IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVES

Immunosuppressives are the medications that help to suppress the body immune system.  Mainly they are helpful in case of transplantation of body organs when our body immune system rejects transplanted organ.

Immunosuppression is a reduction of the activation or efficacy of the immune system. An immunosuppressant is any agent that weakens the immune system, including immunosuppressive drugs and some environmental toxins. Immunosuppressant drugs are used to treat autoimmune diseases such as lupus. An autoimmune disorder is a disease process in which the body attacks its own tissue. Lupus results from just a misdirected activity of the body’s own immune system. By suppressing this reaction, immunosuppressant drugs can help control the impact of the disease on the body. There are deliberately induced Immunosuppressive drugs and non-deliberately induced immunosuppressive drugs. Usage of immunosuppressants leads to immunodeficiency which can cause increased susceptibility to  infections and other major diseases. The term immunotoxin is also sometimes used to discuss undesirable immunosuppressants, such as various pollutants. Other diseases treated with immunosuppressant drugs include: psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, a chronic inflammation of the digestive tract, multiple sclerosis, alopecia areata (patchy hair loss).

Immunosuppressive drugs can be classified into five groups namely gluco corticoids, cytostatics, antibodies and drugs acting on immunophilins and other drugs. They are having different types of mechanism of action to suppress the immune system of the body. They can be administered as tablets capsules, liquids, and Injections.
