Abstract

Mycophenolate mofetil blocks the "de novo" -purine synthesis to reduce the incidence and severity of acute rejection episodes. There has been an increased interest in utility of monitoring mycophenolic acid (MPA) levels, however currently the MPA monitoring is not part of the protocol following liver transplantation. We assessed whether trough MPA monitoring could be advisable in liver transplant patients or not. For this reason MPA levels of 56 liver transplants were measured on 3, 5, 10, 14, 21, 30, 60, and 180 posttransplant days. The optimal cut-off of MPA level (
