Randomized Trial of Cyclosporine and Tacrolimus Therapy With Steroid Withdrawal in Living-Donor Renal Transplantation

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...

Safety/Efficacy of Induction Agents With Tacrolimus, MMF, and Rapid Steroid Withdrawal in Renal Transplant Recipients

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...

Phase IV Study to Evaluate Calcineurin Inhibitor Reduced, Steroid Free Immunosuppression After Renal Transplantation

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...

A Study Comparing the Withdrawal of Steroids or Tacrolimus in Kidney Transplant Recipients

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...

Effects of Immunosuppression on HCV Recurrence After Living Donor Liver Transplantation - Comparative Study Between Tacrolimus + MMF and Tacrolimus + Steroid

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...

Successful steroid withdrawal guided by surveillance biopsies - a single center experience.

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 in an infant: A case report and review of the literature.

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...

Determination of Tacrolimus Concentration and Protein Expression of P-Glycoprotein in Single Human Renal Core Biopsies.

Tacrolimus is currently the cornerstone of immunosuppressive protocols for renal transplant recipients. Despite therapeutic whole blood monitoring, tacrolimus is associated with nephrotoxicity and it ...

Evaluation of tacrolimus-related CYP3A5 genotyping in China: Results from the First External Quality Assessment Exercise.

Tacrolimus is the most widely used immunosuppressant in solid organ transplant patients. The cytochrome P450 3A5 (CYP3A5) has been proved to be associated with tacrolimus dose requirement. Molecular d...

Topical Tacrolimus 0.03% for Maintenance Therapy in Steroid-Dependent, Recurrent Phlyctenular Keratoconjunctivitis.

To evaluate the efficacy of topical tacrolimus 0.03% as steroid-free maintenance therapy in young patients with severe, recurrent phlyctenular keratoconjunctivitis (PKC).

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.

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.
