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

When this test is ordered, vedolizumab quantitation and testing for antibodies to vedolizumab will always be performed.

 

This test includes both quantitation and antibody testing on all specimens. 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 there is a known justification for performing both quantitation and antibody levels, this is the correct test to order. If there is not a known reason to perform the antibodies component, order VEDOL / Vedolizumab Quantitation with Reflex to Antibodies, Serum. VEDOL begins with quantitation and when quantitation results are 15.0 mcg/mL or less, testing for antibodies to vedolizumab will be performed.
