Effect of CYP3A5 and ABCB1 Gene Polymorphisms on Tacrolimus Blood Concentration in Renal Transplant Recipients.

Tacrolimus (Tac) is a calcineurin inhibitor (CNI). Its therapeutic range is narrow and pharmacokinetic properties vary among patients. CYP3A5 and MDR1 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the mo...

Tacrolimus: Influence of the Posttransplant Concentration/Dose Ratio on Kidney Graft Function in a Two-Year Follow-Up.

Tacrolimus (TAC) metabolism rate has the potential to impact graft function after kidney transplantation (KTx). We aimed to analyze the relationship between the early post-KTx TAC C/D ratio (blood tro...

Early Tacrolimus Concentrations After Lung Transplant are Predicted by Combined Clinical and Genetic Factors and Associated with Acute Kidney Injury.

Tacrolimus exhibits unpredictable pharmacokinetics after lung transplant, partly explained by CYP-enzyme polymorphisms. However, whether exposure variability during the immediate post-operative period...

Clinically useful limited sampling strategy to estimate area under the concentration-time curve of once-daily tacrolimus in adult Japanese kidney transplant recipients.

An extended-release, once-daily, oral formulation of tacrolimus is currently used after kidney transplantation as a substitute for the conventional twice-daily formulation. The purpose of this study w...

Clinical observation on the effect of Wuzhi soft capsule on FK506 concentration in membranous nephropathy patients.

The current research aimed to investigate the correlation between the effect of Wuzhi soft capsule (WZC) on FK506 concentration and CYP3A5 gene polymorphism in patients with membranous nephropathy (MN...

Clinical Trials [10711 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Pre-transplant Assessment of Tacrolimus Blood Level Concentration, as a Predictor of Tacrolimus Dose Requirements After Kidney Transplantation

The purpose of this study is to evaluate two groups of kidney transplant recipients, to determine the proportion of patients that achieve therapeutic blood concentrations of tacrolimus by ...

TACrolimus in Renal Transplantation: Individualization by Pharmacogenetic

Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice of the chronic renal insufficiency arrived at its final stage. Tacrolimus is an immunosuppressant treatment used for the prevention of epis...

Blood-Bile Ratio Tacrolimus After Liver Transplantation

Tacrolimus is the most widely used immunosuppressive drug in the prevention of rejection after solid organ transplantation. Pharmacokinetic studies in healthy volunteers and in transplante...

Therapeutic Drug Monitoring of Tacrolimus Biliary Concentrations for Liver-transplanted Patients (STABILE)

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the biliary concentration of TCR is a good marker of its immunosuppressive activity.

Impact of P-gp, MRP2, ENT-1 and CNT3 on the Blood Concentration / Intra-PBMC Concentration of Tacrolimus

Prospective and monocentric pharmacokinetic study

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A family of immunophilin proteins that bind to the immunosuppressive drugs TACROLIMUS (also known as FK506) and SIROLIMUS. EC 5.2.1.-

Method for determining the circulating blood volume by introducing a known quantity of foreign substance into the blood and determining its concentration some minutes later when thorough mixing has occurred. From these two values the blood volume can be calculated by dividing the quantity of injected material by its concentration in the blood at the time of uniform mixing. Generally expressed as cubic centimeters or liters per kilogram of body weight.

The urea concentration of the blood stated in terms of nitrogen content. Serum (plasma) urea nitrogen is approximately 12% higher than blood urea nitrogen concentration because of the greater protein content of red blood cells. Increases in blood or serum urea nitrogen are referred to as azotemia and may have prerenal, renal, or postrenal causes. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

A serine threonine kinase that controls a wide range of growth-related cellular processes. The protein is referred to as the target of RAPAMYCIN due to the discovery that TACROLIMUS (commonly known as rapamycin) forms an inhibitory complex with TACROLIMUS BINDING PROTEIN 1A that blocks the action of its enzymatic activity.
