Future Studies

There are currently six studies listed on clinicaltrials.gov pending results that are evaluating appropriate dose conversions among the different tacrolimus dosage forms in pediatric patients in order to develop recommendations for switching between these medications. Conversion recommendations supported by the literature would be helpful given the concern for compliance in the adolescent population, and the benefit of a simplified once daily regimen.
