Pediatric kidney transplantation part 42

Children

 

IMMUNOSUPPRESSANTS

Immunosuppressants  (also known as anti-rejection medications) help to prevent the body from attacking  the new transplanted kidney. Immunosuppressants do this by suppressing, or weakening, the immune system, which usually fights infection and tries to destroy anything that it doesn’t think should be there.

Your child will take immunosuppressants for the rest of their life, but over time they will need a lower dose.
