51+ booked in last 3 days


Cyclosporine by LCMS (Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) is a test used to monitor the levels of Cyclosporine, an immunosuppressive drug, in the blood. Cyclosporine is commonly prescribed to prevent organ rejection in individuals who have undergone liver, kidney, or heart transplantation. The clinical utility of this test lies in monitoring the drug levels to ensure they are within the therapeutic range. When submitting the sample, it is important to provide additional information such as the history of the drug dose taken, the time of sample collection (peak or trough levels, indicated as C0 or C2, respectively), and relevant clinical history. This information assists healthcare professionals in interpreting the results accurately, optimizing the drug dosage, and making informed decisions regarding the management of immunosuppression. Monitoring Cyclosporine levels helps in achieving the desired immunosuppressive effect while minimizing the risk of drug toxicity and rejection episodes in transplant recipients.
