Immundiagnostik’s IDKmonitor® Adalimumab Drug Level ELISA and Total ADA ELISA were recently featured in a publication by Plevris et al.

Publication Summary


A study at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, UK sought to discover the relationship between adalimumab drug levels and biologic remission during maintenance therapy for Crohn’s disease.

Using the IDKmonitor® Adalimumab Drug Level ELISA and IDKmonitor® Adalimumab Total ADA ELISA, researchers collected data on adalimumab drug and antibody levels in patients with Crohn’s disease who received adalimumab therapy and analyzed these values with respect to the severity of the disease.

The researchers found that patients in biologic remission from Crohn’s disease had significantly higher adalimumab values.

Biomarker Background: Adalimumab

Adalimumab is a biological therapy drug that acts as a tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) inhibitor. Because TNFα causes inflammation, an overabundance of it can lead to conditions like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, among others.

Adalimumab is used to treat these conditions and reduce the level of inflammation which can lead to symptoms.
