Indications & Dosage of Neoral
Neoral is used to prevent rejection of organ in a patient who has received an organ transplant such as a kidney, heart or liver transplant. The drug is specifically used to lower the natural immunity in a patient who has undergone organ transplant operation. Neoral is also indicated in the treatment of severe cases of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.
The human body generally rejects transplanted organ and causes WBCs to attack the transplanted organ and get rid of it. Cyclosporine, the active ingredient in the medication, works to prevent WBCs from attacking the transplanted organ and helping the body accept the transplanted organ as its own.
