Pimecrolimus is an immunomodulatory drug from the same family as tacrolimus. These drugs were originally developed specifically for the treatment of inflammatory skin disease in people. The mechanism of action for both pimecrolimus and tacrolimus is through the inhibition of calcium-dependent pathways that effect the enzymatic action of calcineurin. This, in turn, blocks the proliferation of T lymphocytes and cytotoxic cells.
The effect of topical pimecrolimus on keratoconjunctivitis sicca and chronic superficial keratitis in dogs: results from an exploratory study.
