InformTx Therapeutic Drug Monitoring

 

Make Evidence-Based Treatment Decisions

Use InformTx therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) assays for Remicade®, Humira®, Cimzia®, Entyvio®, Stelara®, Simponi®, and Inflectra® in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

What is InformTx?

InformTx therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) assays measure both drug and anti-drug antibody levels in a patient’s blood.

InformTx assays are available for seven biologic drugs used to treat IBD.

  • Remicade® (infliximab)
  • Humira® (adalimumab)
  • Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol)
  • Entyvio® (vedolizumab)
  • Stelara® (ustekinumab)
  • Simponi® (golimumab)
  • Inflectra® (infliximab-dyyb) (Pending availability—US Validation in Progress)

How does InformTx therapeutic drug monitoring work?

InformTx testing uses laboratory-validated ELISA technology. Unique for TDM in the United States, the InformTx report gives you easy-to-interpret results:

InformTx TDM requires five to seven milliliters of peripheral blood in a serum separator tube, and the results are reported within five business days.

What is Therapeutic Drug Monitoring? Why Order TDM?

InformTx helps you maximize the efficacy of biologic therapy. Use for all of your IBD patients—whenever you need therapeutic guidance.

  • Optimize at induction to ensure therapeutic drug levels
  • Monitor during maintenance to track drug and anti-drug antibody (ADAb) levels
  • Manage at loss of response/no response to identify reason

Many factors influence individual patient response to biologic therapy:

  • Systemic inflammation
  • Other drug therapies
  • Pharmacogenetic factors
  • Disease phenotype
  • Body mass
  • Immunogenicity
  • Immunomodulators
  • Presence of anti-drug antibodies

Individual response to biologic drugs varies greatly. Variability by patients leads to four patient types: responders, initial responders, partial responders, and non-responders. InformTx enables clinicians to manage all patient types, across seven different biologic drugs used to treat IBD.

Who is billed for InformTx testing?


Insurance is billed for the testing and the patient will owe the amount that is not covered.

CPT codes can be presented to patient’s insurance company to attain an estimation of coverage:
 CPT codes for all biologics include: 80299 (drug) 83520 (antibody).

The clinician’s practice can be billed if a contract is set up with Miraca Life Sciences to bill the practice. Please contact TDM@miracaLS.com or call 844.305.2166 for more information.

The entire Miraca team has been the most supportive client service team we have ever dealt with. After 18 years as a clinical supervisor with our practice, I have been most impressed with the accessibility and commitment of the entire team to facilitate any and all services available to help grow our practice with the most current tools available. From Amberlyn [Abbott], our sales rep, to Lindsay [Alexander] and Zac [Whaley], our technical support, we have never heard, ‘I don’t know’ or ‘We do not do that.’ They are the most dedicated team to find answers. If they don’t have them, they find them!!
