Ferritin is an iron storage protein. It is the primary iron storage mechanism and is critical to iron homeostasis. As an iron store, ferritin has two roles 1.

  1. Provides a reserve of iron, which can be transported for the synthesis of molecules such as cytochromes, haemoglobin and iron-sulphur compounds.
  2. Safe-guards cells, DNA, lipids and proteins from the potential toxic effects of iron.

Ferritin is a vital component of iron homeostasis. It acts as as a ferroxidase, converting Fe(II) to Fe(III) as iron is internalised and sequestered in the ferritin mineral core. Iron is toxic in cellular systems due to its capacity to generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) which directly damages cells, DNA, lipids and proteins 1.

Iron deficiency without anaemia is a diagnostic challenge, as it commonly goes unrecognised for a long period of time as the patient is asymptomatic. Ferritin is the most sensitive and specific test used in the diagnosis of iron deficiency, especially when a patient presents with symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia, but their full blood count is normal 2.

Adult onset Still’s Disease (AOSD) is a rare systemic inflammatory disorder characterised by arthritis, fever and a typical skin rash. Elevated ferritin levels have been observed in 89% of patients with AOSD, with five times the normal level observed in over half of patients 3.

Elevated ferritin levels is associated with a poor outcome in patients with sepsis and can be used as a predictive marker of mortality along with current prognostic scores 4. Elevations of both ferritin and CRP during hospitalisation was associated with the highest mortality, followed by elevations of either biomarker alone (fig. 1) 5.

Ferritin is the most important acute phase reactant in the prediction of classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL). Ferritin correlates with the inflammatory activity of the cHL microenvironment, which could explain its prognostic impact. Elevated ferritin levels are associated with clinical features of aggressive disease and poor prognosis in cHL patients 6.

Chloroquine, an anti-malaria drug, has been selected to aid in treating those with COVID-19 following preliminary research and a limited study in Australia which highlighted that chloroquine showed promise in eradicating the virus. Moreover, Chinese research highlighted the efficacy and safety of chloroquine in treating pneumonia in COVID-19 patients 5.

It is believed that COVID-19 is expected to spread to areas where G6PDH deficiency is more common, however, serious consideration must be given to treatment decisions using chloroquine as chloroquine-induced haemolysis is the result to decreased G6PDH activity 6.

Albumin is the most abundant circulating protein found in plasma, representing approximately half of the total protein content in health human plasma. Synthesised by liver hepatocytes, it is rapidly excreted into the bloodstream, approximately 10gm – 15gm per day, with little remaining in the liver 1. It is responsible for the maintenance of colloidal osmotic pressure, provision of the majority of plasma antioxidant activity, and the binding of a variety of compounds 2.

A correlation between serum albumin concentrations and ill-health has been identified, with an astonishingly strong inverse correlation between serum albumin and mortality risk 2. The association of it with other confounding variables increase mortality (fig 1). The concentration is related to the rates of synthesis and catabolism, but also influenced by state of hydration, lymphatic return, external losses (burns), and rates of transcapillary escape. In starvation, both the synthesis and catabolism fall, whereas in nephrotic syndrome, synthesis rises and catabolism falls 3.

A direct, casual relationship between serum albumin and mortality is represented by arrow a or the sequence b, a. A non-casual, confounding relationship is represented by arrows b and c. A co-causal relationship is represented by arrows a and c.

Low circulating albumin is associated with an adverse metabolic profile characterised by increased adipose tissue inflammation, glucose concentrations, and adiposity. It inversely correlates with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) risk 4. Moreover, serum albumin concentrations are inversely correlated with the risk of ketosis in hospitalised patients with T2DM and may require the early initiation of insulin therapy to prevent complications. It is a promising prognostic marker in hospitalised diabetic patients with acute hyperglycaemia 5.

Low levels of serum albumin is common in cirrhosis and is associated with a reduced survival rate. In this setting, the native isoform can be severely reduced as a result of several post-transcriptional changes that impair the non-oncotic properties of the molecule 6.

