GLEOCEPT S -360  is administered to patients who have undergone organ transplant

Transplantation of the organ is the intervention that improves and saves the lives of people who are in the organ failure stage. Transplantation in medical terms involves the transferring or replacement of cells/ tissues/ organs. The transplant source can be from the own body of the patient or from one person to another( or even species). When there takes place the transfer of one’s own tissues from one region of the body to another, then there are no immune responses that are triggered. However, when the transplant takes place from one individual to another or species, then the immune responses are triggered just like the one evoked during the invasion of the foreign agents. So, this can be quite complex while at the same time evoking several of the complications.

The improved outcome achieved after the transplantation of the organ is possible owing to the immunosuppressive medications which is increasing the tolerance of the immune system by modifying the response for reducing the damages taking place due to the rejection of the transplanted organ by the immune system of the recipient. The GLEOCEPT S -360 is belonging to the class of Mycophenolate sodium 360mg & is meant for the prevention of the patient’s body to reject the transplanted kidney organ.
