MONDAY, July 1, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- For patients presenting to the emergency department with symptoms suggestive of myocardial infarction, a tool developed to integrate high-sensitivity troponin I or T concentrations and dynamic change during serial sampling
can estimate the probability of myocardial infarction and 30-day outcomes, according to a study published in the June 27 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
in short time intervals has been studied and validated to increase the safety and efficacy of early discharge without the need for further testing [1, 7-10].
relates to the optimal method for assessing the rise and/or fall of cTn on serial sampling
. According to the third universal definition, we must detect a rise and/or fall of cTn on serial sampling
to diagnose AMI (9).
In addition, serial sampling
could have been very useful for establishing the relation between the initial symptoms and the suspected ZIKV infection.
A rise in the number of oncological research projects to elucidate tumorigenesis and the underlying mechanisms, consequently raising the demand for serial sampling
, diagnosis, and therapeutic manipulation, is a growth rendering driver of this market.
Few studies have evaluated variation in serum total IgA levels using serial sampling
. Veys et al.
These patients agreed to CSF collection by lumbar puncture at baseline, and some agreed to serial sampling
. All were followed yearly for 5-9 years, undergoing periodic comprehensive neuropsychological testing.
This serial sampling
enables analysis of tumor genomic changes in real time, allowing clinicians to ensure that the therapy they have selected, based on a particular molecular target, remains relevant.
In summary, we present postmortem serial sampling
data for EBOV-infected animals in a controlled environment.
Design features facilitate high-throughput and serial sampling
as fluid draws from live hosts or tubes, and the ability to collect precise micro-samples with limited training and no specialized lab equipment.
In some previous studies serial sampling
and measurement of proteins during the course of myocardial infarction indicated that the highest serum amyloid A protein values were observed, on average, 67 hours after the onset of chest pain.
Overall, 15 patients allowed serial sampling
; 16 allowed only one sample; and 5 were initially negative, but remained ill for more than 21 days from onset of symptoms.
