Why is this medication prescribed?

Cyclosporin, ciclosporine (USAN) or cyclosporine (former BAN), is an immunosuppressant drug widely used in post-allogeneic organ transplants to reduce the activity of the patient's immune system and the risk of organ rejection. It has been studied in transplants of skin, heart, kidney, lung, pancreas, bone marrow and small intestine.

Additionally, cyclosporin is a cyclic nonribosomal peptide of 11 amino acids (an undecapeptide) produced by the fungus Tolypocladium inflatum gams, initially isolated from a Norwegian soil sample.

Cyclosporin may be used in combination with another immunosuppressant and a steroid medication.
