Reporting Groups
  Description
Sequence 1 - Branded Tacrolimus / Generic Tacrolimus In Period 1 (Days 1 - 14) participants received branded tacrolimus (Prograf) orally twice a day and in Period 2 (Days 15 - 28) participants received generic tacrolimus (Sandoz) orally twice a day. Participants received the same stable dosage of tacrolimus they had been taking prior to enrollment (on a milligram for milligram basis).
Sequence 2 - Generic Tacrolimus / Branded Tacrolimus In Period 1 (Days 1-14) participants received generic tacrolimus (Sandoz) orally twice a day and in Period 2 (Days 15-28) participants received branded tacrolimus (Prograf) orally twice a day. Participants received the same stable dosage of tacrolimus dose they had been taking prior to enrollment (on a milligram for milligram basis).

Reporting Groups
  Description
All Participants

Period 1 (Days 1 through 14): Participants randomized to Sequence 1 took branded tacrolimus (Prograf) and participants randomized to Sequence 2 took generic tacrolimus (Sandoz).

Period 2 (Days 15 through 28): Participants randomized to Sequence 1 crossed over to treatment with generic tacrolimus and participants randomized to Sequence 2 crossed over to treatment with branded tacrolimus.
