Sirolimus Blood Test

Sirolimus, also known as rapamycin, is a drug that suppresses the immune system in individuals with a kidney transplant. This medicine is combined with other medicines to prevent the rejection of transplanted kidneys. Hence, the Sirolimus test analyses its levels in the blood.

Usually, an individual’s immune system identifies a transplanted organ as foreign material and begins to exhibit coping strategies. Sirolimus reduces this response and prevents organ rejection by inhibiting the production and activation of white blood cells known as T- lymphocytes. It also obstructs the production of antibodies.
