Mycophenolate Mofetil (Cellcept)

Also known as Cellcept


Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) (brand names CellCept, Myfortic) is an immunosuppressant and prodrug of mycophenolic acid, used extensively in transplant medicine. It is a reversible inhibitor of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) in purine (guanine) biosynthesis which is necessary for the growth of T cells and B cells. Other cells are able to recover purines via a separate scavenger pathway and are thus able to escape the effect.
