Mycophenolate Mofetil (Cellcept)

Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) in systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD). In this retrospective study, we reviewed the medical files of 10 patients with SSc-ILD and found that MMF stabilizes lung function of SSc-ILD after 12 months of treatment. Athanasios Koutroumpas. (SpringerLink) Clinical Rheumatology. 06/09/10. (Also see: Cellcept)
Scleroderma Lung Study II. This study compares 2 different medications—daily oral cyclophosphamide (CYC, also called CytoxanTM) with daily oral mycophenolate mofetil (MMF, also called CellceptTM) in the treatment of scleroderma-related pulmonary fibrosis. There are twelve study centers across the U.S. University of California, Los Angeles. November 2009. (Also see: Pulmonary Fibrosis, Cytoxan, and Clinical Trials)
