Description of the Drug
Tacrolimus is an immunosuppressive agent, which is a macrolide calcineurin inhibitor. It has immunoregulatory properties and prevents autoimmunity; a process by which the body, abnormally reacts to its cellular products. It acts on the cell of the immune system, called T-cell, which is usually involved in auto-immune reactions.
Indications and Usage
Tacrolimus is used topically for atopic dermatitis (eczema); a chronic allergic skin disorder. The disease results in inflamed, itchy, red, swollen, and cracked patches on the skin. Tacrolimus relieves these symptoms by inhibiting an enzyme (calcineurin) which is crucial for the multiplication of T-cells. The Tacroz-0.03% (10gm) ointment is used for the treatment of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis in people who have normal immune systems, but have not responded to other topical treatments.
