Rapamycin, also known as sirolimus is an immunosuppressant indicated for prevention of organ rejection in patient receiving a kidney transplant and for treatment of lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Rapamycin is a macrolide compound obtained from Streptomyces hygroscopicus that selectively blocks cytokine production, antibody production, and inhibits T-lymphocyte activation and proliferation. It binds to the immunophilin, FK binding protein producing an immunosuppressive complex. The complex inhibits the activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin which suppresses cytokine-driven T-cell proliferation. Overall it suppresses the body’s immune system.
