What does the medication that transplant patients take do?

    Medication for transplant patients reduces the chance that the body will reject the new organ.  Different medications do this in different ways.  Many of them stop the growth of the specific cells that cause rejection, or disable the processes in these cells that lead to rejection.

    When a transplant of organs occurs, the body of the recipient sees the new organ as a foreign body, the same way it recognizes diseases, bacteria, and viruses, and it will make attempts to expel the organ from the body, causing the organ to fail. Immunosuppresant drugs are given to the recipient of the new organ to suppress the immune system to prevent the rejection from happening and allowing the new organ to thrive.
