ESPRIT Tacrolimus-Specific Resources

Following the introduction of alternative formulations of tacrolimus into the UK, please find below some materials that will help to communicate the potential complications that could result if a patient were inadvertently switched between tacrolimus brands.

Please note that, unlike for ciclosporin, the ESPRIT Group has not produced patient cards, on which patients could record the brand of tacrolimus on which they were stabilised.  This is because two producers of tacrolimus already produce such cards, which should be readily available in transplant units.

Transplant Clinic Poster

Transplant Clinic Poster

A poster for your clinic walls to remind transplant patients of the importance of knowing which brand of tacrolimus they are taking.

Should you have difficulty accessing these materials or require further information, please contact the ESPRIT Group Secretariat at
