What is Nulojix?

Nulojix is prescribed to kidney transplant patients to prevent rejection in transplant patients that have been exposed to Epstein-Barr virus

Nulojix is an immunosuppressant that suppresses the activity of T-cells which may be involved in organ rejection. 

Nulojix works by binding to two molecules CD80 and CD86 that are responsible for activating and stimulating T-cells. By preventing the activation of T-Cells, Nulojix helps prevent organ donor rejection.
