Organ Transplant Immunosuppressant Drugs Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Organ transplant immunosuppressants are a class of drugsadministered to lower the chances of organ rejection after a transplant and are also called as anti-rejection drugs. When a person gets an organ transplant such as kidney, liver or heart, the body identifies transplant as a foreign tissue and attacks it causing severe rejection. These immunosuppressant drugs weaken the immune system thereby decreasing the body’s reaction totransplant. Almost every person undergoing a solid organ transplant requires to take immunosuppressant drugs. Therefore the global market for these drugs is...
