Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has conventionally been administered at a fixed dose without routinely monitoring blood levels of mycophenolic acid (MPA), the active metabolite. The contribution of therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) during MMF therapy remains controversial. A literature review was performed to explore the usefulness of TDM for MPA in solid organ transplantation. In addition, emphasis was placed on the potential clinical benefits and limitations of TDM for MPA. Available studies have… CONTINUE READING
