Mycophenolate mofetil | Immunomodulator

Mycophenolate mofetil (128794-94-5) is a mycophenolic acid prodrug. Immunosuppressive agent useful in prevention of organ allograft rejection.1 Is metabolized to mycophenolic acid in vivo  which acts by inhibiting the biosynthesis of guanine nucleotides via  inhibition of inosine 5’-monophosphate dehydrogenase, suppressing the production of proinflammatory cytokines, nitric oxide and LDH in macrophages.2,3 IL-2-dependent T cell proliferation is also inhibited.4  Inhibits microglial and astrocytic activation reducing cell death after neuronal injury.5  Active in vivo.
