How Does This Medicine Work?

Transplant rejection occurs when the immune system, which is responsible for protecting the body from invaders, recognizes that the newly transplanted kidney is not a natural part of the body and attacks it. NULOJIX works by decreasing the activity of the immune system, so it is less able to reject the kidney.

Is NULOJIX Safe for Use in Children?

This medication is not approved for use in children and adolescents younger than 18 years of age, as it has not been adequately studied in this age group. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of using NULOJIX in children.

Can Older Adults Use It?

In clinical trials, there were no differences in NULOJIX side effects or effectiveness when older adults were compared to younger adults. However, very few older adults were included in the clinical trials. More information is needed before all problems can be ruled out. As is generally the case, some older adults may be more sensitive to the effects of this medicine and, therefore, more likely to experience side effects.

Off-Label Uses for NULOJIX

On occasion, healthcare providers may recommend medications for something other than the officially approved uses. This is known as an "off-label" use. At this time, there are no off-label uses for this medicine.
