- Recommendation ID
- NICE recommends further research to validate the accuracy and precision of the My5-FU assay for the quantitative determination of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) at the lower end of its measuring range with analytical reference standard methods, including high-performance liquid chromatography and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry.
- Any explanatory notes
- Studies should investigate the comparability of the methods and determine the clinical significance of discordant results with reference to their impact on subsequent dose adjustments.
