Near-patient test for C-reactive protein in general practice: assessment of clinical, organizational, and economic outcomes. (1/890)

BACKGROUND: The benefits of near-patient, point-of-care tests have not been fully examined. We have assessed the clinical, organizational, and economic outcomes of implementing a near-patient test for C-reactive protein (CRP) in general practice. METHODS: In a randomized crossover trial during intervention periods, general practitioners (GPs) were allowed to measure CRP within 3 min, using NycoCard(R) CRP. During control periods, they had to mail blood samples for CRP measurements to the hospital laboratory and received test results 24-48 h later. Twenty-nine general practice clinics participated (64 GPs), and 1853 patients were included in the study. Results were evaluated at both the level of participating GPs and the level of included patients. RESULTS: For participating GPs, the overall use of erythrocyte sedimentation rates (ESRs) decreased by 8% (95% confidence interval, 1-14%) during intervention periods, and the number of blood samples mailed to the hospital laboratory decreased by 6% (1-10%). No reduction in the prescription of antibiotics was seen. The proportion of study patients having a follow-up telephone consultation was reduced from 63% to 53% (P = 0. 0001), and patients with CRP concentrations >50 mg/L had their antibiotic treatments started earlier when CRP was measured in general practices (P = 0.0161). CONCLUSION: The implementation of the near-patient CRP test was cost-effective mainly on the basis of a reduction in the use of services from the hospital laboratory by GPs. If the implementation is followed by education and clinical guidelines, opportunities exist for additional reduction in the use of ESR and for a more appropriate use of antibiotics.  (+info)

Patients with thrombocytosis have normal or slightly elevated thrombopoietin levels. (2/890)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The distinction between clonal and reactive thrombocytoses is a frequent problem and implies different therapeutic options. As thrombopoietin (TPO) is the main regulator of megakaryocytopoiesis and thrombopoiesis, we measured TPO levels in patients with thrombocytosis in an attempt to understand the regulation and potential utility of distinguishing thrombocytoses. DESIGN AND METHODS: Serum TPO levels, platelet counts, mean platelet volume, hemoglobin, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and age were evaluated in 25 patients with clonal thrombocytosis (15 with essential thrombocythemia, 6 with polycythemia vera and 4 with chronic myeloid leukemia) and in 50 patients with reactive thrombocytosis distributed in three groups: 1) patients in post-surgical states; 2) patients with solid tumors; and 3) patients with inflammatory diseases. RESULTS: TPO levels were slightly increased in patients with clonal (135+/-50 pg/mL) and reactive (147+/-58 pg/mL) thrombocytosis compared with controls (121+/-58 pg/mL). Analyzing the different groups, patients with essential thrombocythemia had the lowest TPO levels (120+/-28 pg/mL) and patients with solid tumors the highest levels (162+/-59 pg/mL). Patients with clonal thrombocytosis were older, had higher platelet counts, mean platelet volume and hemoglobin, and lower erythrocyte sedimentation rate than patients with reactive thrombocytosis. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Minor differences were observed in TPO levels between patients with primary and secondary thrombocytoses. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, but not TPO levels, may be a useful tool for discriminating both types of thrombocytoses.  (+info)

Effect of leukocytapheresis therapy using a leukocyte removal filter in Crohn's disease. (3/890)

Eighteen patients with active Crohn's disease were treated with one leukocytapheresis session per week for a five-week intensive therapy, decreasing to one leukocytapheresis session per month for five sessions of initial maintenance therapy. Nutritional indices, inflammatory reactions, flow cytometry profiles, and cytokine production were also assessed before and after the intensive and initial maintenance therapy. Nine of the patients (50%) attained remission at the end of the intensive therapy. The nine non-remission patients had exhibited longer periods of suffering and more severely affected sites prior to the therapy. In 14 of 18 patients (77.8%), the nutritional indices, Internal Organization of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IOIBD) score and Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) improved from the pretherapy levels, but only the remission group (50%) showed improvement in C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). The remission group showed significantly higher pretherapy CD4+ CD45+ cell ratios and interleukin-2 (IL-2) production than the non-remission group, and significantly lower activated cells.  (+info)

HLA-DRB1 alleles associated with polymyalgia rheumatica in northern Italy: correlation with disease severity. (4/890)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of HLA-DRB1 alleles with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) in a Mediterranean country and to explore the role of HLA-DRB1 genes in determining disease severity. METHODS: A five year prospective follow up study of 92 consecutive PMR patients diagnosed by the secondary referral centre of rheumatology of Reggio Emilia, Italy was conducted. HLA-DRB1 alleles were determined in the 92 patients, in 29 DR4 positive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, and in 148 controls from the same geographical area by polymerase chain reaction amplification and oligonucleotide hybridisation. RESULTS: No significant differences were observed in the frequencies of HLA-DRB1 types and in the expression of HLA-DRB 70-74 shared motif between PMR and controls. The frequency of the patients with double dose of epitope was low and not significantly different in PMR and in controls. No significant differences in the distribution of HLA-DR4 subtypes were observed between DR4+ PMR, DR+ RA, and DR4+ controls. Results of the univariate analysis indicated that an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) at diagnosis > 72 mm 1st h, the presence of HLA-DR1, DR10, rheumatoid epitope, and the type of rheumatoid epitope were significant risk factors associated with relapse/recurrence. Cox proportional hazards modelling identified two variables that independently increased the risk of relapse/recurrence: ESR at diagnosis > 72 mm 1st h (RR=1.5) and type 2 (encoded by a non-DR4 allele) rheumatoid epitope (RR=2.7). CONCLUSION: These data from a Mediterranean country showed no association of rheumatoid epitope with PMR in northern Italian patients. A high ESR at diagnosis and the presence of rheumatoid epitope encoded by a non-DR4 allele are independent valuable markers of disease severity.  (+info)