Hypoalbuminemia status has been associated with the critically ill and mortality across several clinical settings. Hypoalbuminemia can potentially lead to the early recognition of severe disease associated with COVID-19 and can assist clinicians in making informed decisions for their patients 7.

About Lipase Testing

  • Clinical Significance
  • Physiological Significance

Elevated lipase concentrations 3-to-4-fold greater than the upper normal limit is indicative of pancreatitis, however, the degree of elevations does not correlate with the severity of the disease 2, 3.

In pancreatic dysfunction, lipase concentrations rise between 4 and 6 hours, peaking at 48 hours and returning to baseline within 8 to 14 days. It has a half-life of 6.7 to 13.7 hours in plasma. The half-life of amylase (another assay utilised in the diagnosis of pancreatic dysfunction) is less, however, lipase is filtered by the glomerulus and reabsorbed by the tubules which may contribute towards the longer half-life of lipase.

Lipase offers a few advantages over amylase including: a slightly better specificity, greater sensitivity for patients presenting late, due to the longer half-life, and greater sensitivity in alcoholic pancreatitis 4.

Furthermore, for prolonged longitudinal injuries, lipase activity tends to be more sensitive compared to amylase as lipase concentrations within the zymogen granules are approximately 4.5 times than those of amylase. Consequently, recurring injuries are more likely to be recognised due to the leakage of lipase into the bloodstream. Moreover, lipase concentrations are less affected by intestinal injury or renal dysfunction compared to amylase 2.

Derived from zymogen granules of pancreatic acinar cells, lipase is involved in the digestion of lipids for the subsequent absorption in the small intestine 1, 2. The pancreas is located in the anterior abdominal cavity adjacent to the liver, duodenum and stomach to allow the secretion of digestive enzymes into the small intestine, and to convert ingesta into absorbable lipids, carbohydrates and proteins. The exocrine pancreas provides a microenvironment for pancreatic islet cells. The pancreatic islet cells provide the embedded endocrine function of the pancreas which in turn enables the hepatic and peripheral tissues to modulate blood glucose levels and other functions 2.

Clinical Significance

Alpha-I-acid-glycoprotein (also known as Orosomucoid) is an acute-phase reactant synthesised in the liver in response to inflammation and tissue damage. The normal range for healthy individuals is 50-120 mg/dl. However, markedly higher levels are observed in a number of conditions such as inflammatory disease, acute myocardial infarction, trauma, pregnancy and surgery. Serum AAG levels also provide a useful diagnostic tool in neonates with bacterial infections as most infected neonates produce increased levels.

Acusera Infectious Disease Serology Controls

Randox Quality Control are pleased to announce the launch of our new Infectious Disease Serology Internal Quality Controls. Our portfolio includes Lyme Disease, ToRCH, EBV, HIV, HAV, HTLV, CMV, VZV and much more.

All samples are provided in a user-friendly, liquid ready-to-use format. This significantly reduces preparation time and the risk of pipetting errors.

There is approximately 1 million people in the USA living with HIV and around 15% of them are unaware they are infected (CDC, March 2019). Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that around 39,000 new HIV infections are reported per year.

The impact of not only HIV but all infectious diseases is getting much greater. Therefore, laboratories now play a much more important role in providing accurate test results. This is a key component in controlling the spread of infections.

Reporting a false positive result has its own obvious implications, however, what about the consequences of reporting a false negative. This can be just as devastating to a person in terms of the treatment they will receive and even personal lifestyle changes for the patient in question.

> Ensures better outcomes guaranteeing timely therapeutic intervention

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)]

 Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is described as “the most complex and polymorphic of the lipoprotein particles” 1. The biggest challenge that exists surrounding Lp(a) measurement is the heterogeneity of the apo(a) isoforms. Standardisation across calibrators is vital as the repeated KIV-2 units in Lp(a) act as multiple epitopes. A lack of standardisation could result in the underestimation of Lp(a) associated CVD risk 2.

