Abstract

This study indicates that therapeutic monitoring of serum tacrine concentrations might increase the possibility of responding to tacrine by some 68%. This represents an important contribution to the management of Alzheimer's disease patients with this drug, and may also be relevant to the use of the newer generation of cholinesterase inhibitors.
