Primary Safety Objective: To test the hypothesis that a strategy of monitoring for rejection that introduces AlloSure into clinical practice does not lead to inferior renal allograft outcomes when compared to a strategy of monitoring for rejection that does not include AlloSure. Primary Efficacy Objective: To test the hypothesis that a strategy of monitoring for rejection that introduces non-invasive AlloSure testing as part of clinical care results in a reduction in the number of renal biopsies performed when compared to a strategy of clinical care without the use of AlloSure testing. Secondary Safety Objectives: Include the assessment of other safety endpoints such as graft survival and graft function. Secondary Efficacy Objectives: To confirm AlloSure test performance characteristics in discrimination of active rejection and to describe the impact of AlloSure use and results on patient management.
This is a multicenter, non-blinded, prospective observational cohort study of 1000 patients enrolled in an AlloSure testing registry, including 300 patients at centers with planned renal surveillance biopsies at 12 months post-transplantation. The other 700 patients will be from centers that do not perform protocol surveillance biopsies. This registry study does not provide any medical care. Outcomes in this sub-cohort, which represents the majority of the intended use population in the U.S., will be compared to the outcomes of the test and control cohorts.More
