In this paper we investigated the effects of several drugs used in transplant medicine, i.e. cyclosporine A, tacrolimus, rapamycin, everolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, fluvastatin and rosuvastatin, on the expression of major drug-metabolizing enzymes in human hepatocytes. Moreover, we tested the ability

We report on 27 patients with Down syndrome (DS) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who received allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) between 2000 and 2009. Seventy-eight percent of patients received myeloablative conditioning and 52% underwent transplantation in second remission. Disease-free

Nephrology (Carlton, Vic.), 20 Suppl 2, 51-57 (2015-06-03)
Calcineurin inhibitors reduce the acute rejection rate and greatly improve renal allograft survival. However, they are associated with some adverse events, including nephrotoxicity, a risk factor for allograft failure. Chronic calcineurin inhibitor-induced nephrotoxicity causes irreversible damage to renal components, such

Blood, 125(7), 1189-1197 (2014-12-19)
We hypothesized that the compatibility of each HLA loci between donor and patient induced divergent transplant-related immunologic responses, which attributed to the individualized manifestation of clinical outcomes. Here, we analyzed 7898 Japanese pairs transplanted with T-cell-replete marrow from an unrelated

Although calcineurin inhibitors (CNIs) with short-term methotrexate (stMTX) constitute standard prophylaxis for graft-versus-host diseases (GVHD) in hematopoietic stem cell transplantations (HSCT), comparative efficacy of cyclosporine A (CsA) and tacrolimus (Tac) still remains unclear. We have altered GVHD prophylaxis for standard-risk

Emerging data suggest that the combination of tacrolimus and the CCR5 antagonist maraviroc, both cytochrome P450-3A4 substrates, may be effective in preventing graft-versus-host disease in patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT. This study evaluated whether a pharmacokinetic interaction exists between these agents.

In heart transplantation, antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) is diagnosed and graded on the basis of immunopathologic (C4d-CD68) and histopathologic criteria found on endomyocardial biopsies (EMB). Because some pathologic AMR (pAMR) grades may be associated with clinical AMR, and because humoral responses

In simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPKT), monitoring of the pancreas allograft is more complex than the kidney allograft due to difficulties in obtaining pancreas histology and weak clinical evidence supporting the role of donor-specific antibodies (DSA). We performed a single-center retrospective

Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors are the main immunosuppressive drugs for organ transplant recipients. Nevertheless, the mechanisms by which mTOR inhibitors induce immunosuppression is not fully understood. Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) maintain host immunity; however, the relationship between mTOR
