Therapeutic Drug Monitoring - TDM

Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) refers to the clinical practice of measuring drugs and/or metabolites in blood or serum/plasma at a specific time point to determine if a patient’s drug concentrations are within the therapeutic range, and are neither subtherapeutic nor potentially toxic. The purpose of TDM is to optimize dosing to target a therapeutic plasma drug concentration while minimizing toxicity.
