The purpose of this study is to understand the pharmacokinetic of sirolimus in different regimens, as well as the dose-level relationship of cyclosporine and tacrolimus, and design the mos...
The purpose of this study is to understand the pharmacokinetics of sirolimus tablets in different regimens in newly renal transplant patients, and the effect of dosage form conversion on t...
In this study the researchers want to investigate genetic polymorphisms of cytochrome 450 enzymes and the multiple drug resistance (MDR) gene in renal transplant patients to look for diffe...
To assess equivalence in the rates of functional graft survival at 12 months after transplantation in patients receiving continuous therapy with cyclosporine (CsA, Sandimmune, Neoral) and ...
The purpose of this study is to compare renal transplant recipients on cyclosporine maintenance therapy vs. those converted to tacrolimus-based immunosuppression with respect to renal outc...
In transplantation medicine calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) still represent the backbone of immunosuppressive therapy. The nephrotoxic potential of the CNI Cyclosporine A (CsA) and Tacrolimus (FK506) is ...
Tacrolimus (TAC) increases the risk of posttransplant diabetes (PTDM) as compared to cyclosporine A (CYC). The present 12-months, multi-center, investigator-driven, prospective, randomized study was d...
This study aimed to analyze adult kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) for the risk of new-onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) associated with viral serologies and immunosuppression regimens [...
Tacrolimus is an immunosuppressive agent well known to be capable of producing renal impairment. Acute renal failure with right heart failure caused by tacrolimus is rarely described. We report the fi...
Tacrolimus is currently the cornerstone of immunosuppressive protocols for renal transplant recipients. Despite therapeutic whole blood monitoring, tacrolimus is associated with nephrotoxicity and it ...
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.
Members of a family of highly conserved proteins which are all cis-trans peptidyl-prolyl isomerases (PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE). They bind the immunosuppressant drugs CYCLOSPORINE; TACROLIMUS and SIROLIMUS. They possess rotamase activity, which is inhibited by the immunosuppressant drugs that bind to them.
A family of immunophilin proteins that bind to the immunosuppressive drugs TACROLIMUS (also known as FK506) and SIROLIMUS. EC 5.2.1.-
A cyclic undecapeptide from an extract of soil fungi. It is a powerful immunosupressant with a specific action on T-lymphocytes. It is used for the prophylaxis of graft rejection in organ and tissue transplantation. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed).
General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
