MYCOPHENOLATE MOFETILManufacturer : MANKIND PHARMACEUTICALS LIMITEDOrigin of Medicine : India
Mycept Suspension consists of the active ingredient Mycophenolate mofetil. It is an immunosuppressant used to prevent and treat organ rejection in patients receiving allogenic, renal, cardiac, or hepatic transplants. It is indicated along with other immunosuppressants to avoid the rejection of the transplanted organ.
Inform your physician right away if there is a sign of fever, sore throat, bleeding, stomach ulcer. Talk to your physician before getting vaccinated using live vaccines.
After solid organ transplantation, the body generates an aggressive immune response because it recognizes the transplanted organ's antigens as a foreign antigen. Thus, treatment with immunosuppressive agents is necessary after an organ transplant to prevent organ rejection.
Immunosuppressants increase the risk of skin cancer. Limit your exposure to the sun, wear protective clothing and use a sunscreen with high SPF.
Uses of Mycept Suspension:
- Prevention of organ rejection after organ transplantation (liver, kidney or heart)
- To prolong the survival of the transplanted organ.
- Prophylaxis and treatment of acute and chronic Graft versus Host disease in hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients.
How Mycept Suspension Works:
Mycept Suspension converts into its active form known as Mycophenolic acid and suppresses the production of T- and B-cells. This reduces the cell-mediated immune responses and antibody formation.
Interaction with other drugs:
Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking or have taken before the treatment.
Store the medicine below 25°C.
