Immunosurveillance and the evaluation of national immunization programmes: a population-based approach. (1/1207)

Mass vaccination can change the epidemiological dynamics of infectious diseases. It may result in a limited persistence of natural and vaccine-induced immunity and a higher mean age of infection, which may lead to a greater risk of complications. The epidemiological situation should be monitored and immunosurveillance based on the assessment of specific antibodies against vaccine-preventable diseases in human serum is one of the tools. In order to estimate the immunity of the Dutch population reliably, a large-scale, population-based, collection of serum samples was established (8359 sera in a nation-wide sampling and 1589 sera from municipalities with low vaccine coverage). In contrast to collecting residual sera from laboratories, this approach gains extensive information by means of a questionnaire regarding the determinants of the immune status and the risk factors for the transmission of infectious diseases in general. The population-based approach gives a better guarantee that the data are representative than collecting sera from laboratories does.  (+info)

A method for collecting right coronary venous blood samples from conscious dogs. (2/1207)

This report describes for the first time a technique to collect right coronary venous blood samples from conscious dogs. Catheters, prepared from Micro-Renathane tubing, were surgically implanted in right ventricular superficial veins of three anesthetized dogs. Also implanted were an arterial catheter, a right coronary flow transducer, and a right coronary artery constrictor. The coronary catheter was introduced at a venous bifurcation so that its side holes were positioned above the bifurcation; both ends of the catheter were exteriorized. Heparinized saline was continuously infused through the venous catheter by a battery-powered pump. The dogs were maintained for 10-13 days after surgery, and all catheters remained patent. Multiple right coronary venous samples were collected from each dog. These samples were analyzed for venous oxygen tension (PvO2) under baseline conditions, with right coronary pressure reduced to 50 mmHg, and during the reactive hyperemia after release of the right coronary artery constriction. PvO2 was 27.7 +/- 1.0 mmHg at baseline, 23.4 +/- 1.0 mmHg during coronary artery constriction, and 34.3 +/- 1.5 mmHg during reactive hyperemia. These data and the position of the catheter at autopsy demonstrated that coronary venous blood had been sampled.  (+info)

Reducing bruising after venepuncture. (3/1207)

Bruising after venepuncture is undesirable. To verify an apparent increase in bruising after introducing a new venepuncture system in a small district general hospital and to improve the venepuncture service two prospective audits of the incidence and severity of bruising after venepuncture were performed in two groups of 100 consecutive inpatients undergoing venepuncture by phlebotomists. In the first audit bruising was detected in 45 patients, of whom 34(76%) had bruises > 100 mm2 in area. After modification of the technique, whereby the phlebotomists ensured that haemostasis had been attained before leaving the patient, bruising was significantly reduced, occurring in 25 patients only 9 of whom (36%) had bruises > 100mm2 in area (both p < 0.01) in the second audit. Monitoring of standards and simple modification of technique resulted in significant reduction in incidence and severity of bruising, improving the quality of the venepuncture service.  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of paracetamol for heel prick pain in neonates. (4/1207)

AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of paracetamol in decreasing the pain from heel prick. METHODS: A prospective randomised double blind placebo controlled trial was conducted of 75 term neonates undergoing heel prick. Sixty to 90 minutes before the procedure neonates received paracetamol orally in a dose of 20 mg/kg (group 1) or an equal volume of placebo (group 2). Heel prick was performed in a standardised manner. Pain assessments were made using per cent facial action (brow bulge, eye squeeze, and nasolabial fold (range 0-300%) and per cent of time spent crying (range 0-100%). RESULTS: Thirty eight neonates were enrolled in group 1 and 37 neonates in group 2. There were no significant differences in the demographic characteristics between groups. Mean gestational age was 39 (SD 1.4) vs 39.4 (SD 1.2) weeks, p = 0.86, mean birthweight 3.45 (SD 0.45) vs 3.44 (SD 0.42) kg; p = 0.31 for groups 1 and 2, respectively. Facial action pain scores did not differ between groups (143.5 (SD 54.2)% vs 131.1 (SD 59.6)%; p = 0.38). Cry scores also did not differ (29.4 (SD 19.9)% vs 26.8 (SD 20.2)%; p = 0.60). No adverse effects were observed. CONCLUSION: Paracetamol is ineffective for decreasing the pain from heel prick in term neonates.  (+info)

