General functionNulojix is used in adults to prevent the body from rejecting a transplanted kidney. It is used with corticosteroids and a mycophenolic acid (other medicines used to prevent organ rejection). An interleukin-2-receptor-antagonist medicine should also be used with Nulojix during the first week after the kidney transplant.
The medicine can only be obtained with a prescription.
Short description
Pharmacodynamic properties
(Mechanism of action; Source EMA document)
Belatacept binds to CD80 and CD86 on antigen presenting cells. As a result, belatacept blocks CD28 mediated co-stimulation of T cells inhibiting their activation. Activated T cells are the predominant mediators of immunologic response to the transplanted kidney. Belatacept, a modified form of CTLA4-Ig, binds CD80 and CD86 more avidly than the parent CTLA4-Ig molecule from which it is derived. This increased avidity provides a level of immunosuppression that is necessary for preventing immune-mediated allograft failure and dysfunction.
Pharmacodynamic properties (Pharmacodynamic effects; Source EMA document)In a clinical study, approximately 90% saturation of CD86 receptors on the surface of antigenpresenting cells in the peripheral blood was observed following the initial administration of belatacept. During the first month post-transplantation, 85% saturation of CD86 was maintained. Up to month 3 post-transplantation with the recommended dosing regimen, the level of CD86 saturation was maintained at approximately 70% and at month 12, approximately 65%.
