The aim of this project is to determine whether, in liver transplant patients with side effects due to ICN, the use of MMF in monotherapy can be optimised by dose adjustment based on the area under the curve (AUC) of mycophenolic acid (MPA). It involves a multicentre phase IV trial with direct individual benefit.
A population of 130 liver transplant patients at 2 to 10 years post-transplant, showing significant clinical ICN side effects and being given bitherapy by ICN +MMF will be included and randomised 1:1 in two arms:
- Arm 1: progressive interruption of ICN after obtaining an AUC of MPA of 50 mg.h/l, followed by MMF monotherapy with dose adjustment based on the AUC of MPA,
- Arm 2: continuation of the ICN+MMF bitherapy without MMF therapeutic drug monitoring.
The main judgement criterion will be the incidence of acute rejection in the 2 groups at 6 months. The secondary judgment criterion will be the evaluation of the benefit of stopping ICN on the side effects caused by these drugs.

This study investigates the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of tacrolimus using the once-daily (OD) formulation in the early stage after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) in comparison w...
Tacrolimus, a major immunosuppressant used after transplantation, is associated with large interindividual variation involving genetic polymorphisms in metabolic processes. A common variant of the cyt...
Tacrolimus, a critical dose drug, is widely used in transplantation. Knowing the contribution of genetic factors, which significantly influence tacrolimus variability, is beneficial in the personaliza...
Early trials of tacrolimus in renal transplant recipients have not revealed hearing loss as an adverse effect. Here, we present a case report and a review of the literature of deafness after tacrolimu...
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.-
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.
Conditions in which the LIVER functions fall below the normal ranges. Severe hepatic insufficiency may cause LIVER FAILURE or DEATH. Treatment may include LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
