Immunosuppressant Medicine for Kidney Transplant

Medicines Fight Kidney Rejection

Immunosuppressant medicine helps protect your child's new kidney from rejection. Immunosuppressants work because the immune system's job is to attack foreign bodies, like this organ that has been detected. By weakening that natural response, the body can become accustomed to the new kidney. While it is always at risk for rejection, these medicines can successfully manage the donor kidney's ability to function.