Relationship between urinary pyridinium cross-links, disease activity and disease subsets of ankylosing spondylitis. (5/890)

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to determine the urinary levels of pyridinium cross-links and urinary beta-isomerized fragments derived from the C-telopeptide of the alpha1 chain of type I collagen (beta-CTX) as markers of bone resorption in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), and to study their relationship to markers of disease activity [erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)] and to disease subsets of this condition. METHODS: The serum calcium, osteocalcin (OC), parathormone (PTH), 25 OHD3 levels, beta-CTX and the urinary combined free pyridinolines (f-Pyr + f-Dpyr), urinary free deoxypyridinoline (f-Dpyr) and urinary free pyridinoline (f-Pyr) were evaluated and compared in 32 AS patients and 25 controls. Bone mineral density (BMD) was evaluated at the lumbar spine and the femoral neck. RESULTS: The serum markers of bone metabolism (serum calcium, PTH, 25 OHD3 and OC) were in the normal range in the AS group. AS patients had a lowered lumbar spine BMD (P = 0.01) (corresponding T score: P = 0.03), but femoral neck BMD did not differ significantly between AS and controls (P = 0.08) (corresponding T score: P = 0.11). There was no difference in the urinary levels of pyridinium cross-links and beta-CTX between AS patients and controls. A positive correlation between ESR, (f-Pyr + f-Dpyr) (r = 0.42; P = 0.018) and f-Dpyr (r = 0.49; P = 0.005) was observed. In the different disease subsets of AS, we found that patients with peripheral involvement had higher (f-Pyr + f-Dpyr) (P = 0.04) and f-Dpyr levels (P = 0.04), patients with early disease had elevated (f-Pyr + f-Dpyr) (P = 0.01), f-Dpyr (P = 0.02) and f-Pyr (P = 0.01) levels, and that those with raised ESR had enhanced f-Dpyr (P = 0.009) excretion. Patients were then stratified according to disease duration, peripheral involvement and sex, and this allowed us to observe that only urinary f-Dpyr remained elevated in patients independently from these variables and that raised ESR is the more relevant parameter for explaining this high level of excretion. CONCLUSION: We conclude that there was no difference in the levels of urinary pyridinium cross-links and beta-CTX between AS and controls. However, urinary excretion of some of these collagen compounds was enhanced in subgroups of AS, mainly in patients with raised ESR. Thus, AS patients with laboratory evidence of active disease could have a higher risk of bone loss.  (+info)

The influence of a partially HLA-matched blood transfusion on the disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis. (6/890)

OBJECTIVE: Based on the immunosuppressive effects of blood transfusions in organ transplantation, we determined the effect of a blood transfusion on disease activity of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHOD: In this double-blind pilot study, 40 patients with active RA were randomly assigned to receive a HLA-DRB1-matched blood transfusion (n = 30) or placebo (n = 10). Disease activity was scored according to the American College of Rheumatology response criteria during 6 months of follow-up. RESULTS: After 1 month and 6 months, respectively, 6 and 16% of patients fulfilled the response criteria in the blood transfusion group compared to none and 30%, respectively, in the placebo group. Following correction for the increase in haemoglobin levels, a majority of the response parameters in the blood transfusion group showed significant improvement compared to the placebo group. CONCLUSION: A DRB1-matched blood transfusion shows improvement of symptoms in several RA patients. Additional studies are required to identify blood transfusion regimens that enhance the potential for therapeutic responses.  (+info)

Inflammatory status as a main determinant of outcome in patients with unstable angina, independent of coagulation activation and endothelial cell function. (7/890)

AIMS: Inflammation, endothelial cell function and the coagulation system have been demonstrated to be involved in the onset and course of unstable angina. Whether a proinflammatory state independently determines outcome is unknown and has not been determined yet in a clinically well defined study population of consecutive patients admitted with unstable angina. METHODS AND RESULTS: Markers of inflammation, coagulation activation and endothelial cell function were determined on admission in blood of 211 consecutive patients with severe unstable angina and were related to the in-hospital course. Refractory unstable angina occurred in 76 patients (36%) during their hospital stay. In a univariate analysis, C-reactive protein (P = 0.03), fibrinogen (P < 0.001) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (P = 0.001) levels were significantly higher in patients with refractory unstable angina, when compared with patients who had an uneventful clinical course. The odds ratios (95% CI) adjusted for age, sex, body mass index, smoking behaviour and cholesterol levels of the occurrence of refractory unstable angina for patients in the highest quartile compared with patients in the lowest quartile of inflammatory markers were 2.19 (0.94-5.11) for C-reactive protein, 2.83 (1.13-7.10) for fibrinogen and 4.72 (1.70-13.09) for the erythrocyte sedimentation rate. The findings were not affected by the presence or absence of myocardial necrosis or the interval between onset of angina and blood collection. No association was found between markers of coagulation activation or markers of endothelial cell function, and in-hospital outcome. CONCLUSION: We found that in a clinically well-defined study population of patients with severe unstable angina, a proinflammatory state is an important and independent determinant of short-term outcome. The data strengthen the importance of inflammation in this syndrome.  (+info)

