Muromonab-CD3 Medication Information

Muromonab-CD3 (Orthoclone OKT®3) is a prescription drug approved to treat kidney transplant rejection. It is also used to treat liver and heart transplant rejection after steroid medicines have been tried but failed. This product works by making the immune system less active, stopping the body from attacking and rejecting the newly transplanted organ. The medicine comes in the form of an intravenous (IV) injection that is administered for 10 to 14 days.
 
Most people who receive muromonab-CD3 will experience some type of side effect. Some of the more commonly reported problems include fever, chills, and nausea. Your healthcare provider will also give you other medications to help minimize your risk for side effects.
 
Before taking muromonab-CD3, update your healthcare provider on any information regarding other medications you are taking (including vitamins and supplements), as well as any allergies you may have. It is also important to let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
