Tacrolimus was beneficial for treatment of myasthenia gravis (MG). And it has a narrow therapeutic range, therefore, therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is essential for tacrolimus to optimize dosage and prevent adverse reactions. However, no studies have explored the influencing factors of tacrolimus blood concentration in MG patients. Thus, we aimed to analyze the influencing factors and discuss how to optimal tacrolimus dosage for MG treatment.

The ratio of the dose that produces toxicity to the dose that produces a clinically desired or effective response.
A 12-KDa tacrolimus binding protein that is found associated with and may modulate the function of calcium release channels. It is a peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase which is inhibited by both tacrolimus (commonly called FK506) and SIROLIMUS.
