TAC is an immune suppressant with a narrow therapeutic index and high pharmacokinetic (PK) variability leading to uncertainty in blood concentrations. We previously developed an African-American (AA) specific TAC dosing equation using clinical covariates and genetic variants. Here, we present a dosing equation specific for European American (EA) ancestry.
Methods: Kidney tx recipients from 2005-2011 were prospectively followed at 7 study sites. We created a population PK model from 1354 EA individuals with 21,909 TAC doses and troughs in the first 6 months post-tx using NONMEM 7.3. Stepwise regression tested demographic, lab variables, concomitant medications, and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for their effect on TAC clearance (CL). Nested random effects accounted for inter-subject and inter-study site variability. The top SNPs were identified through a genome-wide association study.
Results: Time post-tx, concomitant corticosteroid use, rs776746 (CYP3A5*3) and rs4646437 (CYP3A4 G>A) increased TAC CL whereas older age, simultaneous pancreas–kidney (SPK) tx, concomitant anti-CMV drug use, and rs35599367 (CYP3A4*22) decreased TAC CL. The model is:Conclusion: We built a TAC CL model using clinical and genotype data from which dose can be estimated for any desired trough target allowing for personalized dosing. Variants that effect drug CL differ between AA and EA individuals. This model will be validated using a new genomics cohort.