Genotyping for disease associated HLA DR beta 1 alleles and the need for early joint surgery in rheumatoid arthritis: a quantitative evaluation. (8/890)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the value of HLA DR beta 1 disease associated epitope (DAE) and erythrocyte sedimentation (ESR) in predicting the need for major joint replacement in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Sixty five RA patients who had undergone hip, knee or shoulder arthroplasty within 15 years of disease onset and 65 who had not. HLA DR beta 1 genotype was determined by polymerase chain reaction. ESR at first hospital visit was noted. RESULTS: Significantly more patients with two DAE required surgery, (32% v 9%), chi 2 = 13.9, p = 0.001, odds ratio = 5.4 (95% CI: 1.8, 16). Sensitivity was poor, 32%, specificity high, 91%. Presentation ESR was higher in surgery patients compared with non-surgery patients, 52 mm 1st h v 25 mm 1st h, p < 0.001, but was independent of DAE status. Sensitivity of an ESR of 30 mm 1st h was 75%, specificity 53%. CONCLUSION: The presence of two DAE is a risk factor for major joint surgery in RA and is independent of ESR, whereas in those with one or no DAE, a high ESR is an important predictor.  (+info)

We conducted this study to determine the prevalence of elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in chronic hemodialysis patients and to evaluate the dialytic and serum factors that might explain this elevation. ESR was measured using the Westergren method immediately before and immediately after dialysis sessions in 200 stable (i.e. with no other obvious systemic illnesses) hemodialysis patients and in 50 hemodialysis patients during concurrent acute illnesses. ESR was found to be > 25 mm/h in 180 (90%) patients, >50 mm/h in 76 (38%) and > 100 mm/h in 64(32%) patients. The mean pre dialysis ESR was not significantly different from the mean post dialysis ESR (77 38 Vs 78 35 mm/h, respectively). The mean ESR in the 50 patients during acute illnesses was not significantly different from the mean ESR measured during the stable state. Among all dialytic, biochemical and serum factors that were studied in this population, fibrinogen was the only factor that independently correlated significantly ...
A 26 year old female has been referred to our clinic with right sided hip pain of sub acute onset. Her pain worsened with movement and weight bearing. On clinical examination, she had restricted range of movement with pain and mild joint tenderness. On plain x-ray she found to have AVN of right femoral head suggested by classical crescent sign with preserved articular margins on plain film and underwent extensive evaluation for a cause. Apart from malaise, fatiguability and moderately elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) of 65 mm in 1st h no other symptom or laboratory feature could be found. Her hemoglobin level was 10.6 g/dL and white cell count, platelet count, C-reactive protein was normal. After 6 months she presented with a similar pain in left hip and subsequent work up revealed AVN of left femoral head as well on plain x-ray and findings were similar to the previous right sided hip joint. Other than above presentation she had no other complains at that point. Her past medical ...
Results The spectrum of valvular involvements were aortic regurgitation (11,50%,), mitral regurgitation (1,4.5%), aortic stenosis (1,4.5%), mitral stenosis (1,4.5%) and multiple valvular disease (7,36.5%). 64.7% of the aortic regurgitation patients had aortic root dilation. Heart failure was the commonest manifestation (63.6%). Patients with aortic regurgitation were more likely to be positive for elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate than those without aortic regurgitation (i58.8% vs. 0, P=0.04). Glucocorticoid and/or immunosuppression were administered on 11 (50%) patients. One (4.5%) patient received Tocilizumab injection. Surgeries were performed on 12 (54.5%) patients with cardiac architecture changing reversibly within one week after operation (P,0.05, Table 1). Three patients had aortic valve detachment or perivalvular leakage 6-36 months after primary valvular surgery. Three patients died during 10-46 month follow-up, with none of whom taking any anti-inflammatory treatments. ...
A 69-year-old man visited our clinic complaining of dyspnea. A chest radiograph revealed pleural effusion, and an electrocardiogram revealed complete atrioventricular block. Subsequent echocardiography showed normal left ventricular function, but marked thickening (12mm) of the wall localized to the sinus of Valsalva (Fig. 1A). Computed tomography (CT) also revealed similar findings (Fig. 1B). Blood tests revealed an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and positron emission CT showed accumulation corresponding to the thickened wall at the sinus of Valsalva (Fig. 1C). At first, we diagnosed aortic intramural hematoma and treated with aggressive blood-pressure control, but during the first several weeks of treatment the thickened wall did not decrease at all. Subsequently, the patient started to complain of severe throbbing headaches, and tenderness of the temporal region. Then, based on the diagnostic criteria of the American College of Rheumatology, temporal arteritis could be diagnosed. It ...
Laboratory studies, including a complete blood count and blood chemistry panel showed mild leukocytosis (white blood cell count, 11,140/mm3) and increased liver enzymes (aspartate transaminase, 138 U/L; alanine transaminase, 101 U/L; lactate dehydrogenase, 2,319 U/L). An elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (26 mm/hr) and an elevated C-reactive protein (10.88 mg/dL) level were noted. T1-weighted contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed a slightly enhanced mass lesion in the left cavernous sinus (Fig. 1). Cerebrospinal fluid studies, including cytology, were normal (pressure, 140 mm H2O; white blood cells, 0; glucose, 56.5 mg/dL; protein, 39 mg/dL). On the 3rd hospital day, we did positron emission tomography using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET), which disclosed intense FDG accumulation in multiple organs, including abdominal and pelvic organs (large intestines, rectum, peritoneum, omentum, mesentery, and left adrenal gland), skeletal system (maxilla, mandible, ...
