The Pharmacology Laboratory of the CDB reference monitoring Votubia.

Dr. Brunet, Senior Consultant, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics of the CDB, is the program coordinator for the determination of blood concentrations of Votubia ® (everolimus) by LC / MS / MS. This determination is a very sensitive and specific technique for the monitoring of drug concentrations of Votubia ® (everolimus) levels and maintain their required concentrations within the therapeutic range, between 5 and 15 ng / ml.

The ETDM project (Everolimus Therapeutic Drug Monitoring) seeks to ensure that patients are not controlled by less appropriate for measuring concentrations of Votubia ® (everolimus) techniques as immunoassay, which is not sufficiently specific or sensitive for fitting the Votubia ® (everolimus) dose.
