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.

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.
