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 ...
