Metabolite Identification
Common Name6-O-Desmethyl-mycophenolic acid
Description6-O-Desmethyl-mycophenolic acid is a metabolite of mycophenolic acid. Mycophenolic acid or mycophenolate is an immunosuppressant drug used to prevent rejection in organ transplantation. It inhibits an enzyme needed for the growth of T cells and B cells. It was initially marketed as the prodrug mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) to improve oral bioavailability. More recently, the salt mycophenolate sodium has also been introduced. Mycophenolic acid is commonly marketed under the trade names CellCept and Myfortic. (Wikipedia)
