Since 1999, a new immunosuppressive drug was administered to renal transplant patients. The SRL molecule acts by blocking post-receptor signal transduction of interleukin-2 (IL-2) interacting with a family of intracellular binding proteins termed immunophilins FKBPs. Among these FKBPs, FK506 12-kd binding protein is the most relevant. SRL is an immunosuppressive drug. Therefore it can inhibit the immune system; at the same time the drug is not nephrotoxic, neurotoxic, and without diabetogenic effects.

Abstract

Since 1999, a new immunosuppressive drug was administered to renal transplant patients. The SRL molecule acts by blocking post-receptor signal transduction of interleukin-2 (IL-2) interacting with a family of intracellular binding proteins termed immunophilins FKBPs. Among these FKBPs, FK506 12-kd binding protein is the most relevant. SRL is an immunosuppressive drug. Therefore it can inhibit the immune system; at the same time the drug is not nephrotoxic, neurotoxic, and without diabetogenic effects.
