Transplantation is the only medical treatment that needs the solidarity of other people to be carried out. Transplantation consists in replacing a damaged organ or tissue with one that is working properly and that comes from a donor. Without donor solidarity there would be no transplants. Currently this area is perfectly consolidated and regulated, making our country a world leader both in the number of transplants and in the donation rate [1].  

This simple explanation and these successful data contrast with the complexity of the treatment. Although patients improve quality of life after the transplant, there are still risks because exists the probability that they can end up suffering infection or rejection. Hence the importance of maintaining an immunosuppressive balance. It is here that the tireless and excellent work of the healthcare professionals dedicated to the transplant area shines again.

Transplant rejection is a defensive reaction of the organism against an organism that is foreign to it. That is why it is necessary to administer innovative and safe medications that decrease the immune response (immunosuppressants).

From Chiesi we prevent the appearance of rejection in liver and kidney transplant patients thanks to a new tacrolimus formulation of a single daily administration. We are a self-demanding company in the transplant area because we know that research can improve the quality of life of transplant recipients.
Beyond the Pill...
Chiesi's commitment to the field of transplants goes far beyond developing drugs.


Trasplantando Sonrisas

Trasplantando Sonrisas Sonrisas is a project of recognition to the medical and professional centers that make Spain the world's leading solid organ transplant. In addition, the project aims to increase social awareness of the importance of organ donation.

Trasplantando Experiencias
The desire to share knowledge and techniques with those professionals with difficulties in accessing the most advanced training has always been one of the hallmarks of our health professionals. And together with the commitment to sustainability, Chiesi carried out the 'Transplanting experiences' project.

Five surgeons from the liver transplant area and two anesthesiologists traveled to Nicaragua with the aim of sharing their experience and knowledge with local health professionals so that they can cope with pathologies in this area.

Transplanting Experiences’ is a project promoted by the Coen Foundation of Nicaragua that has been possible thanks to the donation of Chiesi Spain. It has the endorsement of the Asociación Española de Cirujanos (AEC) and the Sociedad Española de Trasplante Hepático (SETH).
