Prograf for Immunosuppression

As a type of immunosuppressant, Prograf® (tacrolimus) can help prevent the body from rejecting and attacking a newly transplanted heart, liver, or kidney. Prograf works by causing the immune system to become less active, making the body less likely to attack a foreign material (such as a new organ).
 
This immunosuppressant can also be prescribed "off-label" for several uses. Some of these unapproved uses for Prograf include the treatment of Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and nephrotic syndrome.
