Envarsus® is a novel formulation of tacrolimus designed using advance technology which allows for increased bioavailability and controlled, smooth delivery, resulting in in once daily dosing, a lower total daily dose requirement, and lower peak concentrations with less fluctuation.
In addition to the prophylaxis of organ rejection in kidney transplant patients converted from tacrolimus, Envarsus is now FDA-approved for use in de novo kidney transplant patients as of December 2018. That means more patients, including hard-to-treat patients such as rapid metabolizers, can benefit from once-daily controlled-release Envarsus. Envarsus is marketed as Envarsus XR® in the Unites States.
