BACKGROUND The need for better immunosuppressive protocols after lung transplantation led us to investigate tacrolimus (Tac) in combination with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and steroids or cyclosporine (CsA) in combination with MMF and steroids in a prospective, open, randomized trial after lung transplantation. METHODS Between September 1997 and April 1999, 50 lung transplant recipients were randomized to receive either Tac (n = 26) or CsA (n = 24) in combination with MMF and steroids.
