About MYCOGRAFT 360MG TABLET 10'S

MYCOGRAFT 360MG TABLET 10'S belongs to the class of medicine called 'immunosuppressant' that helps to prevent organ rejection after kidney transplant. Transplant rejection occurs when the recipient’s immune system identifies the transplanted organ as a ‘foreign object’ and attacks it. If it is not treated promptly, it may cause irreversible damage.

MYCOGRAFT 360MG TABLET 10'S contains ‘mycophenolate sodium’ used in the treatment of organ transplant rejection along with another immunosuppressant and anti-inflammatory agent. It inhibits T and B lymphocytes (a type of white blood cells that attack foreign cells) and suppresses antibodie's production (identify and kill foreign cells). These effects suppress the immune system so that the transplanted graft is not rejected.

MYCOGRAFT 360MG TABLET 10'S contains mycophenolate sodium that is available in tablet form. Take MYCOGRAFT 360MG TABLET 10'S as a whole with a glass of water, do not break, or chew the tablet.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Kidney transplant rejection: When you get a new kidney transplanted to your body, your body recognizes it as a foreign element and tries to attack and reject it because it is not originally part of your body. So, immunosuppressant drugs like mycophenolate sodium are given to suppress your immune system. The ultimate goal is to adjust immunosuppressants to prevent rejection and minimise any drug's side effects.
