Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced in response to stress. It is essential for maintaining health and well-being; and leads to significant morbidity when deficient or present in excess. It is lipophillic and is transported bound to cortisol-binding globulin (CBG) and albumin; a small fraction (~10%) of total serum cortisol is unbound and biologically active. Serum cortisol assays measure total cortisol and their results can be misleading in patients with altered serum protein concentrations. Automated immunoassays are used to measure cortisol but lack specificity and show significant interassay differences...

INTRODUCTION: The ASSIST-CKD project is a national quality improvement programme, aiming to decrease the number of patients presenting late to renal services by enabling laboratories to review up to five years of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) results graphically, and report deteriorating patients to their general practitioner (GP). AIM: To assess the impact of the project on the laboratory, and of patient reporting on GP management and the local renal service...

Background TSH is used as the first line test of thyroid function. Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics recommend that Siemens Centaur reagents must be protected from light in the assay information and on reagent packaging. We have compared the effect of light exposure on results using Siemens TSH-3Ultra and FSH reagents. The TSH reagent includes fluoroscein thiocyanate (FITC) whereas the FSH reagent does not. Methods Three levels of quality controls were analysed using SiemensTSH-3Ultra and FSH reagent packs that had been kept protected from light or exposed to light at 6 hour intervals for 48 hours and then at 96 hours...

BACKGROUND A logical consequence of the introduction of robotics and high capacity analysers has seen a consolidation to larger units. This requires new structures and quality systems to ensure that laboratories deliver consistent and comparable results. METHODS A spreadsheet program was designed to accommodate results from up to 12 different Instruments/laboratories and present IQC data i.e. Levey-Jennings and Youden plots and comprehensive numerical tables of the performance of each item. Input of data was made possible by a "data loader" by which IQC data from the individual instruments could be transferred to the spreadsheet program on line...

The most commonly used techniques to measure vitamin D are automated immunoassays which are known to be affected by interferences, especially from immunoglobulins present in the patient's serum. We present a case of a patient with myeloma in whom interference with the vitamin D assay was identified. An eighty-three year old female, known to have IgG myeloma was found to have a high concentration of 25-OH vitamin D on a routine test without any signs of vitamin D toxicity. She was not taking vitamin D supplements or any other multivitamin preparation and had minimal sun exposure...

BACKGROUND: This analysis was aimed to assess the incidence, regression, and correlated factors of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in type 2 diabetes, which are poorly known. METHODS: NAFLD (defined as fatty liver index [FLI] score ≥60) in patients with type 2 diabetes and related factors was investigated in a nationwide database containing information from the Italian network of diabetes clinics. A 10% variation of FLI was the cut-off considered in the analyses of a cohort of 5030 patients which was separately conducted for those who developed, maintained or recovered from FLI-assessed NAFLD (FLI-NAFLD) over a 3-year period...

Diphtheria is an acute toxin-mediated superficial infection of the respiratory tract or skin caused by the aerobic gram-positive bacillus Corynebacterium diphtheriae. The epidemiology of infection and clinical manifestations of the disease vary in different parts of the world. Historical accounts of diphtheria epidemics have been described in many parts of the world since antiquity. Developed in the late 19th century, the diphtheria antitoxin (DAT) played a pivotal role in the history of public health and vaccinology prior to the advent of the diphtheria-tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine...

OBJECTIVE: To review the methodology employed in surgical mortality studies to control for potential confounders. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Nationwide hospital data are increasingly used to investigate surgical outcomes. However, poor data granularity and coding inaccuracies may lead to flawed findings. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review in accordance with the PRISMA statement in 6 major journals (NEJM, Lancet, BMJ, JAMA, Medical Care, Annals of Surgery) using PubMed from its inception until December 31, 2014...
