Description

Mycophenolic acid (MPA), known as Mycophenolate, is an immunosuppressant indicated for:

  • Organ Transplant: Prevention of transplant rejection in kidney, heart, and liver transplants.

In children older than two years old, mycophenolate sodium has also been used to prevent transplant rejection in the case of liver, heart, or lung transplants.
