FDA clears test to monitor kidney transplant patients

Waltham, MA-The FDA recently announced the clearance of the QMS Everolimus Immunoassay, a test that helps to manage potential organ rejection in kidney transplant patients. The test monitors the blood level of everolimus (Zortress), a drug that helps prevent rejection in kidney transplants. Thermo Fisher, the manufacturer of QMS Everolimus, demonstrated the performance of the test by comparing results from the new test with the results from reference tests used in the clinical trial of everolimus. When the clinical trial blood samples were tested with QMS Everolimus, the results, on average, were similar to those of the clinical trial reference test.
