Comparison of tacrolimus blood levels in adults who have received a transplant and are taking either Prograf or Advagraf anti-rejection therapy immediately following surgery. This is followed by checking of safety and effectiveness for one year.
A Phase II, Open Label, Parallel Group, Multi-center Study to Compare the Pharmacokinetics of Tacrolimus in Adult Subjects Undergoing Primary Allograft Transplantation Receiving an Advagraf® or Prograf® Based Immunosuppressive Regimen, Including a Long-term Follow-up
