Overview Of Cyclosporine

Uses And Benefits 


Cyclosporine is an excellent treatment for many conditions. Of course, these health problems involve immune dysfunction! The most common of these is transplant rejection. This is also called graft rejection. This condition means the recipient's immune system is rejecting the transplanted organ. Organ rejection is the result of the immune system considering the cells in the new organ as foreign! This medication helps stop this from happening. The reason is that it is an immunosuppressant. This means it suppresses the immune system and its response!

This drug also treats graft-versus-host disease. This condition means the white blood cells from the transplanted stem cells or bone marrow attack the cells in the patient's body! This medication benefits many other inflammatory conditions. Specifically, it helps those where an immune disorder triggers inflammation of the joints, eyes, and skin, as well as other body parts. Examples include rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis!