A 17-year-old girl previously in good health presented with a 2-month history of recurrent, high-grade fever; general fatigue; anorexia; a 10-kg weight loss; and multiple, painful, reddish skin lesions on the lower abdomen. Some lesions were ulcerated, with an oily yellowish brown discharge. A systemic review was unremarkable other than bleeding from the nose. Her medical and family histories were unremarkable. On examination, the patient was pale, jaundiced, and febrile (temperature of 39 degrees C). She had enlarged lymph nodes in the axillary and inguinal areas. There was moderate hepatosplenomegaly. Local skin examination revealed multiple erythematous, tender, and firm subcutaneous nodules of variable size (1-2 cm) on the lower abdomen. Some nodules were ulcerated, with oily yellowish brown discharge and overlying ecchymosis (Figures 1 and 2). Mucous membranes were free of lesions. Laboratory investigations showed pancytopenia, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (,80 mm/h), normal ...
Amiodarone 400 mg daily ST denies the use of herbal products or OTC medications. He denies tobacco use but admits to social drinking. His family history is significant for hypertension. The pulmonologist for whom ST works is concerned about STs symptoms and performs a physical examination, along with laboratory work. STs vital signs are reported as follows: blood pressure, 150/95 mm Hg; heart rate, 90 beats/min, temp 98.6°F, and respiratory rate, 20 breaths/min. The exam is unremarkable, with no signs of pulmonary congestion, lower extremity edema, or signs of infection. The basic metabolic panel and complete blood count are within normal limits. The only lab result found to be outside of normal limits is an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). The pulmonologist is concerned that STs medications may be causing pulmonary problems. He performs a bronchoscopy to obtain a lung biopsy, which demonstrates diffuse alveolar damage and fibrosis. Should the pulmonologist recommend any ...
A chronic, relapsing, inflammatory, and often febrile multisystemic disorder of connective tissue, characterized principally by involvement of the skin, joints, kidneys, and serosal membranes. It is of unknown etiology, but is thought to represent a failure of the regulatory mechanisms of the autoimmune system. The disease is marked by a wide range of system dysfunctions, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and the formation of LE cells in the blood or bone marrow.
Parrillo et al81 conducted the first immunosuppressive trial of patients presenting with unexplained dilated cardiomyopathy. Patients were classified as reactive or nonreactive on the basis of histopathology (fibroblastic or lymphocytic infiltrate), immunoglobulin deposition on EMB, a positive gallium scan, or an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Reactive patients treated with prednisone (60 mg daily) had a statistically greater likelihood of achieving a predefined end point of an increase in LVEF ≥5% at 3 months. This improvement was not sustained at 6 or 9 months because the reactive control group showed comparable spontaneous improvement in function. It should be noted that the prednisone dose was decreased to 60 mg on alternate days in the reactive group after 3 months, and this change may have confounded later end point analyses.. The Myocarditis Treatment Trial6 randomized 111 patients with biopsy-verified myocarditis to receive placebo or an immunosuppressive regimen of ...
BACKGROUND: We evaluated the Test 1 (ALIFAX CO, Italy), an automatic erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) analyzer which could eliminate one hour test interval and troublesome sample preparation. METHODS: Precision was analyzed with 10 repeat tests in 5 different ESR ranges. Storage effect was evaluated at refrigerated (4degrees C) and room temperature with samples in two different ESR range at 0 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours and 24 hours. And comparability study to modified Westergren method was done. Reference range assessment was done with 360 healthy population (180 males and 180 females). RESULTS: Within-run precision were varying with different mean ESR values; 19.00% at ESR 2.2 mm/hr, 5.97% at 13.2 mm/hr, 2.82% at 34.6 mm/hr, 4.45% at 66 mm/hr, and 2.42% at 115.6 mm/hr. Storage effect was significant at room temperature after 8 hours and no significant storage effect was observed even with 24 hour storage at 4degrees C. Correlation with modified Westergren method was good ...
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) can be defined as the rate at which red blood cells or erythrocytes sediment in a period of one hour. ESR is usually measured in millimeter per hour (mm/hr) and a value above 100 mm/hr indicates a disease condition, such as a disease that causes inflammation, active infection, cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, blood disease, diabetes, and collagen vascular disease. However, ESR is a non-specific test for inflammation and is used in conjunction with other tests such as C-reactive protein. Normal ESR result does not rule out the possibility of inflammation. Similarly, an elevated ESR without any symptoms of the disease does not aid in making any medical decision. ESR analyzers are devices employed to measure the sedimentation rate of erythrocytes for an accurate reading. Automated ESR analyzers need to comply with the 2011-published Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) guidelines for measuring ESR. The analyzer works on the basic principle of ...

OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to explore inflammation, measured as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), as a predictor for the development of heart failure (HF).. BACKGROUND: In recent years, evidence of the importance of inflammation in the pathophysiology of HF has emerged, and various inflammatory markers have been found to predict future HF. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is an inexpensive and easily accessible marker of systemic inflammation, but to this date it is unknown whether ESR predicts subsequent HF.. METHODS: In a community-based prospective study of 2,314 middle-aged men free from HF, myocardial infarction, and valvular disease at baseline, ESR was analyzed in multivariable models together with established risk factors for HF (hypertension, diabetes, electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy, smoking, obesity, and serum cholesterol) and hematocrit.. RESULTS: A total of 282 men developed HF during a median follow-up time of 30 years. In Cox proportional hazards analyses, ...

