Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is used for prevention of allograft rejection in transplantation medicine. In dermatology it is used as a corticosteroid-sparing agent. The pharmacokinetics of MMF are known to vary by individual. Therapeutic dose monitoring of mycophenolic acid (MPA), the active metabolite of MMF, is used as a guide in transplantation medicine, but limited data exist on the benefit of measuring MPA levels in the management of dermatologic disease.
