VAMS™ and AEDs: an exciting new LC-MS/MS method

Posted by Neoteryx on Apr 16, 2019 6:09:00 AM

A microsampling pioneer in Italy has recently developed, validated, and submitted for publication a new LC-MS/MS method for measuring concentrations of a range of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) using Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™) technology. Dr. Ugo de Grazia and his collaborators at Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Neurologico Carlo Besta Neurological Hospital in Milano have established a useful example for facilitating easier antiepileptic drug monitoring and for dealing extraction difficulties of small drugs on different physical-chemical properties.

pk monitoring: drugs with a narrow therapeutic index

Posted by Neoteryx on Mar 27, 2019 2:58:00 AM

 

Patient monitoring is always an important part of the medical process, but it’s particularly crucial when patients are using drugs with a narrow therapeutic index. Drugs with a narrow therapeutic index are drugs in which the dosage must be exact; otherwise, it could lead to serious negative reactions, failures, or dependency. Regular therapeutic drug monitoring is very important for patients taking these drugs.

VAMS meets PEth: changing the conversation around alcohol abuse

Posted by Neoteryx on Mar 22, 2019 3:51:00 AM

There are many cases in which it is necessary to test people for alcohol consumption, including organ transplants, driver’s license regranting, and more. Traditional testing methods involving hair or urine have obvious and subtle drawbacks, and traditional alcohol biomarkers can't always be used to make finer distinctions between teetotalers, social drinkers, and heavy drinkers or alcoholics.
