In his comment to our recently published article on the effectiveness of mycophenolate in the treatment of pemphigus, Dr Bystryn mentions that the results presented are impressive and much more striking than the remission rates usually expected. This is true and in our mind justifies the use of mycophenolate for the treatment of pemphigus. It certainly was the reason for us to push the development of a protocol including mycophenolate as a potential treatment option for pemphigus.
