WHAT IS SIROLIMUS SIROPAN 1MG TABLETS ?
Siropan (Sirolimus) lowers your body's immune system. The immune system helps your body fight infections. The immune system can also fight or "reject" a transplanted organ such as a liver or kidney. This is because the immune system treats the new organ as an invader.
Sirolimus is given in a combination treatment with cyclosporine and a steroid medicine to prevent your body from rejecting a transplanted kidney. It is also given without other medicines to treat a rare lung disorder called lymphangioleiomyomatosis. This disorder happens mostly in women and causes lung tumors that are not cancerous but can affect breathing.
