The use of steroids after kidney transplantation has been challenged because of variable adverse effects which may increase the patient morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was t...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of different induction agents (alemtuzumab, basiliximab or rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin) in renal transplant recipients tr...
Current practice of immune suppressive standard therapy after renal transplantation in non-risk patients is a triple therapy consisting of steroids, a calcineurin inhibitor and MMF. The a...
This study evaluates two different immunosuppression drug regimens in patients with a recent kidney transplant. Patients initially received a regimen of Sirolimus, Tacrolimus and Predniso...
The aim of this study is to compare immunosuppression protocol of tacrolimus + MMF with that of tacrolimus + steroid for preventing recurrence of hepatitis C after living donor liver trans...
Steroid withdrawal following renal transplantation is challenging and widely debated. This retrospective study aimed at investigating the frequency and determinants of successful steroid withdrawal gu...
Pyoderma gangrenosum is a neutrophilic dermatosis that is rare in infancy, with only 20 cases reported in the literature. We present a case of infantile pyoderma gangrenosum refractory to topical ster...
Tacrolimus is currently the cornerstone of immunosuppressive protocols for renal transplant recipients. Despite therapeutic whole blood monitoring, tacrolimus is associated with nephrotoxicity and it ...
To evaluate the efficacy of topical tacrolimus 0.03% as steroid-free maintenance therapy in young patients with severe, recurrent phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis (PKC).
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 an...
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.
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.
Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation. The concept includes withdrawal from smoking or drinking, as well as withdrawal from an administered drug.
