Answer

Immunosuppressive drugs

These agents promote immune suppressor cell function related to production of autoimmune reactions.

Cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune)

Cyclic polypeptide that suppresses some humoral immunity and, to greater extent, cell-mediated immune reactions, such as delayed hypersensitivity, allograft rejection, experimental allergic encephalomyelitis, and graft-versus-host disease for variety of organs. Reserve IV use only for those who cannot take PO.
