Therapeutic Drug Monitoring
1 Assay techniques
1.1 Assays using antibodies
1.1.2 Advantages: rapid, less training, small sample size
1.1.3 Disadvantages: less specific (cross-react)
1.2 chromatography techniques
1.2.1 GC, HPLC
1.2.2 Advantages: better specificity; good for research applications
1.2.3 Disadvantages: equipment costly, needs bigger sample size, not as quick as antibody methods, need more training
2 Blood Sampling
2.1 correct time- usually trough level
2.2 correct type of tube
2.3 correct handling and storage
3 Assay requirements
3.1 Reproducible, accuracy and precision
4 Interpreting TDM result clinically
4.1 look at result AND patient response
4.2 Consider patient factors- e.g. disease, age
4.3 consider assay used and sample collection/handling
4.4 sample taken at correct time?
4.5 what is dosage regimen and when last dose was taken
5 good candidate for TDM
5.1 good correlation between concentration and effect
5.2 therapeutic range defined
5.3 narrow therapeutic index
5.4 large interindividual variability
