LISA-TRACKER Tocilizumab is an enzyme linked immunoassay (ELISA) for the quantitative determination of Tocilizumab (anti-IL6-R) in human serum samples.

Tocilizumab is indicated for the treatment of patient with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis showing inadequate response to conventional disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and anti-TNFα agents. Tocilizumab is a humanised monoclonal antibody (IgG1 isotype) directed against human IL-6 receptor (IL-6R).  During the course of the treatment, patients treated with Tocilizumab can develop antibodies directed against Tocilizumab.