Lp(a) assays that are standardised to the WHO/IFCC reference material, transferring values from mg/dl to nmol/l are more uniformed. The Denka Seiken Lp(a) assay is the most reliable commercially available Lp(a) assay, because 2:

  1. The isoform size variations are reduced as a range of calibrators from separate pools of serum were used which covered a range of Lp(a) concentrations.
  2. The isoform size and concentrations are inversely correlated better matching calibrants with test samples.
  3. Methods based on the Denka Lp(a) assay, calibrated in nmol/l and traceable to the WHO/IFCC reference material produced an acceptable bias compared with the Northwest Lipid Metabolism and Diabetes Research Laboratory (NLMDRKL) gold standard method.

 

HEART UK advocate the widespread clinical utility of Lp(a) to refine the CVD risk assessment. In doing so, HEART UK developed ten statements on Lp(a) (Table 1) utilising the 2016 ACC/AHA Clinical Guideline Recommendation Classification System, to assess the strength of the recommendation and aid in guiding the phrasing of the recommendation 2.

Key Features of the Randox Lp(a) Assay

  • The Randox Lp(a) assay is one of the only methodologies on the market that detects the non-variable part of the Lp(a) molecule and therefore suffers minimal size related bias providing more accurate and consistent results. The Randox Lp(a) kit is standardised to the WHO/IFCC reference material (IFCC SRM 2B) and is closest in terms of agreement to the ELISA reference method.
  • Five-point calibrator with accuracy-based assigned target values, and control are available, accurately reflecting the heterogeneity of the apo(a) isoforms present in the general population and offering a complete testing package.
  • Measuring units are available in nmol/l which is more uniformed and recommended by HEART UK.
  • Immunoturbidimetric method is highly sensitive and specific for the detection of Lp(a) in serum and plasma.
  • Excellent correlation co-efficient of r=0.995 when compared against other commercially available methods.
  • Excellent within run precision of <2.54%.
  • Liquid ready-to-use format for convenience and ease-of-use.
  • Applications available detailing instrument-specific settings for the convenient use of the Randox Lp(a) assay on a wide range of clinical chemistry analysers.

H-FABP in CSA-AKI Testing

Cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI) is a well-recognised postoperative complication of cardiac surgery and is the second most common cause of AKI in the ICU, occurring in up to 30% of patients. Higher pre-operative values of H-FABP were associated with a higher risk of developing AKI. Following adjustments of certain patient characteristics, the association of pre-operative H-FABP with the development of AKI remained significant. In fact, the researchers observed that a 1 unit increase in log H-FABP was associated with a 3-fold increase in the odds of developing AKI.

Acusera Infectious Disease Serology Controls

Randox Quality Control are pleased to announce the launch of our new Infectious Disease Serology Internal Quality Controls. Our portfolio includes Lyme Disease, ToRCH, EBV, HIV, HAV, HTLV, CMV, VZV and much more.

All samples are provided in a user-friendly, liquid ready-to-use format. This significantly reduces preparation time and the risk of pipetting errors.

There is approximately 1 million people in the USA living with HIV and around 15% of them are unaware they are infected (CDC, March 2019). Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that around 39,000 new HIV infections are reported per year.

The impact of not only HIV but all infectious diseases is getting much greater. Therefore, laboratories now play a much more important role in providing accurate test results. This is a key component in controlling the spread of infections.

Reporting a false positive result has its own obvious implications, however, what about the consequences of reporting a false negative. This can be just as devastating to a person in terms of the treatment they will receive and even personal lifestyle changes for the patient in question.

