Mycophenolic Acid

Available by prescription only, mycophenolate is a drug that belongs to a group of medicines known as immunosuppressants. It is available in two forms: as mycophenolate mofetil in CellCept® and mycophenolate sodium in Myfortic®. Mycophenolate sodium is also sometimes referred to as mycophenolic acid or mycophenolate acid.
 
Mycophenolate is used to prevent organ rejection in people who have a heart, liver, or kidney transplant. It works by blocking the action of certain enzymes in the body, making the immune system less active. The body's natural response to a foreign material, such as a newly transplanted organ, is to attack it and try to get rid of it. Because mycophenolate makes the immune system less active, it can help prevent transplant rejection from occurring.
