Rapamycin is a type of antibiotic, a type of immunosuppressant, and a type of serine/threonine kinase inhibitor.
Rapamycin is used to keep the body from rejecting organ and bone marrow transplants.
Rapamycin blocks certain white blood cells that can reject foreign tissues and organs. It also blocks a protein that is involved in cell division.
Rapamycin is now called sirolimus.
