(Times of India) – For a patient in need of an organ transplant, finding the right donor and undergoing the procedure is just half the battle won. Thereafter, living with the foreign organ comes with a huge price tag in way of immuno suppressants or antirejection drugs which the recipient has to depend on for the rest of his life. In a huge respite for such patients , the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority ( NPPA ) has reduced the rates of these drugs, with the cost of most-widely used Tacrolimus being slashed by 60-65%.
