NULOJIX Medication Information

If you have a kidney transplant, your healthcare provider may prescribe NULOJIX® (belatacept). This medicine works by weakening the immune system so that your body does not reject the newly transplanted kidney.
 
NULOJIX comes as an intravenous (IV) injection that is administered by a healthcare provider. Your specific dose will depend on your weight. This medication should only be given to people who are immune to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
 
Before starting treatment with NULOJIX, make sure to review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. For example, you may not be able to use this medicine if you have certain allergies, cancer, or a history of tuberculosis. Also, this drug may react with certain other medications.
 
Although most people tolerate NULOJIX well, side effects can occur. Some of the common reactions reported with this drug include anemia, diarrhea, and swelling.
