Can Mycophenolate Mofetil be Tapered Safely in MG? A Retrospective, Multicenter Analysis
Dr. Justin Willer interviews Dr. Lisa Hobson-Webb about her Muscle & Nerve article on safely tapering mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) in myasthenia gravis (MG) patients. MMF is frequently used to treat patients with MG but there is little information to guide clinicians on the safety of reducing the dose in well-controlled patients. Discussion includes standard dosages, determining clinical response to MMF and suggested goals in tapering MMF. Muscle Nerve. 2015 Aug;52(2):211-5. doi: 10.1002/mus.24694. Epub 2015 Jun 18.