Stem cell mobilization with G-CSF alone in breast cancer patients: higher progenitor cell yield by delivering divided doses (2 x 5 microg/kg) compared to a single dose (1 x 10 microg/kg). (5/1207)

We investigated the schedule dependency of G-CSF (10 microg/kg) alone in mobilizing peripheral blood progenitor cells (PBPC) in breast cancer patients. After a median of three cycles (range, 2-6) of anthracycline-based chemotherapy, 49 patients with breast cancer (stage II/III, > or = 10+ Ln n = 36; locally advanced/inflammatory n = 8, stage IV (NED) n = 5) underwent PBPC collection after steady-state mobilization either with 1 x 10 microg/kg (n = 27) or with 2 x 5 microg/kg (n = 22) G-CSF daily for 4 consecutive days until completion of apheresis. Apheresis was started on day 5. Priming with 2 x 5 microg/kg resulted in a higher median number of CD34+ cells (5.8 vs 1.9 x 10(6)/kg, P = 0.003), MNC (6.6 vs 2.6 x 10(8)/kg, P < 0.001) and CFU-GM (6.5 vs 1.3 x 10(4)/kg, P = 0.001) in the first apheresis than with 1 x 10 microg/kg. Also the overall number of collected BFU-E was higher in the 2 x 5 microg group (9.2 vs 3.1 x 10(4)/kg; P = 0.01). After high-dose chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide/thiotepa/mitoxantrone (n = 46) hematopoietic engraftment with leukocyte count > 1.0/nl was reached in both groups after a median of 10 days (range, 8-15) and with platelets count > 50/nl after 12 (range, 9-40) and 13 days (range, 12-41), respectively. A threshold of > 2.5 x 10(6)/kg reinfused CD34+ cells ensured rapid platelet engraftment (12 vs 17 days; P = 0.12). Therefore, the target of collecting > 2.5 x 10(6) CD34+ cells was achieved in 21/27 (80%) patients of the 1 x 10 microg group and in 21/22 (95%) patients of the 2 x 5 microg/kg group with a median of two aphereses (range, 1-4). None in the 10 microg/kg group, but 6/22 (28%) patients in the 2 x 5 microg/kg group required only one apheresis procedure, resulting in fewer apheresis procedures in the 2 x 5 microg/kg group (mean, 1.8 vs 2.3, P = 0.01). These results demonstrate that priming with 10 microg/kg G-CSF alone is well tolerated and effective in mobilizing sufficient numbers of CD34+ cells in breast cancer patients and provide prompt engraftment after CTM high-dose chemotherapy. G-CSF given 5 microg/kg twice daily (2 x 5 microg) leads to a higher harvest of CD34+ cells and required fewer apheresis procedures than when given 10 microg/kg once daily (1 x 10 microg).  (+info)

Optimal timing for processing and cryopreservation of umbilical cord haematopoietic stem cells for clinical transplantation. (6/1207)

Some of the factors that may influence the number and quality of cord blood haematopoietic progenitor cells available for transplantation have been investigated including site of collection, delayed processing after collection and cryopreservation protocol. We used the granulocyte-macrophage progenitor (CFU-GM) and erythroid burst-forming unit (BFU-E) assays to quantify progenitors. The capacity of CFU-GM to produce secondary colonies was used as a measure of progenitor cell quality. We found that: (1) there were no significant differences in total nucleated cells (TNC), mononuclear cells (MNC), CFU-GM or BFU-E numbers in paired specimens from the umbilical vein or veins at the base of the placenta. The potential of the CFU-GM to produce secondary colonies from the two sites was similar; (2) storing cord blood at room temperature or at 4 degrees C resulted in a significant reduction in progenitor cell numbers beyond 9 h; and (3) cryopreservation following either controlled rate freezing or passive cooling reduced MNC numbers, viability and CFU-GM survival insignificantly but the potential of CFU-GM to produce secondary colonies was significantly reduced post cryopreservation (P = 0.04). We conclude that the yield of CB progenitor cells is not affected by the site of collection, but is adversely affected by delays between collection and cryopreservation. Furthermore, cryopreservation reduced the CFU-GM potential to produce secondary colonies. Measures of progenitor cell quality as well as quantity may be relevant to assessing CB blood collections.  (+info)

