The purpose

Primary end-point The primary end-point was the influence of pharmaceutical intervention in tacrolimus intra-subject variability during the first 3 months after kidney transplant. Coefficients of variation were calculated from the average of dose-corrected tacrolimus blood concentration(CV= Standard Deviation (SD) x 100/mean) of study visits day 10, 14, 21, 30, 60 and 90 post kidney transplant. Secondary end-points 1. Secondary outcomes included evaluate percentage of patients who achieved target levels of tacrolimus in day study visits 7, 10, 14, 21, 28, 60 e 90 days after kidney transplant; 2. Tacrolimus bioavailability profile during the period of 3 months,characterized by mean and standard deviation (SD) of dose corrected tacrolimus blood concentration(ng/ml/mg); 3. Assess patient adherence through validated questionnaire "Portuguese version of Basel Scale Adherence Rating Immunosuppressive Drugs (BAASIS) scale". It consists of a four-item questionnaire measuring nonadherence to immunosuppressives over the past four weeks. This questionnaire assesses omission of single doses or successive doses, timing deviations >2h and dose reductions. Responses are given on a six-point scale: never, once per month, every second week, every week, more than once per week and every day. Patients that answer different from "never" in any of the four questions are considered as nonadherent; 4. We evaluated renal function eGFR by Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD); 5. We evaluated Incidence of Infections; 6. We evaluated Treated acute rejection episodes; 7. We evaluated Death cases; 8. We evaluated Graft loss cases; 9. We evaluated Discontinuation of immunosuppressive treatment; 10. We evaluated Hospital readmissions. Study Design This was a single-center, prospective, randomized and controlled study to evaluate the influence of pharmaceutical intervention in tacrolimus intra-subject variability during the first 3 months after transplantation. The authors designed the protocol, acquired and maintained the data, and conducted the statistical analysis. The protocol was approved by an independent ethics committee. All subjects signed a written informed consent before enrollment and the study was conducted according to good clinical practices and declaration of Helsinki. This study was conducted at Hospital do Rim between February 2014 and December 2014, 128 randomized and were followed for 3 months after transplantation.
