Azathioprine is used as an immunosuppressant/antimetabolite either alone or, more commonly, in combination with the 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. Azathioprine, in combination
with corticosteroids and/or other immunosuppressive agents and procedures, is indicated in the management of patients receiving organ transplants.
Azathioprine, 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 and chronic refractory idiopathic thromocytopenic purpura.
