Özet

Objective: The pharmacokinetics of mycophenolic acid (MPA) differ among individuals. MPA is primarily metabolized by uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT), and UGT2B7 is an important UGT for the glucuronidation of MPA. This study aimed to examine the pharmacokinetics of MPA in Turkish renal transplant patients with UGT2B7 His268Tyr (802C>T) polymorphisms.
