BACKGROUND Recently, mycophenolic acid drugs have gained interest in the treatment of autoimmune diseases. However, only limited pharmacokinetic data are available on enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium in non-transplant indications. OBJECTIVE This study compared the pharmacokinetics of mycophenolic acid from enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium in patients with autoimmune disease and renal transplant recipients. METHODS Twelve autoimmune disease patients (mainly with antineutrophil… CONTINUE READING
