Immunosuppressant therapy

Immunosuppressant therapy is a treatment intended to combat the effects of rejection following transplantation.

Essential throughout the life of the transplant, immunosuppressant therapy involves an association of several medicines. Immunosuppression protocols vary depending on the recipients immunological state, the period after the transplant and any possible episodes of acute rejection.

Whilst immunosuppressant therapy usually controls the rejection reaction, it reduces the body's defences against infections and can predispose to some tumours.
