IMURAN is used as an immunosuppressant antimetabolite either alone, or more commonly, in combination with other agents (usually corticosteroids) and procedures which influence the immune response. Therapeutic effect may be evident only after weeks or months and can include a steroid-sparing effect, thereby reducing the toxicity associated with high dosage and prolonged usage of corticosteroids. IMURAN, in combination with corticosteroids and/or other immunosuppressive agents and procedures, is indicated in the management of patients receiving organ transplants. IMURAN, either alone or more usually in combination with corticosteroids and/or other procedures, has been used with clinical benefit (which may include reduction of dosage or discontinuation of corticosteroids) in a proportion of patients suffering from the following: severe rheumatoid arthritis; systemic lupus erythematosus; dermatomyositis/polymyositis; autoimmune chronic active hepatitis; pemphigus vulgaris; polyarteritis nodosa; autoimmune haemolytic anaemia; chronic refractory idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.

Main Indication:

Treatment of all types of potassium deficiencies, particularly hypochloraemic or hypokalaemic alkalosis, associated with prolonged or intensive diuretic therapy, e.g. in hypertension, cardiac failure or massive oedema (potassium replacement is particularly important to patients receiving digitalis, as the clinical response to this drug is seriously affected by hypokalaemia), in renal disease associated with increased potassium excretion, e.g. nephrotic syndrome; vomiting and diarrhoea, ulcerative colitis, steatorrhoea, diabetes insipidus, and uncontrolled diabetes mellitus; ileostomy or colostomy patients, cirrhosis; Cushing's syndrome and dietary insufficiency; during prolonged or intensive treatment with corticosteroids, ACTH or carbenoxolone; hyperaldosteronism in megaloblastic anaemia, during the early stages of treatment. Here Span-K is indicated if a diet rich in potassium cannot be guaranteed.