Purpose: The purposes of our study were to determine normative C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) values from a retrospective review of patients with and without infection after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and to determine CRP and ESR threshold levels that can serve as diagnostic indicators of infection. We also tried to draw a curve of CRP and ESR value changes after treatment of ACL infection to evaluate the response to treatment of the infection. Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed of arthroscopic ACL reconstruction patients from 2007 to 2008 (noninfection group) and all patients with postoperative intra-articular infection from 1997 to 2010 (infection group). We collected the CRP and ESR values on the third and fifth postoperative days in the noninfection group and before infection treatment and on the first, third, fifth, seventh, 10th, 14th, 21st, 28th, and 35th days after infection treatment in the infection group. ...
This paper aims to examine the interchangeability of the disease activity score in 28 joints (DAS28)-erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and DAS28-CRP scores in a diverse sample of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and to evaluate generalizability over gender, age, and disease duration. A sample of 682 patients was drawn from the DREAM registry. Agreement between the two DAS28 scores was analyzed using the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), Bland Altman plots, and a matrix of classification agreement over DAS28 disease activity categories. Despite a strong linear correlation between the DAS28 scores and a high ICC value of 0.931, a considerable lack of individual agreement could be observed, with Bland-Altman 95 % limits of agreement ranging between -0.85 and +1.25 points. On average, DAS28-CRP scores were 0.20 points lower than DAS28-ESR scores, and data stratification on age and gender showed that this systematic bias was most severe in older women (0.39 points). The overall ...
Introduction: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a non-specific indicator of the presence of acute and chronic inflammatory conditions in human body. The automatized method on erythrocyte sedimentation device iSED Alcor Scientific can quickly get results. It is therefore important to validate this method and allow its everyday application. Objectives: The goal is to evaluate and compare the values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate obtained on the iSED Alcor Scientific automatic device with the values obtained by the standard laboratory method, and establish the effectiveness of the investigated methods for determining sedimentation rate. Study Design: Cross-sectional study. Material and Methods: Whole blood samples from 50 patients were used in the study. Then erythrocyte sedimentation rate analyses were performed. For the Westergren method, venous blood was collected in Vacutainer tubes that contained anticoagulant sodium citrate, and for analysis on the automatic iSED Alcor Scientific device in ...
The reference range for erthyrocyte sedimentation rate is as follows: Adults (Westergren method) Men under 50 years old: < 15 mm/hr Men over 50 years old: < 20 mm/hr Women under 50 years old: < 20 mm/hr Women over 50 years old: < 30 mm/hr Children (Westergren method) Newborn: 0-2 mm/hr Newborn to puberty: 3-13 mm/hr
Eligibility for anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) therapy in most European countries is restricted to severe, active rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The DAS28 score is a marker of disease severity and incorporates one of two inflammatory markers, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or C-reactive protein. We aimed to determine the relation between genetic variants known to affect ESR and levels of ESR in patients with active RA. DNA samples were genotyped for four single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs7527798 (CR1L), rs6691117 (CR1), rs10903129 (TMEM57) and rs1043879 (C1orf63). The association between SNPs and baseline ESR, baseline DAS28-ESR, and change in DAS28-ESR was evaluated. Baseline ESR was significantly associated with CR1 rs6691117 genotype (P=0.01). No correlation was identified between baseline DAS28-ESR or change in DAS28-ESR. In conclusion, genetic variation in the gene encoding CR1 may alter ESR levels but not DAS28-ESR, indicating no adjustment for CR1 genotype is required in the
A three-phase suspension suitable for use as an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) control having the following three components: (1) a synthetic plasma base, (2) an aggregating agent such as a high molecular weight polymer or combination of high molecular weight polymers, and (3) chemically fixed mammalian red blood cells. The control is designed to allow the user to monitor the accuracy and precision of analytical methods for determining the sedimentation rate of human erythrocytes in whole blood specimens. Chemical fixing of the red blood cells provides the ESR control with the capability of providing useful results in the presence of citrate and/or saline.
Erythrocyte Sedimentation rate (ESR) is test for acute phase reactants. It was it was described by Edmund Bienracki (S Afr Med J. 2006; 96:40-1). Though it is a commonly performed test, the ESR does not diagnose any disease. A high ESR indicates the presence of infection, inflammation or malignancy. The higher the ESR, more certain…

