Abstract
Generic immunosuppressants may offer economic advantages, but their use is still controversial. At our centre, 55 heart-transplant patients were switched from CellCept(®) to Myfenax Teva(®) (MT) (n=51, 18% female, 8.1±6.6 years post-transplantation) and/or Prograf(®) to Tacrolimus Sandoz(®) (TS) (n=17, 41% female, 6.6±5.8 years post-transplantation).
