This test includes Serial Monitoring.
Expected Turnaround Time
12 - 16 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.

Therapeutic monitoring of rituximab and antidrug antibody development for individuals with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and rheumatoid arthritis. This test provides rituximab drug concentration as well as the level of anti-rituximab antibodies.
Failure of rituximab therapy may not always be due to the presence of anti-rituximab antibodies. Conversely, the absence of anti-rituximab antibodies does not guarantee positive response to treatment.
This test was developed, and its performance characteristics determined, by LabCorp. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
