Objectives. Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has become more widely prescribed in recent years, but its adverse effects on the gastrointestinal system and bone marrow restrict its use in certain settings. The aim of this study was to compare the demogr...

Posttransplant chronic renal failure, secondary to calcineurin inhibitor agents, is emerging as a major problem in liver transplantation. We report a randomized clinical trial comparing daclizumab, delayed low-dose tacrolimus (target trough level...

Studies using tacrolimus and corticosteroids or the combination of cyclosporine, mycophenolate mofetil, and corticosteroids have been shown to reduce the incidence of biopsy-proven acute rejection episodes in cadaveric kidney recipient...

Both tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) are potent immunosuppressive agents used in combination for prevention of acute rejection in renal transplantation. We studied the efficacy and safety of tacrolimus/MMF-based primary immunosuppressio...
