Imuran (Azathioprine) prevents organ rejection after kidney transplants. It's vital in ensuring the body accepts the new kidney.

Azathioprine belongs to a class of drugs known as immunosuppressants. It works by suppressing the immune system. This is necessary to prevent your body from mistakenly attacking the transplanted kidney.

Azathioprine is also used to manage rheumatoid arthritis. In this case, it lessens immune system activity that causes joint damage. It's typically used alongside other medications. This combined approach maximizes the success of a kidney transplant.
