SFP and Mode Conditioning Patch Cable

Is it safe to assume any SFP designed for single mode fiber  (i.e., MGBLH1) can work with multi-mode fiber if using a mode conditioning patch cable?

It should work. The "mode conditioner" adds a loss in your optical link, typically 2 db.

If you want be sure you must do a link budget.
