- Public TitleTransplantLines Food and Nutrition Biobank and Cohort Study (TxL-FN)
- Scientific TitleRenal Sensing of the Acidifying Effect of Sulphur-containing Amino Acids: Consequences for the Relation Between Protein Intake and Blood Pressure in Renal Transplant Recipients
- hypothesisShort-term (1-year) results of renal transplantation are now excellent (over 95%). Long-term (10-year and longer) results are, however, still disappointing. Where most research has focused on immunosuppression and infections, we hypothesize that due to poor homeostatic capacity and necessary use of immunosuppressive and other drugs, renal transplant recipients are much more susceptible to poor dietary habits and exposure to potentially toxic contaminants than people of the general population, and that this contributes to accelerated function loss of the graft and excess risk of premature mortality, both contributing to poor long-term results. This study is a biobank and cohort study which investigates this hypothesis.

- Brief summaryThe baseline measurements of the cohort have been performed between 21-11-2008 and 24-05-2011. In this time, 707 renal transplant recipients and 300 healthy potential living kidney donors have been included. The baseline measurements were complemented with a biobank of serum, plasma and 24h urine samples stored at -80 degrees Centigrade. Included participants are now prospectively followed for development of outcome events.