Ultrasound study of heel to calcaneum depth in neonates. (7/1207)

AIM: To investigate whether it would be safe to extend the currently recommended area of sampling to the whole heel in neonates. METHODS: Eighty newborn infants were studied, weight range 0.56 to 4.34 kg, gestation 24 to 42 weeks. Ultrasound scanning was used to measure the shortest distance between the skin and the perichondrium of the calcaneum. RESULTS: The shortest depth of perichondrium was in the centre of the heel and ranged from 3 to 8 mm. In 78 of the 80 infants the distance was 4 mm or more. There was a small but significant positive correlation with weight. CONCLUSIONS: Standard automated lancets for preterm use that puncture to a depth of 2.4 mm may be safely used anywhere over the plantar surface of the heel. The posterior aspect of the heel should be avoided. Reducing the density of heel pricks should reduce the associated pain.  (+info)

Evaluation of renal function from 99mTc-MAG3 renography without blood sampling. (8/1207)

To develop a camera-based method for evaluating renal function with 99mTc-mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3), we examined the relationship between various renogram parameters and 99mTc-MAG3 clearance. METHODS: Twenty-one patients underwent renal scintigraphy with 99mTc-MAG3. Eighty 3-s frames were obtained after the bolus injection of 250 MBq tracer, followed by the collection of 52 30-s frames. Regions of interest were drawn for the kidneys, perirenal background areas and subrenal background areas, and background-subtracted renograms were generated. Renal accumulation at 0.5-1.5, 0.5-2, 1-2, 1-2.5 and 1.5-2.5 min after tracer arrival in the kidney was calculated as area under the background-subtracted renogram, and percent renal uptake was obtained after correction for soft-tissue attenuation and injected dose. The slope of the renogram was determined for the same segments used in calculating area under the renogram, and slope index was computed as slope corrected for attenuation and injected dose. Percent renal uptakes and slope indices were correlated by linear regression analysis with 99mTc-MAG3 clearance measured using a single blood sampling method. RESULTS: Among the values of percent renal uptake, the value obtained at 1.5-2.5 min using the perirenal background correlated best with 99mTc-MAG3 clearance. The slope index at 0.5-1.5 or 0.5-2 min using the subrenal background provided better accuracy than percent renal uptake for predicting clearance. There were no substantial differences in the relative function of the right kidney between the methods using percent renal uptake and slope index. CONCLUSION: 99mTc-MAG3 clearance can be assessed with acceptable accuracy by a camera-based method. The method based on the slope of the renogram may replace the one based on the area under the renogram in evaluating renal function from 99mTc-MAG3 renograms.  (+info)

The interior of the tube wall is coated with lithium heparin, ammonium heparin or sodium heparin. The anticoagulant heparin activates antithrombins, thus blocking the coagulation cascade and producing a whole blood / plasma sample instead of clotted blood plus serum. Plasma separator tubes (PST) are tubes with lithium heparin and gel contain a barrier gel in the tube. The specific gravity of this material lies between that of the blood cells and plasma. During centrifugation the gel barrier moves upwards providing a stable barrier separating the plasma from cells. Plasma may be aspirated directly from the collection tube, eliminating the need for manual transfer to another container. This barrier allows for the stability of certain parameters in the primary tube under the recommended storage conditions for up to 48 hours. Check the heparin additive before use. Do not use heparin plasma tubes for TDM measurements, lithium heparin for lithium determinations, sodium heparin for sodium ...

