Introduction

The immune system of body helps in fighting against the infections. Sometimes, when heart, liver or kidney transplantation occurs, the body’s immune system rejects it as it treats new organ as an invader. In order to prevent the rejection chances of liver, heart or kidney transplant, generic Prograf is recommended by doctors. The drug is available in 0.5mg, 1mg, 2mg, 3mg, 4mg and 5mg capsule form.


Use

Generic Prograf belongs to group of drugs known as immunosuppressant. The drug is mainly used for treating and preventing the cases of rejection of liver transplants. The drug works by blocking the action of calcineurin, a substance that is available in T-lymphocytes (white blood cells). These white blood cells produce lymphokines when any foreign substance is detected in the body. Because immune system is not able to recognize them, so it starts attacking the transplant organ. When a person takes the drug, the activity of T-lymphocytes gets suppressed, thereby preventing the chances of rejection of transplantation.
