Immunosuppressive drugs – diagnostic problems
Immunosuppressive drugs are essential for post-transplant therapy of vascular organs. The main purpose of their use is to suppress the recipient’s immune response so that the transplanted organ is not damaged and keeps its function. Immunosuppressive therapy must be implemented at the moment of transplantation and continued until the function of the transplanted organ ceases. Since these drugs have a narrow therapeutic index, it is necessary to monitor their concentration in the blood. This article is devoted to the problems and factors that may affect the abnormal concentration result of the selected immunosuppressive drugs in blood.
Keywords: kidney transplantation, immunosuppression, therapeutic monitoring of drugs.
