Arpimune-O 50mg Capsule is used to prevent the body from rejecting a new organ after a liver, kidney, heart transplant, or bone marrow transplantation. It weakens the immune system so that your body does not attack the new organ. It is also used to treat nephrotic syndrome, severe rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis.
In Prevention of organ rejection in transplant patients
Arpimune-O 50mg Capsule belongs to a group of medicines known as immunosuppressive agents. It lowers your immune response and reduces the chance of your body attacking the transplanted organ. Organ rejection happens when your immune system treats the new organ as an invader and attacks it. This medicine suppresses the immune system and helps your body accept the new organ as if it were your own.
In Treatment of Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition where your body’s immune system (which usually fights bacteria and viruses) attacks your body’s own cells. Arpimune-O 50mg Capsule stops that from happening and can relieve the symptoms of this condition such as pain, swelling, and stiffness in your joints. It can also slow down joint damage, reduce disability, and enable you to be as active for as long as possible. It can take several weeks or months to notice the effect of the medicine. You should continue taking it until your doctor says it is okay to stop using the medicine.
In Treatment of Psoriasis
Arpimune-O 50mg Capsule can be used to treat severe psoriasis when other treatments have not worked or are not appropriate. Psoriasis happens when skin cells are replaced more quickly than usual. This medicine can improve your skin and reduce the symptoms of rash, redness, and pain. The improvement in the appearance of your skin can boost your confidence and improve your life. Psoriasis is a long-term condition. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as it is prescribed.
In Prevention of graft rejection following Bone marrow transplantation
Arpimune-O 50mg Capsule suppresses the immune response, reducing the risk of the recipient's immune system attacking and rejecting the transplanted bone marrow. This increases the success rate of the transplant and allows for the restoration of normal blood cell production and immune function.
In Treatment of Nephrotic syndrome
Nephrotic syndrome is a kidney disorder that causes your body to pass too much protein in your urine accompanied with excessive swelling over various parts of the body such as around the eyes and in the feet and ankles. Arpimune-O 50mg Capsule works by suppressing the immune system thereby reducing inflammation and swelling that occur in nephrotic syndrome. It reduces the protein in the urine and also helps in getting rid of the extra fluid, thereby relieving the swelling over different parts of the body. This helps to restore the normal kidney function and prevents further damage to the kidneys.
