The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the reduction in incidence and severity of delayed graft function with kidney allografts from donors >45 years after brain death (DBD).

Official Title

A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of QPI-1002 for Prevention of Delayed Graft Function in Recipients of a Donation After Brain Death Older Donor Kidney Transplant


This is a Phase 3 randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multi-center trial stratified by donor age and by region to evaluate the reduction in incidence and severity of delayed graft function with kidney allografts from DBD donors who were at least 45 years of age.

  • Recipient of donor kidney preserved with normothermic machine perfusion.
  • Scheduled to undergo multiorgan transplantation.
  • Has a planned transplant of kidneys that are implanted en bloc (dual kidney transplant).
  • Has planned transplant of dual kidneys (from the same donor) transplanted not en bloc.
  • Has lost first kidney transplant due to graft thrombosis.
  • Is scheduled for transplantation of a kidney from a donor who is known to have received an investigational therapy under another IND/CTA for ischemic/reperfusion injury immediately prior to organ recovery.
  • Is scheduled to receive an ABO-incompatible donor kidney.
  • Has a positive T- or B-cell cross-match by NIH anti-globulin lymphocytotoxicity method or CDC crossmatch method, if performed.
  • Has a positive T- or B-cell flow cross-match AND donor specific anti-HLA antibody (DSA) detected by flow cytometry, Luminex® based antigen-specific anti-HLA antibody testing, or by similar methodology, if performed.
  • Has undergone desensitization to remove donor specific anti-HLA antibodies prior to transplantation.
  • Has participated in an investigational study within the last 30 days or received an investigational product within 5 half-lives of the study drug administration, whichever is longest.
  • Has known allergy to or has participated in a prior study with siRNA.
  • Has a history of HBV (Note: subjects with a serological profile suggestive of clearance, or prior antiviral treatment of a prior HBV infection, may be enrolled with the approval of the Medical Monitor).
  • Has a history of HIV.
  • Recipient of a known HIV positive donor kidney.
  • Is HCV-positive (detectable HCV RNA) (Note: Subjects at least 24 weeks from completion of treatment with an approved antiviral regimen and who remain free of HCV as determined by HCV RNA testing may be enrolled. Subjects who have been cleared of HCV virus after treatment with an unapproved regimen should be approved by the Medical Monitor).
