Were you looking for more information about Basiliximab? Basilixmab is a common misspelling of basiliximab.
Available by prescription only, basiliximab (Simulect®) is a medication approved for preventing organ rejection after a kidney transplant in adults and children as young as one year old. It works by blocking the action of certain white blood cells, making the body less likely to attack and reject a newly transplanted organ.
Basiliximab is given as an intravenous (IV) injection by your healthcare provider. Your specific dosage will depend on things like your age and weight (in children). Although most people tolerate it well, side effects may occur and can include constipation, headaches, and nausea.
