Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to the alternate CAS RN 115007-34-6, and mycophenolate mofetil hydrochloride (CAS RN 116680-01-4). Mycophenolate mofetil is a 2-morpholinoethyl ester of mycophenolic acid used to prevent organ rejection in patients who have received kidney, heart, and liver transplants. Mycophenolate mofetil is an immunosuppressant. It converts mycophenolic acid (MPA), a selective noncompetitive and reversible inhibitor of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase, a key enzyme in de novo guanosine nucleotide synthesis. Because immune cells, unlike other cells, rely on monophosphate dehydrogenase to proliferate, inhibition of this enzyme reduces the immune reaction and lessens graft rejection. MPA has potent cytostatic effects on lymphocytes and inhibits proliferative responses of T- and Blymphocytes to both mitogenic and allospecific stimulation. MPA also suppresses antibody formation by B-lymphocytes. MPA prevents the glycosylation of lymphocyte and monocyte glycoproteins that are involved in intercellular adhesion to endothelial cells and may inhibit recruitment of leukocytes into sites of inflammation and graft rejection.
