BACKGROUND Controversy remains about the interaction between mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and the calcineurin inhibitors cyclosporin (CsA) and tacrolimus (TACR). The need to double the dose of MMF in case of CsA co-administration to achieve the same mycophenolic acid (MPA) levels as in TACR co-administration, has been attributed to either inhibition by CsA of the enterohepatic cycle, or an inhibition of glucuronidation to mycophenolate glucuronide (MPAG) by TACR. We explored these interactions… CONTINUE READING
