INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to analyse the influence of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetic parameters (PK) of mycophenolic acid (MPA) and its glucuronide metabolite (MPAG) in renal transplant recipients. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 43 adult patients during the maintenance period (> 6 months) following renal transplantation,(More)
INTRODUCTION Plasma antioxidant vitamins (retinol, α-tocopherol, β-carotene) were measured to establish the influence of clinical condition and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) treatment on the nutritional status of renal transplant recipients. MATERIAL AND METHODS In 106 adult patients plasma vitamins were measured and 24-h diet history questionnaires were(More)
The proper concentrations of plasma bioelements may favorably reduce the incidence of metabolic disorders, which often occur during immunosuppressive therapy. Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is currently one of the most frequently administered immunosuppressive agents; however, MMF treatment is often related to gastrointestinal side effects. The aim of this(More)
We assessed the relations between MPA, free MPA (fMPA) and MPA glucuronide (MPAG) pharmacokinetics and the clinical condition of renal transplant recipients treated with EC-MPS and tacrolimus (Tac) in the first post-transplant year. In 18 adult patients blood samples were collected up to 12 h after EC-MPS oral administration. EC-MPS metabolites’ plasma(More)
