For more than a decade, the Pharmacodynamic Laboratory at Mississippi State University's College of Veterinary Medicine has conducted extensive research into pharmacodynamic monitoring of the immunosuppressive effects of cyclosporine and other immunosuppressive drugs. For more than five years, the lab has offered pharmacodynamic therapeutic drug monitoring to veterinarians in North America.

The presentation will outline the process of development and establishment of pharmacodynamic monitoring as a clinical tool, from original technique development to provision as a routine day-to-day service to veterinarians.
