The Aldosterone-renin ratio is used to screen for primary aldosteronism



For some patients the level of Prolactin measured by immunoassay may be inaccurate with respect to the level of monomeric, biologically active Prolactin. The Macroprolactin by PEG Precipitation test can help to identify if a patient sample has elevated Prolactin due to mostly inactive protein-bound Prolactin (Macroprolactin).

Aspirin (which inhibits platelet cyclo-oxygenase) reduces the risk of thrombosis in cardiovascular disease by impairing platelet function. Patients who do not respond to the platelet inhibitory effects of aspirin are designated as "ASPIRIN RESISTANT". The measurement of 11-DEHYDROTHROMBOXANE B2 in urine (the principal metabolite of platelet cyclo-oxygenase derived thromboxane B2) indicates lack of aspirin responsiveness.

BNP is increased in congestive heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy, acute myocardial infarction, coronary angioplasty, and hypertension. Elevations are also observed in pulmonary hypertension (indicating right ventricular dysfunction), acute lung injury, hypervolemic states, chronic renal failure and cirrhosis. Decreasing levels indicate therapeutic response to anti-hypertensive therapy.




The CA 125 level can provide prognostic information in the follow-up management of patients with ovarian carcinoma. The assay should be used as an adjunctive test in the management of ovarian cancer patients. CA 125 is not recommended as a cancer screening procedure to detect cancer in the general population

CA 15-3 may be useful for monitoring patients with metastatic breast cancer and certain ovarian cancers. The CA 15-3 values from sequential samples have a high correlation with the clinical course in most patients with metastatic breast cancer.

A large percentage of patients with gastrointestinal tumors (such as pancreatic, liver, gastric, colorectal tumors) and some other malignancies have been shown to have elevated serum CA 19-9 levels. Serum CA 19-9 levels may be useful for monitoring disease activity or predicting relapse following treatment. CA 19-9 should not be used as a screening test.

CA 27.29 may be useful for monitoring patients for metastatic breast cancer.

Measurement of serum 25-OH vitamin D concentrations provide a good index of circulating vitamin D activity in patients not suffering from renal disease. Lower than normal 25-OH vitamin D levels can result from a dietary deficiency, poor abosrption of the vitamin or impaired metabolism of the sterol in the liver. A 25-OH vitamin D deficiency can lead to bone diseases such as rickets and osteomalacia. Above normal levels can lead hypercalcemia. This assay employs liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry to independently measure and report the two common forms of 25-hydroxy vitamin D: 25OH D3 - the endogenous form of the vitamin and 25OH D2 - the analog form used to treat 25OH Vitamin D3 deficiency.

A complete blood count is used as a screening test for various disease states including anemia, leukemia and inflammatory processes.

Increased serum CEA levels have been detected in persons with primary colorectal cancer and in patients with other malignancies involving the gastrointestinal tract, breast, lung, ovarian, prostatic, liver and pancreatic cancers. Elevated serum CEA levels have also been detected in patients with nonmalignant disease, especially patients who are older or who are smokers. CEA levels are not useful in screening the general population for undetected cancers. However, CEA levels provide important information about patient prognosis, recurrence of tumors after surgical removal, and effectiveness of therapy.


This test can detect the presence of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC) in the peripheral blood of metastatic breast cancer, colorectal or prostate cancer in patients. A count of CTC of 5 or more in breast and prostate cancers and 3 CTC or more in colon cancer in 7.5 mL of blood is predictive of shorter progression free survival and overall survival. Physician can draw samples prior to a new line of therapy for baseline prediction. Physician can also draw samples at the first follow up visit for prediction of the therapy. The Veridex CellSearch® System is the only semi-automated system designed to standardize and optimize to measure CTC in peripheral blood. This test is also the only FDA approved kit for CTC detection.

Decreased levels of ceruloplasmin are found in Wilson''s Disease, fulminant liver failure, intestinal malabsorption, renal failure resulting in proteinuria, chronic active hepatitis and malnutrition. Elevated levels are found in primary biliary cirrhosis, pregnancy (first trimester), oral contraceptive use and in acute inflammatory conditions since ceruloplasmin is an acute phase reactant