The Blood Sample Collection Problem (BSCP) aims to find the routes to collect blood samples from different locations and to deliver them to a clinical laboratory for analysis. The BSCP is a variant of the well-known Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) [5] with two additional features: (i) routes are open, and (ii) time per route is constrained. In a regular VRP, a fleet of vehicles is based at a single depot to serve demands for a set of geographically dispersed customers. Each vehicle, whose capacity cannot be exceeded, leaves the depot, visits some customers, and returns to the depot. The problem consists in finding the sequence of deliveries (routes) so that all customers are served and the total distance traveled by all vehicles is minimized.. The VRP is a non-deterministic polynomial-time hard (NP-hard) problem [6], which implies a non-polynomial increase in the size of the solution space when the number of nodes is increased. Although significant research effort has been dedicated to ...

It is important to note that when Plasma/Serum are the sample required for the test, whole blood samples should not be sent.. Whole blood: The most common test using anticoagulated whole blood is the Complete Blood Count (CBC) and blood film morphology, which should be collected using a lavender-top (EDTA) plastic vacuum tube. Other tests might require anticoagulants such as green-top (heparin) or light blue-top (sodium citrate) tube. Please follow instructions for the individual test. Collect an adequate volume of blood. Fill the tube to capacity (fill mark on the tube), since the partial filling will result in distortions caused by the osmolality of the anticoagulant. Under filled or overfilled blood collection tubes will not be accepted for testing. Immediately mix the blood thoroughly with the additives by gently inverting eight (8) times, or four (4) times when using light blue-top (sodium citrate) tubes. Incomplete mixing or delay in mixing after phlebotomy will result in microscopic ...

BLUE capped Vacutainer tube containing liquid Sodium Citrate anticoagulant or in-house paediatric tube. Samples should be taken by clean venepuncture and the tube containing the specimen should be mixed thoroughly with the anticoagulant. It is essential that the tubes are filled to the correct level to ensure that the ratio of blood to liquid anticoagulant is correct.. Underfilled samples will result in falsely prolonged coagulation times. Specimens which are received underfilled will be rejected and a second specimen requested. The correct fill level is attained when the Vacutainer tube has been allowed to fill as much as possible before withdrawal from the vein. If manually filled, however, the blood should be to the top of the label on the tube. If the tubes are not mixed thoroughly, clots may form precluding testing.. NB Specimens should NOT be taken from irrigated Venflons or arterial lines as heparin contamination will affect the results, particularly the APTT.. Specimens taken from the ...

We applied these formulas for calculated osmolality (OSMc) to data generated in our laboratory on control specimens and on patient samples from the emergency room, and calculated the OG for each OSMc.. Osmolality was measured by freezing-point depression with a Fiske 2400 osmometer (Fiske Associates). Electrolytes, glucose, urea, and ethanol were determined on high-volume analyzers [Hitachi 717 (1996-2002) and Roche Modular System (2003-2004); Roche Diagnostics]. Collection tubes were Becton Dickinson SST and PST Vacutainers from 1996 until 2002 and Corvac PST thereafter. The calculations were all done in SI units and expressed in mosmol/kg or mmol/L as appropriate. The respective OG values were calculated as OG = OSMm − OSMc. The prospective period of the study lasted from April to October of 2003. During this period, all requests for toxic volatiles also had all analytes measured to allow calculation of OG. We used 2 quality-control specimens (Bio-Rad MultiQual; Bio-Rad Laboratories) during ...
Normally, blood is drawn into a primary collection tube, it clots, and any serum required for storage is transferred to a secondary tube, which is labelled and frozen. Small (1.8 ml) screw topped plastic tubes are in general use for this purpose. There are several disadvantages to this system. It is time consuming, it involves staff in extensive contact with potentially infected sera, and introduces the risk of identification errors in relabelling the secondary container. Gel separation tubes have been introduced to simplify the separation of serum from clotted blood.3 These tubes contain a plug of a polymer gel and a clot activator. Blood is drawn into the tubes using a vacuum collection system, it clots quickly through the action of the clot activator, and the tube is centrifuged. This results in the separation of the sample into a supernatant layer of serum separated from the clot by an impervious gel plug. The process is carried out in a sealed tube so that no contact with the serum is ...

