An objective of the CLIA is to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of test results regardless of where the test was performed. Most Laboratory Developed Tests have been regulated under this program.[3] In 2014 the FDA started a public discussion about regulating some LDTs.[4] Per CLIA, each specific laboratory system, assay, examination is graded for level of complexity by assigning scores of 1, 2, or 3 for each of the following seven criteria. A score 1 is the lowest level of complexity and a score of 3 indicates the highest level. Score 2 is assigned when the characteristics for a particular test are intermediate between the descriptions listed for scores of 1 and 3.[5] Criteria for categorization: ...

Genzyme said its Allston, Massachusetts plant will be the subject of Food & Drug Administration (FDA) enforcement action following several <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/defective_drugs">manufacturing problems. The facility was temporarily shut down in June because of a viral contamination.. The Allston plant is the only one that makes the Gauchers disease treatment Cerezyme and the Fabry disease drug Fabrazyme. Last Junes shutdown resulted in a shortage of the two drugs. Globally, about 5,500 people depend on Cerezyme and about 2,500 use Fabrazyme. While production was restarted, the shortage of the two drugs is ongoing.. According to The Wall Street Journal, the Genzyme Allston plant has failed multiple regulatory inspections dating back to 2008. The FDA enforcement action is meant to insure that products manufactured at the plant are made in compliance with good manufacturing practice regulations. While the plant will be allowed to remain open, Genzyme will likely have to enter ...

N2 - Atazanavir (ATV) is a widely used human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 protease inhibitor (PI) that, like other approved PIs, has been considered as a candidate for therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM). To provide ATV assay results that can be applied to patient management through TDM, the assay would need to perform in a manner consistent with Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) standards. To quantitate ATV concentrations in human plasma, the authors added ATV to a previously published reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method from their laboratory. Detection was effected with use of a ...
Before delving further into this possibility, it is fair to ponder whether WGS might have been "overkill" in this particular instance. After all, most information that emerged from WGS seemed irrelevant to the "index" observation of a "non-V600" BRAF mutation that drove the subsequent focus of this study. Although the investigators invested a considerable and laudable effort into identifying the myriad alterations present in this tumor genome (,60% of which consist of cytosine-to-thymidine transitions characteristic of UV light-induced DNA damage), most of this information would likely be uninterpretable to all but the most genomically rarefied oncologists. Moreover, it remains costly to sequence and analyze an entire cancer genome in an environment of Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). Finally, few if any groups have yet achieved routine WGS of DNA from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue. This limitation poses an additional technical constraint on the practical ...

Bacillus anthracis, the agent of anthrax, is a zoonotic disease that is transmissible to humans through consumption or handling of contaminated products; it is an aerobic, spore-forming, nonmotile, large Gram-positive bacterium ( 1 ). It is classified as a Tier I, Category A agent because of its suitability for use as a biothreat agent in an attack or commission of a biocrime. This procedure describes the steps to rule out, recognize, and presumptively identify this organism in clinical specimens in sentinel clinical laboratories. Such laboratories are defined as those that are certified to perform high-complexity testing under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment of 1988 (CLIA88) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the applicable microbiology specialty. Laboratory in-house testing includes Gram stains and at least one of the following: lower respiratory tract, wound, or blood cultures.
RESULTS: The mean value for sodium by AA was 144.6 (standard deviation [SD] 7.63) and by ABG analyzer 140.1 (SD 7.58), which was significant (p-value ,0.001). The mean value for potassium by AA was 3.6 (SD 0.52) and by ABG analyzer 3.58 (SD 0.66). The Bland-Altman analysis with the 95% limit of agreement between methods were -4.45 to 13.11 mmol/L for sodium and the mean difference was 4.3 mmol/L and -1.15 to 1.24 mmol/L for potassium and the mean difference was 0.04 mmol/L. The United States Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments accepts a 0.5 mmol/L difference in measured potassium levels and a 4 mmol/L difference in measured sodium levels, in the gold standard measure of the standard calibration solution. The passing and Bablok regression with 95% confidence interval has an intercept of zero and slope one for both sodium and potassium, and the 95% of random difference is -6.32 to 6.32 for sodium and -0.84 to 0.84 for potassium, showing no significant deviation from linearity.. CONCLUSION: ...

The use of açaí palm berries in supplements and the marketing of such supplements has led to enforcement efforts in the United States in 2010. Advertisements of açaí berry supplements have been referred to as scams, both for their deceptive offers as well as for a lack of efficacy. A Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre spokesman described the growing number of scams related to the sale of açaí berry supplements as "a major international problem." Many makers of açaí berry supplements have offered their products on the Internet on a negative option basis, meaning that customers automatically receive new shipments until they affirmatively cancel. Such offers are often billed as "free trials," where users are asked to supply billing information to cover shipping and handling. Many consumers fail to realize that, by giving their billing details, they have also agreed to accept recurring shipments, incurring monthly charges of $45 to $65 or even $95. Common in the affiliate marketing of açaí berry ...

On January 18, 2018, the CFTC filed two lawsuits in federal court arising from alleged fraud schemes involving virtual currencies. In one case, CFTC v. McDonnell, et al., the CFTC brought charges against Patrick McDonnell and his company CabbageTech, which advertised trading advice and investment services to individuals interested in virtual-currency trading in exchange for payment in both virtual and fiat currency.14 According to the CFTC, the services were never provided. Instead, McDonnell allegedly misappropriated the funds, ceased communicating with customers, and wiped the companys websites and social media presence off the internet.15 In the other case, CFTC v. Dean, et al., the Commission alleged that, among other things, Dillon Michael Dean and his UK-registered company, Entrepreneurs Headquarters Ltd, operated a Ponzi scheme in which Dean solicited virtual currency contributions from hundreds of investors based on a promise that their cash would be pooled and invested.16 The CFTC ...

Chairman Chatterjee has indicated that FERC will exercise prosecutorial discretion when addressing events arising during the emergency period, promising that FERC "will not second-guess the good faith actions that regulated entities take in the face of this emergency." Enforcement staff will consider the ongoing pandemic when evaluating compliance programs as part of its Penalty Guidelines analyses or during an audit of operations occurring during the emergency. Enforcement staff also will consider the pandemics impact when assessing the timeliness of self-reports, including for the self-report credit under the Penalty Guidelines. Chairman Chatterjee also encouraged regulated entities to use "lines of informal communication with Enforcement staff" and, for more formal guidance, to seek standards of conduct waivers and no-action letters. A no-action letter allows entities to request written, but non-binding, advice as to whether staff would recommend enforcement action with respect to specific ...