The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) indirectly measures proteins in the blood that are associated with inflammation. ESR is measured to monitor the level of inflammation anywhere in your body. This test can be particularly helpful in determining if you are having active inflammation during a flare of IBD.. It is possible for someone with IBD to have high levels of markers of inflammation but feel well. The reverse is also true: levels of markers of inflammation like ESR can be low but you still have active disease.. But more often than not, ESR will be elevated when there is a flare occurring ...
There are few subjects in medicine, about which there is more controversy than the Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate. Some authorities place great ·reliance on test while others have discarded it as having no practical importance. There is little agreement as regards either the methods of estimation and interpretation or the clinical value of the test. This thesis will deal only with practical considerations. Theories as to the mechanism of sedimentation will not be discussed ...
In order to provide a scientific basis for a unified standard of the reference value of erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in China, the reference value of healthy peoples ESR has been collected. The relationship between the reference value of ESR and geographical factors is examined in this paper. Altitude is the most important factor affecting the reference value of ESR, which decreases with increasing altitude; the relationship is quite significant. The method of stepwise regression analysis was used to deduce two regression equations: Ŷ1=12.08-.00222X1+0.00114X5 ± 2.95, Ŷ2=18.81-0.00323X1+0.239X4 ± 4.70. If the geographical factor value of a particular area in China is known, the reference value of ESR of Chinese people can be calculated by means of the regression equations. Furthermore, the dependence on geographical factors in China can be classified as six districts: Qingzang, Southwest, Northwest, Southeast, North and Northeast. ...
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) is a commonly done test for inflammation. ESR is raised in many conditions and is a common cause for concern.
An erythrocyte sedimentation rate test (ESR) detects inflammation that may be caused by infection, some cancers, and certain autoimmune diseases.
The ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) test is excellent at reporting inflammation, but the test is non-specific so the doctor may have no idea where the inflammation is happening.
The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a laboratory test that specialists use to determine the presence of inflammatory illnesses.

The blood sample required for testing remains the same i.e. EDTA (purple-topped).. The minimum volume required for testing will be 1ml.. There will be no change to the reference range or reporting units.. There will be no change to the ordering or reporting of tests.. Comparability between the old and new methods is extremely close for values up to approximately 60 mm/h. There may be slightly more variation for values between 60 and 120 mm/h.. It is advised that serially monitored results are carefully correlated clinically during the transition. It may be necessary to establish an updated trend using results from the new method, particularly for values over 60 mm/h.. Due to the differing technology, the sensitivity and specificity of the new method for various disease states may be different from the standard Westergren method. This could lead to significantly different results in a small minority of patients.. For further technical information or clinical advice please contact: Haematology ...
In Russia, the ESR is determined by Panchenkova.Taken from the ring finger the blood is diluted with sodium acetate (4: 1) and placed in a special capillary.An hour later, the level of fixed erythrocyte sedimentation on a 100-point scale.. However, in the international method of medicine used for venous studies Westergren.Their difference is the use of tubes of different characteristics and the results of the scale.Westergren method is considered to be more sensitive: showing the same performance at a normal level, the study of this method gives higher values ​​at higher rates.. Now in many clinics use an automatic method for determining the erythrocyte sedimentation rate.This eliminates the human factor that can influence the outcome: no need for dilution of the blood sample and the observance of proportions, as well as eliminating the need to track results and time control.. In developed countries, the definition of SOE do not give such a big deal because of frequent false indicators of ...

My mother has been diagnosed with kidney failure three weeks back. At that time her platelet count was normal 1.44 lakh/cmm. She has a AV fistula operation done, which was repeated since the first fistula did not function and later acquired infection. She was given claribid for the infection. The swelling and pain has reduced to a great extent. However, now her platelet count has reduced to 0.85 lakh/cmm and ESR 1st hour has been raised to 59 mm. We had not tested for her ESR earlier. Can we suspect autoimmune disorder (lupus)? Can the high ESR count be because of the infection of the non-functional fistula?
Methods In 66 consecutive DMARD-naive early RA patients lipid profile and disease activity were measured. This was repeated after four weeks of treatment with methotrexate (3 weeks 10 mg, 4th week 17.5 mg) and prednisolone (30 mg tapered to 10 mg). Lipid profile assessment comprised TC, HDL-C, LDL-C, triglycerides and apolipoprotein A and B (Apo A and Apo B). Disease activity was assessed by the disease activity score of 44 joints (DAS44), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP). Patients on statins were excluded. The change in lipid profile (week 4 minus week 0) versus change in ESR was analysed in 2 patient groups: a group with high (median -31.0 mm/hour) and a group with low (median -3.0 mm/hour) improvement in ESR. ...
If psoriasis has been diagnosed before or at the time the other symptoms of psoriatic arthritis are found, a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis may be easily confirmed. However, when psoriatic arthritis symptoms precede symptoms of psoriasis, diagnosis is more difficult. Although psoriatic arthritis sometimes causes an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), mild anemia, and elevated blood uric acid levels, these symptoms are also associated with other rheumatic diseases, including gout.. Other diagnostic tests may include:. ...
A 32-year-old woman presented in 1991 with a 2-month history of fever reaching 39.5°C and associated with arthritis in the knees, ankles and shoulders, a nonpruritic skin rash, myalgia and weight loss. Her laboratory studies, including liver function tests, were within the normal ranges except that she had an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) of 110 mm/hr and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) of 1975 IU/L (Normal Range: 200-480). The rheumatoid factor and antinuclear antibodies were negative. Blood cultures were also negative. On physical examination she was found to have several enlarged right anterior cervical lymph nodes (2 × 3 cm in size) and left posterior auricular lymph nodes (0.5 × 1 cm in size) all of which were non-tender, immobile and rubbery. In addition, she had swelling in both knee joints and ankle joints. Papular skin lesions on the neck and upper abdomen were evident. No hepatosplenomegaly was detected. A chest radiograph revealed pleural effusion in the left lower lung ...
Thyroiditis is a group of inflammatory thyroid disorders. Patients with chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (also referred to as Hashimotos thyroiditis) present with hypothyroidism, goiter, or both. Measurement of serum thyroid autoantibodies and thyroglobulin confirms the diagnosis. Subacute granulomatous thyroiditis (sometimes referred to as de Quervains disease) is a self-limited but painful disorder of the thyroid. Physical examination, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated thyroglobulin level and depressed radioactive iodine uptake (RAIU) confirm the diagnosis. Subacute lymphocytic thyroiditis (silent thyroiditis) is considered autoimmune in origin and commonly occurs in the postpartum period. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism and depressed RAIU predominate. Acute (suppurative) thyroiditis is a rare, infectious thyroid disorder caused by bacteria and other microbes. The rare, invasive fibrous thyroiditis (Riedels thyroiditis) presents with a slowly enlarging anterior neck mass that is

