In brief: Experimental

Cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) (mycophenolate) is a medication that has been used to treat interstitial lung diseases that are autoimmune in nature.
While hypersensitivity pneumonitis is an interstitial lung disease, it is triggered by "extrinsic' triggers such as airborne mold, and other "organic" substances. There is not enough data to prove that CellCept (mycophenolate mofetil) would be helpful at this point in time.
