Mode of Action of Psorid 100mg Strip Of 5 Capsules

How Does It Work?

When there is organ or graft transplant in any patient, the body takes donor organ or graft as a foreign substance and tries to reject it by forming special cells against it. This process may lead to organ or graft rejection. Ciclosporin blocks the formation of these cells and prevents the rejection of transplanted tissue. The immune system normally protects against microorganisms like bacteria and viruses. When it senses any foreign substances, it develops fighter cells to attack them. An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system erroneously attacks your own body. This medicine is also helpful in the case of autoimmune disorders.
