Program Summary

Program Summary

This FOA invites applications from groups of two (2) or more institutions to participate in a clinical studies program to improve the long-term outcome of transplant recipients (thoracic organ, abdominal organ and vascular composite tissue). The Clinical Trials in Organ Transplantation (CTOT) program will support a cooperative, multi-institutional consortium for the conduct of interventional trials (Phase 1, 2, or 3) or observational clinical studies in organ or vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA). Each clinical study must include associated mechanistic studies that focus on immune-mediated pathologic processes in allotransplantation or on mechanisms of immune activation and quiescence.
