What is Rapamune Oral Solution?
Rapamune Oral Solution is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer. Rapamune is an mTOR inhibitor immunosuppressant used for the prevention of organ rejection in patients aged 13 years of age and older receiving kidney transplants. Rapamune reduces the body’s natural immune system from functioning as it normally would helping it to accept the transplanted organ.
Patients at low to moderate-immunologic risk should use it initially in combination with cyclosporine (CsA) and corticosteroids. Patients at high-immunologic risk should use it in combination with CsA and corticosteroids for the first 12 months after an organ transplant.
Rapamune is also used for the treatment of patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Rapamune is not recommended for use in liver or lung transplant patients. Only doctors experienced in immunosuppressive therapy and management of renal transplant patients should use Rapamune for the prevention of organ rejection.
