Cyclosporine has a tendency to reduce the activity of the immune system. It acts by forming a complex with cyclophilin and results in formation of complexes with calcineurin. Due to this the transcription of interleukin-2 gets stopped. Thus the immune system does not respond and the activity of immune system decreases. Hence the organ rejection does not occur.
