The IMMUNOBIOGRAM® is not meant to replace the therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM), as TDM measure pharmacokinetics of the drugs but gives no information about the pharmacodynamic effect in the immune system. A concomitant evaluation of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of the drugs can be an advisable tool to perform successful patient-tailored immunosuppressive therapy.
The IMMUNOBIOGRAM® can support clinicians in the selection of the optimal combination/posology of immunosuppressant drugs and it will be a complementary tool to therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM).
