Cyclosporine, Blood


Cyclosporine is a metabolite obtained from two species of fungi isolated from soil. It is a cyclic peptide consisting of 11 amino acid residues. Cyclosporine selectively blocks the transcriptional activation of the genes that encode cytokines (IL-2, IL-4, IL-3, interferon-ɣ, granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor), and the α-chain Cyclosporine, Blood of the IL-2 receptor early in the T cell response thus, inhibiting T cell proliferation. Cyclosporine has revolutionised the field of transplantation medicine increasing the 1-year survival rates of unmatched kidney recipients from 50 to 80%. However, cyclosporine can cause dose dependent nephrotoxicity.
