 52.4 mL/min/1.73 m2 in the MMF group (P = 0.76). The incidences of adverse events and serious adverse events were similar between groups.
Conclusion: Low-dose SRL with ER-TAC was not inferior to MMF with ER-TAC with respect to efficacy and safety. When used for immunosuppression in kidney transplantation, low-dose SRL with ER-TAC can effectively prevent acute rejection and preserve renal function.
