Generic Immunosuppressants in Transplantation

The objective of this educational series is to offer an update on the current issues and practical experiences in the use of generic immunosuppressants in transplantation, as well as the possible recommendations to increase higher uptake. The educational series will be produced in a structured format intended for healthcare practitioners, including transplantation specialists, transplantation pharmacists, and regulators.

Topics cover perspectives on the ESOT (European Society for Organ Transplantation) recommendations on generic immunosuppressive drugs in transplantation, bioequivalence and comparability issues, and practical aspects when using generic immunosuppressants for patients in transplant, with science-based information.
