Used to individualize dosing and balance therapeutic response with possible toxicity for patients on thiopurine therapy. Provides measurement of 6-TG (correlated with clinical response and leukopenia) and 6-MMP (correlated with hepatotoxicity) metabolites. Metabolite testing shuld not replace laboratory monitoring for toxicity.
6-TGN: 235 - 400 pmole/8x10(8) RBC, 6-MMPN: <5700 pmole/8x10(8) RBC.
- 6MMP and 6TG
- 6 Thioguanine (6 TG)
- 6 Methyl Mercaptopurine (6 MMP)
- PRO-PredictRx Metabolites
- Thiopurine Metabolites
- Imuran Metabolites
