Belatacept in obese kidney transplant recipients

Lead Investigator: Nicholas Lange, Columbia University
Title of Proposal Research: Belatacept in obese kidney transplant recipients
Vivli Data Request: 6860

Potential Conflicts of Interest: None

Summary of the Proposed Research:

Belatacept is a safe and effective option for immunosuppression in kidney transplant recipients. Belatacept is dosed based on patients’ actual body weight at the time of transplantation. To date, there has not been a rigorous evaluation on the impact of obesity among kidney transplant recipients receiving belatacept-based immunosuppression. The objective of this study is to evaluate outcomes after transplantation among obese versus non-obese kidney transplant recipients being treated with belatacept.
