Purpose: To investigate the effect of mycophenolate mofetil on Walker’s carcinosarcoma, without versus with the growth and regression of cyclosporine. Methods and Results. Wistar rats received water (control), MMF, and/or CsA-N 1 day before tumor inoculation. On day 10, tumor volume (TV) was lower among MMF (10.3 ± 2.8 cmᶾ) than control rats (14.9 ± 4.2 cmᶾ, P <.05), and similar to that in CsA-N (13.9 ± 3.0 cmᶾ). However, tumor weight (TW) was significantly lower in MMF (5.2 ± 2.0 g) than CsA-N (8.8 ± 2.1g) or control hosts (7.3 ± 2.0 g, P ≤ .01). Growth was inhibited by MMF (-28.2%). In experiment II, CsA-N, MMF + CsA-N, or water were introduced 1 day before tumor inoculation. On day 10, TV and TW were similar for MMF + CsA-N as compared to CsA-N and control animals. In experiment III, water or MMF was introduced on the day 4 after tumor inoculation. On day 10, tumor growth are TW in the MMF group was similar to, that in the controls. Conclusions: MMF produces an anti-tumoral effect against Walker’s carcinosarcoma. However, this inhibitory effect was lost when MMF was used in combination with CsA-N or administered in the presence of a well- established tumor.
