IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Therapeutic Drug, Anticonvulsant, Valproic Acid
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum, plasma) to measure levels of total valproic acid (a fatty acid used in the treatment of epilepsy and bipolar disorders) present in the sample. Valproic acid is highly bound (about 93%) to proteins in plasma, but only free valproic acid is bioactive. Reagents for measuring total valproic acid are used to monitor the drug levels in patients undergoing treatment, either to determine the adequacy of drug treatment or to diagnose a drug overdose or drug-related toxicity.
