Several years later, a large historical prospective trial was conducted including 31 patients with pemphigus vulgaris and 11 patients with pemphigus foliaceus, who had relapsed on prednisone therapy or had had adverse effects from previous drug therapy [ 20 ]. Combined treatment with prednisone and MMF (35-45 mg/kg) led to complete remission in 71 % of the pemphigus vulgaris group and 45 % of the pemphigus foliaceus group.…”

“…In a study of 42 pemphigus sufferers, 71% of pemphigus vulgaris patients and 45% of pemphigus foliaceus patients had a complete remission of disease, with a median time of 9 months to remission [12] . Successful outcomes with MMF therapy have also been reported in bullous pemphigoid, paraneoplastic pemphigus, cicatricial pemphigoid, linear IgA bullous dermatosis, and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita [11] .…”
