Using transitional changes on HRCT to monitor the impact of cyclophosphamide or mycophenolate on systemic sclerosis-related interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD).

Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is an effective and safe option for the management of systemic sclerosis–associated interstitial lung disease (SSc–ILD). In patients with SSc–ILD with declining pulmonary function, MMF therapy was associated with stability for up to 36 months. PubMed, Clin Exp Rheumatol, 03/24/2016.
