Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
Anti-proliferative in T- and B-lymphocytes via inhibition of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH). Also suppresses antibody formation by B-lymphocytes and may inhibit recruitment of leukocytes into sites of inflammation and graft rejection.
