What is organ transplant rejection?

Rejection happens when your immune system thinks your transplanted organ is foreign and attacks it.

During rejection, the transplanted organ doesn't work as well as it should. This doesn't mean that it will stop working completely, and it doesn't mean that you will always lose your transplanted organ. If you have any concerns or questions about organ rejection, talk to your transplant team.

Why CellCept?

CellCept is one of many anti-rejection medicines (also called immunosuppressive medicines) prescribed to help patients prevent rejection of their transplanted organ. After your transplant, you may take several of these medicines to suppress your immune system so that it won't attack your transplanted organ.
