In brief: A lot

Organ rejection is a complex and not entirely understood immunologic process.
Different immunosuppressive drugs are designed to interrupt different parts of this cascade of processes. Each drug has different efficacy and side-effect profiles. Most of the time clinicians employ a combination of multiple drugs and adjust their dosages to maximize efficacy & minimize side-effects.