Adiponectin

Adiponectin (adipocyte complement-related protein of 30kDa (Acrp30)) is an adipokine (protein hormone) produced and secreted by the adipose tissue, an endocrine organ. Adiponectin acts as a messenger in the communication of adipose tissue and metabolic organs. In doing so, Adiponectin suppresses the production of glucose in the liver through inhibiting the genes involved in glucose production and enhances fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle 2. Consequently, Adiponectin is a strong protector against several pathological events in various cells through inhibiting inflammation, suppressing cell death and enhancing cell survival. Adiponectin has been identified as having pleiotropic functions widely associated with anti-atherogenic, anti-diabetic, cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory effects.

H-FABP in CSA-AKI Testing

Cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI) is a well-recognised postoperative complication of cardiac surgery and is the second most common cause of AKI in the ICU, occurring in up to 30% of patients. Higher pre-operative values of H-FABP were associated with a higher risk of developing AKI. Following adjustments of certain patient characteristics, the association of pre-operative H-FABP with the development of AKI remained significant. In fact, the researchers observed that a 1 unit increase in log H-FABP was associated with a 3-fold increase in the odds of developing AKI.

Open Channel Reagents

12 November 2019

Open Channel Reagents

There are many different manufacturers of clinical chemistry analysers, who provide their users with extensive test menus. However, it is very difficult for these manufacturers to meet every need in a clinical lab.

Open channel reagents can help to fill any gaps in these test menus, thus providing clinical laboratories with an alternative whilst securing controls and reagents that aren’t available from their instrument provider.

Open channel reagents give laboratories the ability to bring new diagnostic tests in-house and improve patient care by reducing turnaround times, which in the long run allows for faster diagnosis and quicker treatment plan decisions.

Although open channel reagents offer a very important service to clinical laboratories, it is imperative to carefully evaluate suppliers on the quality of their assays, as well as the service and support they provide – ultimately ensuring that their reagents prove successful on another manufacturer’s clinical chemistry analyser.

Benefits of open channel

The main benefit to laboratories in introducing open channel reagents is the ability to expand their test menu without expanding their laboratory, meaning there is no need to purchase additional equipment or analysers.

Many laboratories will be outsourcing or sending tests to a reference lab. This obviously has cost implications. By bringing the test in-house laboratories can make significant savings in both cost and turnaround time.

For some markers, although instrument manufacturers might offer the test it might not always be the most superior or the best method. Open channel or third-party reagents can sometimes offer a more accurate or superior method ultimately improving the accuracy of patient testing. This will be especially important to private laboratories in which the public are paying for this service. It also helps private labs stand out from their competition.

Obstacles to open channel suppliers

Despite the many benefits of open channel reagents there can be some challenges or obstacles to implementing this type of reagent.  For example, the packaging may not be compatible with the laboratory’s specific analyser, meaning an extra step for laboratory staff and the need to pour the reagent into a component suitable for the analyser. These obstacles in most cases can be easily overcome and the benefits often outweigh the challenges.

Considerations

If a lab is considering introducing an open channel supplier, there are a few things to consider and evaluate. Firstly, laboratories should ensure whether the clinical chemistry analyser is locked or requires special packaging. In some instances, the instrument is provided with the benefit of fully open channel capabilities, however some manufacturers require to be contacted in order to implement this functionality.

How Randox can help

At Randox we can introduce cost savings for your laboratory and reduce the risk of errors occurring, ultimately ensuring confidence in patient test results whilst reducing time and labour.

Randox Reagents offer an extensive range of third party reagents that can be used on a wide range of clinical analysers, most of which are liquid ready-to-use. At Randox we are one of the few suppliers offering niche tests including sdLDL, Adiponectin and Cystatin C. All diagnostic reagents are presented in bottles which fit easily onto your analyser avoiding the need to pour the reagents into dedicated bottles. A wide range of validated analyser applications are available to ensure ease of programming and confidence in results.

The vision of Randox is one of ambition, innovation and commitment to improving health worldwide. We firmly believe that the healthcare of tomorrow depends on the innovations developed today. As a world leader in the in-vitro diagnostics industry with over 35 years’ experience, Randox products offer clinicians and physicians the most comprehensive insight into patient diagnosis allowing for more effective disease management and treatment.
