Cyclosporine A levels in specimens drawn 2 hours post-dose may estimate the AUC better than trough specimens. The optimal therapeutic range for a given patient may differ from this suggested range based on the indication for therapy, treatment phase (initiation or maintenance), use in combination with other drugs, time of specimen collection relative to prior dose, type of transplanted organ, and/or the therapeutic approach of the transplant center. A suggested target range for renal transplant is 800-1700 ng/mL. A suggested target range for liver transplant is 600-1000 ng/mL. The higher ranges represent concentrations immediately post-transplant and the lower ranges represent concentrations during the maintenance phase.
