A recent study showed that conversion from cyclosporine to tacrolimus in stable kidney transplant recipients resulted in improvement in lipid profile but there was no reduction in the number of medications and marginal reduction in cardiovascular risk parameters.23 Sub-analysis of Symphony study revealed that patients receiving sirolimus (mTOR Inhibitor) had the worst lipaemic
control and patients receiving sirolimus had highest LDL- cholesterol and triglyceides than patients receiving tacrolimus and cyclosporine while there was no difference in HDL levels.24 The two mTOR inhibitors (sirolimus and everolimus) have similar effects on lipid levels.25 At our institution, mTOR inhibitors are not used during the initial