Inflammatory aortic aneurysm (IAA), also known as Inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm (IAAA), is a type of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) where the walls of the aneurysm become thick and inflamed. Similar to AAA, IAA occurs in the abdominal region. IAA is closely associated and believed to be a response to and extensive peri-anuerysmal fibrosis, which is the formation of excess fibrous connective tissue in an organ or tissue in a reparative or reactive process IAA accounts for 5-10% of aortic aneurysms. IAA is occurs mainly in a population that is on average younger by 10 years than most AAA patients. Some common symptoms of IAA may include back pain, abdominal tenderness, fevers, weight loss or elevated Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) levels. Corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive drugs have been found to decrease symptoms and the degree of peri-aortic inflammation and fibrosis Inflammatory Aortic Aneurysms occur typically in a younger population compared to the typical Abdominal ...

PY - 1988/10/1. Y1 - 1988/10/1. N2 - To assess the relationships of various symptoms and other early findings to the diagnosis of primary coccidioidomycosis, we devised a 40-question survey that was completed by 556 college students seeking medical care for illness possibly due to Coccidioides immitis. The results of routine laboratory studies on these patients were also compiled. Of 269 who had coccidioidal antibody determinations and other diagnostic tests, coccidioidomycosis was diagnosed in 36 (13%). By logistic regression procedures, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, male gender, red lumps on shins, recent arrival to an endemic area, acuteness of symptoms, and decreased total peripheral blood lymphocyte counts were independent factors positively associated with infection (P less than .05). ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Retroperitoneal approach for repair of inflammatory aortic aneurysms. AU - Todd, George J.. AU - DeRose, Joseph J.. PY - 1995/11. Y1 - 1995/11. N2 - Inflammatory aortic aneurysms (IAAs) are characterized by a markedly thickened aortic wall and dense perianeurysmal fibrosis. The presence of such inflammation and subsequent organ adherence makes surgical repair of IAAs more challenging than repair of simple atherosclerotic aneurysms. From March 1987 to June 1994, twelve patients underwent surgical repair of an IAA by a single surgeon. Ten patients were men (83%) and the mean age was 68.3 years (range 58 to 93 years). All patients except one were symptomatic with back or abdominal pain, yet none had evidence of aneurysm rupture at operation. Preoperatively 90% (9/10) of the patients had an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), 100% (12/12) had a predictive CT scan, and all patients with aortic wall pathology specimens had their diagnosis confirmed. Six patients had a left ...
The histiocytosis-lymphadenopathy plus syndrome comprises features of 4 histiocytic disorders previously thought to be distinct: Faisalabad histiocytosis (FHC), sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy (SHML), H syndrome, and pigmented hypertrichosis with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus syndrome (PHID). FHC described an autosomal recessive disease involving joint deformities, sensorineural hearing loss, and subsequent development of generalized lymphadenopathy and swellings in the eyelids that contain histiocytes (summary by Morgan et al., 2010). SHML, or familial Rosai-Dorfman disease, was described as a rare cause of lymph node enlargement in children, consisting of chronic massive enlargement of cervical lymph nodes frequently accompanied by fever, leukocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia. Extranodal sites were involved in approximately 25% of patients, including salivary glands, orbit, eyelid, spleen, and testes. The involvement ...
A blood test that can reveal inflammatory activity in the body. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR or sed rate) can be useful in detecting and monitoring common autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. (Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the bodys own tissues.) Less common autoimmune diseases such as allergic vasculitis, giant cell arteritis, necrotizing vasculitis, and polymyalgia rheumatica can cause very high ESR levels. Increased ESR levels may also indicate systemic infections, bone infections, infections of the heart or heart valves, rheumatic fever, severe skin infections, or tuberculosis.. To measure ESR, a sample of the patients blood is placed in a tall, thin cylinder. The red blood cells, the erythrocytes, gradually settle to the bottom of the cylinder. When inflammation is present, the high blood concentration of fibrinogen, a plasma protein involved in the clotting process, ...

A 69-year-old man with a history of pulmonary tuberculosis was experiencing poor oral intake, general myalgia, and weight loss of 5 kg over four months. When he visited a local hospital because of dizziness extending over a week, he was treated with aspirin under the impression of a transient ischemic attack. He was referred to our hospital because of generalized myalgia and positive rheumatoid factor. He had bilateral shoulder and hip pain. His erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) was elevated to 86 mm/hour (reference range, 0-20 mm/hour). He was treated with an oral corticosteroid (15 mg/day prednisolone equivalent) under the impression of polymyalgia rheumatica, according to the European League Against Rheumatism collaborative initiative/American College of Rheumatology classification criteria (age ≥50 years, bilateral shoulder ache, and abnormal CRP level or ESR).5 After three months of treatment, he was admitted because of persistent symptoms, including poor oral intake. On physical ...

