Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is a key component of patient management for a select group of drugs that demonstrate significant interindividual variability in their pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Using pharmacokinetically guided dose adjustment is also a critical piece of personalized medicine in many cases. This chapter covers the emergence and key historical points of TDM, as well as important general concepts for TDM in clinical care.
