We greatly appreciate the comment by Nousari and Anhalt concerning our article published in the ARCHIVES.
We agree with the authors that the final and optimal dosage of mycophenolate mofetil for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, such as pemphigus, still needs to be defined. The dosage of 2 g/d that we suggested may be too low to benefit certain patients with severe disease, although, in our hands, this dosage usually induced remissions.
