Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

Vedolizumab quantitation will be performed by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry on all samples. When this test is ordered and vedolizumab results are 15.0 mcg/mL or less, then testing for antibodies to vedolizumab will be performed at an additional charge.

 

This test includes quantitation and, if appropriate, antibody testing will be performed. The therapeutic thresholds for vedolizumab and optimal concentrations associated with good outcomes are not well established. The American Gastroenterology Association (AGA) does not have a formal guideline on optimal thresholds for vedolizumab at this time.

 

If both quantitation and antibody testing are needed, regardless of the quantitation results, order VEDOZ / Vedolizumab Quantitation with Antibodies, Serum.
