    Is tacrolimus more likely to induce diabetes mellitus than ciclosporin in heart transplant patients?

    Anisha Jagpal, Sudeep Das De, Sanjeet Singh Avtaar Singh, Alan Kirk

    Aim: Immunosuppression has evolved since the first successful orthotopic heart transplant 50 years ago. Currently, calcineurin inhibitors lie at the focal point of the immunosuppressive regimen. However, these drugs exhibit a variety of side effects, including hyperglycaemia. This in turn... Read more
