Primary Outcome Measures:
  • AUC0-24 (Area under the curve for 24 hours) of tacrolimus plasma concentration [ Time Frame: Day 6 and day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax (maximum concentration) of tacrolimus plasma concentration [ Time Frame: Day 6 and day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of the composite event: graft loss (defined as re-transplantation or death) or biopsy confirmed acute rejection (BCAR) [ Time Frame: up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to first incidence of the composite event: graft loss (defined as re-transplantation or death) or biopsy confirmed acute rejection (BCAR) [ Time Frame: up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety assessed by the incidence of adverse events and lab-tests [ Time Frame: up to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • subject receiving a primary, partial liver graft from a living donor
  • subject must receive the first dose of tacrolimus and corticosteroids after operation and are expected to be maintained on tacrolimus throughout the study. MMF could be combined

Exclusion Criteria:

  • subjects receiving a multi-organ transplant or having previously received an organ transplant (including liver re-transplantation)
  • subjects receiving an auxiliary graft or in whom a bio-artificial liver (cell system) has been used
  • subjects allergic or intolerant to macrolide antibiotics or tacrolimus
  • subjects requiring immunosuppressive treatment and / or systemic chemotherapy prior to transplantation
  • subjects with malignancies or a history of malignancy within the last 5 years, with the exception of those with basalioma or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin
  • subjects with systemic infection requiring treatment, except viral hepatitis
  • subjects with severe diarrhoea, vomiting, active peptic ulcer or gastrointestinal disorder that may affect the absorption of tacrolimus
  • subjects with serum creatinine > 1.5mg/dl
  • subjects taking or having taken potassium preserved diuretics
  • subjects with any form of substance abuse, psychiatric disorder or condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, may complicate communication with the investigator
