The clinical effects of tacrolimus (TAC) exposure on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after liver transplantation (LT) remain unclear. In this retrospective single centric study, 512 patients who underwent LT for HCC were divided into four groups according to cumulative exposure to tacrolimus (CET) during 3 months after LT: conventional (n = 218), aggressive minimization (n = 32), minimization (n = 161), and high exposure (n = 101). Impact of CET on HCC recurrence and death were analyzed. Compared with the conventional group, the other three CET groups showed a similar risk of HCC recurrence. The aggressive minimization group showed a higher risk [hazard ratio (HR) 5.64, P < 0.001] and the high exposure group showed a marginal risk (HR 1.67, P = 0.081) of overall death compared to the conventional group. CET during 3 months was not associated with HCC recurrence in the matched cohort and various subgroups. TAC minimization is not effective to prevent HCC recurrence but could result in higher mortality in LT recipients.
