Archive for Cyclosporine


Cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune, Gengraf) is a potent immunosuppressant drug used in treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, and other autoimmune diseases. Cyclosporine is considered a disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) because it not only helps treat the symptoms of arthritis but also decreases the progression of the condition thereby reducing the risk of long-term joint destruction and disability.
