A titer is a measurement of the amount or concentration of a substance in a solution. It usually refers to the amount of medicine or antibodies found in a patient’s blood.
Blood titer measurements can be very helpful in determining medical treatment. Antibody titers can†tell the doctor if the patient has immunity to diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, small pox, and hepatitis. Medication titers can tell if a person is receiving too much medication.
