Among the adverse effects of different calcineurin inhibitors (CIs), nephrotoxicity is the most common (incidence: 18.1% at 13 y from liver transplantation) and depends on a variable degree of tubular-interstitial injury accompanied by focal glomerular sclerosis. A new immunosuppressive drug was introduced in solid organ transplant management, Sirolimus (SRL). It is a nonnephrotoxic immunosuppressor.

Abstract

Among the adverse effects of different calcineurin inhibitors (CIs), nephrotoxicity is the most common (incidence: 18.1% at 13 y from liver transplantation) and depends on a variable degree of tubular-interstitial injury accompanied by focal glomerular sclerosis. A new immunosuppressive drug was introduced in solid organ transplant management, Sirolimus (SRL). It is a nonnephrotoxic immunosuppressor.
