How Does Gengraf Work?

Gengraf works by making the immune system less active. An overactive immune system is involved in rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. In transplant rejection, the immune system mistakes the transplanted organ as a potentially harmful foreign invader and attacks it. Therefore, by suppressing the immune system, Gengraf can help prevent transplant rejection and ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis.

Can Children Use It?

This medication is approved to prevent transplant rejection in children as young as one year of age. However, it is only approved for use in individuals who are at least 18 years old when used for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of using Gengraf in children.

Can Older Adults Use It?
