The body is made up of multiple organs and among those liver and kidney are the vital organs of the body. These two have different kinds of function that are necessary for smooth functioning of the body and keeping your health intact. Both are also very essential for the body. The liver has some very important functions like digestion, metabolism, immunity and containing the nutrients within the body. It is the second largest organ in the body. The kidney is also a very vital organ like the liver and it also has similar importance. The kidneys are bean shaped organs and come in pairs. Their main function is to extract waste from the body and acts like a filtration plant. It also helps in balancing the water content in our body, regularizing the blood pressure and red blood cells. Hence both of these organs almost work hand to hand in keeping us healthy.
But at times these vital organs can cause trouble for us if they start to malfunction or encounter failure. This can have adverse affect on our health and at times even result into fatality. Kidney failure, liver cancer, liver cirrhosis and liver cancer are some of the organ related issue that we have to face. The treatment for these types of organ related problem is usually invasive treatment or mainly transplant. But the body immune function at times does not accept the newly transplanted organ and there is a chance of rejection as well. To prevent this, a medication called cyclosporine is recommended. This medicine is specifically meant for those people who have undergone transplant surgery of kidney and liver. This is also given to those people who have undergone heart transplant surgery. The medication is given with other medications so that the body accepts the new organ and it functions properly.
Apart from the organ transplant issue, the drug of cyclosporine is also meant for treating severe rheumatoid arthritis and certain kind of skin condition. The drug belongs to the class of immune suppressants. It functions by slacking the body’s immune system and thus preventing the rejection of the organ that has been transplanted. It also helps the patients with rheumatoid arthritis and prevents further damage to the skin and also to the skin who suffer from the issue of psoriasis.
