  • Causa
    The manufacturer has determined that the affected lot may yield over-quantitation in patient samples. the manufacturer has conducted an internal assessment of product performance, and determined that over-recovery of whole blood assay results in the sub-therapeutic range by as much as 50% (for example, a reported assay result of 3.75 ng/ml instead of the actual whole blood concentration of 2.5 ng/ml). given standardised medication toxicity and close monitoring of patients for markers of efficacy, the risk of developing serious or long-range adverse health consequences due to a single reported erroneous everolimus concentration result is deemed to be negligible.
  • Acción
    Thermofisher is advising users to discontinue use and destroy any remaining stocks of the affected batch. A credit note will be issued for the affected product. A review of previously generated results should be considered by the laboratory director and treating physician.
