Mycophenolate Mofetil (Cellcept)

Treatment With Mycophenolate (MMF) and Cyclophosphamide (CYC) Leads to Clinically Meaningful Improvements in Patient-Reported Outcomes in Scleroderma Lung Disease (SSc-ILD). Treatment with CYC and MMF improved overall health-related quality of life in patients with SSc-ILD. PubMed, ACR Open Rheumatol, 05/20/2020. (Also see Cyclophosphamide)

Using transitional changes on HRCT to monitor the impact of cyclophosphamide or mycophenolate on systemic sclerosis-related interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD). Significantly favorable transitions from both ground glass and lung fibrosis ILD patterns to normal lung were found in patients undergoing immunosuppressive treatment for Ssc-ILD. PubMed, Arthritis Rheumatol, 08/20/2019. (Also see Cyclophosphamide)

Scleroderma Lung Study II. This study compares 2 different medications—daily oral cyclophosphamide (CYC) 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. (Also see Pulmonary Fibrosis, Cyclophosphamide, and Clinical Trials)
