Ichmune C (Cyclosporine) used to treat atopic dermatitis or perianal fistulae (inflammation, ulceration and draining sinuses around the anus) in dogs. Cyclosporine is classed as an immunosuppressant. By supressing certain cells in the immune system (T-helper and T-suppressor cells) and inhibiting interleukin-2 it is able to reduce the symptoms associated with these conditions.
How is Ichmune used?
Dogs taking cyclosporine should not be vaccinated with any live vaccine during treatment, or for at least two weeks before or after treatment.
Cyclosporine is strong immunosuppressant. It may make your dog more susceptible to infection and development of neoplasia.
