What are Imuran tablets 50 mg for Crohn's disease?

The active principle of Imuran tablets is azathioprine, a medicine of the class of immunosupressants. It works by inhibiting the development and growth of immunocompetent cells, and blocking the cooperative immune system. As the result, Imuran tablets significantly reduce inflammation in patients with mild or moderate Crohn's disease. Most of the patients undergoing treatment with azathioprine reach full remission within one year. Imuran tablets can be used together with other medications, like mesalazine or allopurinol oxypurinol/thiopurinol. However, Japanese doctors often prescribe this medicine for monotherapy, especially for patients who are unable to tolerate mesalazine and sulfasalazine. 

Active principles: azathioprine
