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 mycophenolic acid are given to such patients to suppress your immune system to attack newly transplanted kidney. The ultimate goal is to adjust immunosuppressant to prevent rejection and minimise any drugs' side effects.