Checking blood glucose levels regularly is very important in proper diabetes management. Current methods of blood sugar monitoring require a blood sample. Blood sugar monitoring can be done at home with a variety of invasive devices to obtain the blood sample (invasive means the penetration of body tissue with a medical instrument).. Usually a drop of blood obtained through a finger prick is sufficient to use on a test strip that is then measured in a monitor. A finger prick can be done with a small lancet (special needle) or with a spring-loaded lancet device that punctures the fingertip quickly. The drop of blood is placed on a testing strip. The testing strip is then placed in a blood glucose monitor (also called a glucose meter or glucometer) which reads the blood sugar level.. ...
ISSUE: FDA and CDC have noted a progressive increase in the reports of bloodborne infection transmission over the past 10 to 15 years (primarily hepatitis B virus), resulting from the shared use of fingerstick and point-of-care [POC] blood testing devices.. Fingerstick and POC blood testing devices used on more than one patient may not be safe for several reasons. Improper use or device malfunction can lead to the use of the contaminated lancet blade on more than one patient. It is difficult for healthcare staff to ensure that all blood has been removed from POC blood testing devices and the reusable portions of the fingerstick device. If POC blood testing devices are used on multiple patients and are not cleaned and disinfected correctly and thoroughly between each patient, contaminated blood left on them could result in bloodborne pathogen transmission among patients.. BACKGROUND: Fingerstick devices are instruments equipped with a lancet. These devices are used for making skin punctures to ...

Empirical Bioscience announced the introduction of a new Plasmid Mini-Prep Kit today. Requiring only 1-3mL of bacterial culture, the kit isolates high-quality plasma or cosmid DNA for extraction up to 10 kb in length and yields up to 20 µg per preparation. In addition to using smaller volumes of cultures, the kit also features an integrated pH indicator within the lysis buffer. This indicator changes color to bright yellow when the lysis buffer reaches the optimal pH level for DNA binding, 7.5. If the pH is greater than 7.5 the lysis buffer will appear orange or violet in color indicating that the pH level is inefficient for DNA adsorption, allowing researchers to make adjustments to the mixture for more efficient plasmid isolation.

Venous blood samples provide sufficient material for performing a variety of diagnostic tests, including concentration procedures (filariasis, trypanosomiasis). However, in some parasitic diseases (e.g., for diagnosis of malaria in particular), anticoagulants in the venous blood specimen can interfere with parasite morphology and staining characteristics; this problem can be further compounded by excessive delays prior to making the smears. In such cases, capillary blood samples are preferable. If PCR is required, please refer to the molecular diagnosis section for appropriate blood collection procedures.. Capillary blood obtained by fingerstick:. ...

Over the last few years, there has been a huge rise in the number of us taking an active role in our health and recently there has been a significant shift in peoples attitudes. More and more of us dont just care about how we look on the outside, but also how well our bodies are working on the inside. Here at Medichecks, we are keen to help you understand what is happening inside your body. In our view, blood tests are not just for diagnosing conditions when you are ill but are also an excellent way to give you an insight into how your everyday choices affect your health and wellbeing. To launch our new inner health campaign, we created the UKs first work-in gym at Londons Liverpool Street Station on January 18th, supported by former model and fitness fanatic Nell McAndrew who wore an inside-out bodysuit which showcased the inside workings of the body. The gym was designed to give commuters an inner-body health MOT and members of the public were given a simple, finger prick blood test ...
To determine whether biomarkers assessed in blood samples can be used to detect individuals at risk for developing blood clots or worsening of their underlying disease. The ultimate goal of the study is to identify key biomarkers derived from blood that are most characteristic and informative of individuals who will go on to develop a clotting complication.
A critically ill patient may enter the ICU because of organ failure, extreme dehydration, Sepsis, or some other complicated issue. In all of these conditions, a quick response is best for a positive patient outcome. Invasive hemodynamic monitoring allows a healthcare provider to access real-time information about the patients cardiac health. Additionally, blood samples are a routine and vital process to assess the patients lung function and perfusion. Multiple blood samples per day is not uncommon in the ICU; however, providers may be unaware of the inherent risks of drawing blood.. Each time a blood sample is drawn, the potential for contamination and blood discard is present. The CDC has made recommendations for improving blood sampling, including the use of a pressure monitoring system with a closed-flush (continuous-flush) sampling system. This type of system can help prevent air-borne contaminants from entering the blood stream. In a study comparing bacterial contamination in arterial ...

