The Target Cell of Immunosuppressive Agents

  • Jean Francois Bach


The four classes of immunosuppressive agents which are most widely used clinically are thiopurines (6-mercaptopurine, azathioprine), alkylating agents (cyclophosphamide, chlorambucil), corticosteroids and antilymphocyte serum. Their effects differ very much from one another and these differences in activity are probably related to differences in target cells.
