“My wife was diagnosed with cancer. Of course, I was devastated. I did what everyone else does, I spent hours on the internet researching everything. I didn’t like what I was reading. Doctors prescribe what they call maximum tolerated dose. Do you know what that means? They give as much as the body can tolerate. Even though studies show that after a certain point there is no additional benefit, and most certainly only increased adverse effects. Several studies point to a dosing method using TDM, it sounds reasonable. Give the patient an optimum dose, not too high, not too low. Why don’t all doctors use TDM instead of maximum tolerated dose?”

“Through Saladax's empathy and direct help, combined with a lot of leg work and persistence myself, we were able to determine if my wife was receiving the proper dose of 5-FU. Saladax connected us to a laboratory that could provide us 5-FU blood level testing.”