Elevated erythrocyte ATP is a recently described inherited abnormality in which erythrocytes of some affected individuals contain levels of ATP (6.0 µm/g hemoglobin) twice the normal mean (3.1 µm). Genetic studies of this Negro kindred are consistent with simple autosomal inheritance. Genes for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency and sickle hemoglobin also occur in the kindred but segregate independently. The propositus, whose erythrocytes have twice normal levels of ATP, is G-6-PD deficient. He is as susceptible to primaquine-induced hemolysis as other G-6-PD deficient subjects, and drug ingestion does not influence his erythrocytic ATP level; these findings argue strongly against one current ...

The ESR can also be used as a prognosis marker, as shown by a study of ischemic stroke, which indicated that a high ESR on admission was associated with clinical deterioration during the first 24 hours of stroke onset.9 Conversely patients with congestive heart failure who had higher ESR values, had better haemodynamic and clinical benefits. They also had better one and two year survival rates.10 A high ESR in patients with non-metastasising renal cell carcinoma has been shown to indicate a poor prognosis.11Another study monitoring early stage Hodgkins disease has shown that the ESR could identify a group of patients at high risk for relapse and subsequent death.12.

In all inflammatory processes, this figure rises very quickly. The subsequent dynamics of the disease immediately affects the levels of CRP. Therefore the need for treatment to pass a blood test CRP. If the level is reduced, so the treatment is chosen correctly. If C-reactive protein continued to rise or indicator does not change - it is necessary to adjust the treatment. With proper treatment the norm indicator is reached in 6-10 days.. When interpreting the results of the analysis, the doctor draws attention to one more indicator of sedimentation rate. It also increases with the presence of inflammation in the body, but not so fast and not so fast. Normal levels of CRP elevated ESR may indicate acute intoxication, as well as some other diseases.. ...
Tuesday, November 1, 2016. An article appearing online on October 6, 2016 in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition reports a benefit for supplementing with quercetin in a randomized, double-blind trial of women with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).. The trial included 40 female rheumatoid arthritis patients who were given 500 milligrams quercetin or a placebo daily for eight weeks. Blood samples collected prior to and after the treatment period were analyzed for erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and plasma high-sensitivity tumor necrosis factor-alpha, (hs-TNFa, a marker of inflammation).

Results The 3 month PUCAI was the strongest predictor of 1 year sustained steroid free remission (SSFR) (area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC)=0.7 (95% CI 0.6 to 0.8) and colectomy by 2 years (AUROC=0.75 (0.6 to 0.89)). SSFR was achieved in 9/54 (17%) children who had active disease (PUCAI ≥10) at 3 months (negative predictive value (NPV)=83%) and by 4/46 (8.6%) of those with a PUCAI score ,10; (NPV=91%, positive predictive value=52%; p,0.001), implying that PUCAI ,10 at 3 months has a probability of 9% for achieving SSFR versus 48% with a PUCAI value of ≤10. None of the variables at baseline was predictive of SSFR or colectomy (endoscopic severity, disease extent, age, PUCAI or C reactive protein/erythrocyte sedimentation rate/albumin/haemoglobin; all AUROC,0.6, p,0.05) but baseline PUCAI predicted subsequent acute severe colitis and the need for salvage medical therapy.. ...

Results. The proportion of male patients was higher in AS than in nr-axSpA (76.2% vs 47.9%; p , 0.0001). There was no difference in the presence of HLA-B27 between AS (78.9%) and nr-axSpA (72.5%) patients, nor in age at the time of diagnosis, although AS patients were younger at the time of symptom onset (23.9 yrs vs 26.4 yrs; p = 0.03). Disease duration at the time of last clinic visit was longer for AS than for nr-axSpA patients (17.7 yrs vs 12.1 yrs; p = 0.0002). Acute-phase reactants were higher in AS than in nr-axSpA (C-reactive protein 11.4 vs 5.2, p , 0.0001; erythrocyte sedimentation rate 13.7 vs 9.9, p = 0.02).

To evaluate the clinical usefulness of serum S100A12 and sRAGE, we studied these factors in patients with AOSD and compared them with those of HC. Moreover, we also studied these levels as a biomarker for checking disease activity. To the best of our knowledge, the present study is the first to show elevated S100A12 levels with low concentration of circulating sRAGE in patients with AOSD. Further, serum S100A12 correlated with several inflammatory markers and systemic score, and serum S100A12 was decreased when the disease activity resolved in the followup patients with AOSD.. The activities of S100A12 include chemotactic activity and activation of intracellular signaling cascades leading to cytokine production and induction of oxidative stress36. S100A12 is overexpressed in several inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory bowel diseases, vasculitis, JIA, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, and asthma8,9,17,18,19,29,37,38. Additionally, S100A12 distinguished systemic onset JIA from infections ...

The symbols *, **, ***, **** and † represent the differences between men and women in a particular group; differences between PU and AS group; differences between PU and control group; differences between AS and control group; and differences between Total infected group and control group, respectively.. Discussion. The results of the present study showed higher serum levels of RF and ANA in H. pylori-infected PU patients compared to the healthy control group. In accordance with our results, it has been reported that the H. pylori infection contributes in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis, and the eradication at the infection is reported to have reduced the disease severity.11,12 Moreover, the eradication of H. pylori is recommended for infected RA patients in order to attenuate the disease.11 It has been also reported that the eradication of H. pylori reduces several laboratory parameters including ANA, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, fibrinogen and α2-globulins in patients with ...
