Importance of water purity

The purity of the water used to reconstitute CellCept oral suspension is an important consideration.[1] Many patients treated with immunosuppressant drugs (including CellCept) are at increased risk of opportunistic infection (bacterial, fungal, viral, and protozoal).[2] Therefore, only purified water should be used to reconstitute CellCept.
