Tacrolimus is a quinolone lactone produced from the fermentation process of Streptomyces tsukubaensis bacterium found in a Japanese soil sample. Tacrolimus is a generic pharmaceutical substance that also acts as an immunosuppressive medication used to reduce the risk of organ rejection following an organ transplant. Tacrolimus is also used to treat eczema and psoriasis, as well as severe refractory uveitis following bone marrow transplants, exacerbations of minimum change illness, Kimura's disease, and vitiligo. In 1987, Tacrolimus was found. The FDA approved Tacrolimus for medical use in 1994, and the European Union followed suit in 2002, approving it for the treatment of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.