0031]This apparatus has a collection tube 11 receiving an active carbon 1 (i.e. an active carbon tube), a pressure gauge 2, a filter 3, a backflow preventing valve 4, a drain valve 5, an uptake tube 6 receiving water, and an uptake tube 7 receiving an aqueous solution of 0.1N sodium hydroxide. When a steam having a pressure, for example, from 0.5 to 1.0 MPa and a temperature, for example, from 150 to 200° C. is applied to the collection tube 11 receiving an active carbon, which has adsorbed the fluorine-containing compound, the fluorine-containing compound is desorbed from the active carbon. When the steam containing the fluorine-containing compound flows through the uptake tube 6, the fluorine-containing compound is dissolved in the water received in the uptake tube 6, thereby collecting the fluorine-containing compound by the uptake tube 6. Most of the fluorine-containing compound, which has been desorbed from the active carbon, is collected by the uptake tube 6. The fluorine-containing ...
Background: Preanalytical variables, such as sample collection, handling, transport, and storage, may affect patient results. The number of errors in the preanalytical phase may decrease by following standardized procedures.. Methods: A retrospective analysis (2001-2005) of results obtained through the Spanish Society of Clinical Chemistry and Molecular Pathology Quality Assessment Program for the Preanalytical Phase has been carried out to summarize data regarding the main factors affecting the preanalytical phase quality. In such a program, participants are asked to register rejections and causes for rejection of routine or stat samples usually and locally collected at their laboratories.. Results: Results discussed refer to 105 laboratories. Of the 4,715,132 tubes expected to be received during the data collection period among participating laboratories and according to determinations included by clinicians in the request form, 32,977 (0.699%) offered a cause for rejection.

A simple filter paper method was developed for, the transport and storage of monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) at room temperature or -20°C after spotting on filter paper, for subsequent serotyping of outer membrane antigens of N.meningitidis by dot-blot ELISA. Monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) were spotted within a 0.5-1 cm diameter area of Whatman grade 903 paper, which were stored individually at room temperature or at -20°C. These MAbs were stored and analyzed after periods of one week, 4 weeks, 12 months, or 13 years in the case of frozen Mab aliquots, or after 4 weeks at -20°C or at room temperature (RT) in the case of Mabs dried on filter paper strips. Assays were performed in parallel using dot-blot ELISA. In addition to the MAbs specific for serotyping class 1, 2 or 3, we used a larger number of Mabs for polysaccharides, lipooligosaccharides (LOS), class 5 and cross-reactive antigens for native outer membrane of N.meningitidis. The Mabs dried on filter paper were eluted with phosphate-buffered saline

Elevated indoor air pollution levels due to the burning of biomass in developing countries are well established. Few studies have quantitatively assessed air pollution levels of improved cookstoves and examined these measures in relation to health effects. We conducted a cross-sectional survey among 79 Honduran women cooking with traditional or improved cookstoves. Carbon monoxide and fine particulate matter (PM2.5) levels were assessed via indoor and personal monitoring. Pulmonary function and respiratory symptoms were ascertained. Finger-stick blood spot samples were collected to measure C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations. The use of improved stoves was associated with 63% lower levels of personal PM2.5, 73% lower levels of indoor PM2.5, and 87% lower levels of indoor carbon monoxide as compared to traditional stoves. Women using traditional stoves reported symptoms more frequently than those using improved stoves. There was no evidence of associations between cookstove type or air ...
