Enteric-coated Mycophenolate Sodium (EC-MPS) With Reduced-dose Tacrolimus Versus EC-MPS With Standard-dose Tacrolimus in Stable Kidney Transplant Recipients

2014-08-27 03:46:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study introduces a new optimization immunosuppressive regimen associating tacrolimus at a reduced dose and enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium at an increased dose in order to slow down renal function worsening and to prevent the progression of chronic allograft nephropathy, while maintaining the same efficacy, in maintenance renal transplant recipients.

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.-

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.

Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A macrolide isolated from the culture broth of a strain of Streptomyces tsukubaensis that has strong immunosuppressive activity in vivo and prevents the activation of T-lymphocytes in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation in vitro.
