Enzymes and muscle diseases
M. Plebani
Reumatismo , 2011, DOI: 10.4081/reumatismo.2001.158
Abstract: Skeletal muscle disorders may result in release of muscle enzymes into the circulation and give increased serum enzyme activity. A variety of enzymes routinely determined in the clinical laboratory may be elevated, but creatine kinase is the enzyme present in the highest concentration in muscle, and in every variety of muscle disease is the serum enzyme which shows the greatest incidence and degree of elevation. Aspartate aminotransferase is the enzyme associated most significantly with inflammation. A diagnostic algorithm based on the combined measurement of creatine kinase, aspartate aminotransferase and aldolase has been found to discriminate muscular distrophies from polymyositis and other myopathies. This combination of laboratory tests has diagnostic application and thus allows the clinician to better select patients who need to have a skeletal muscle biopsy as a diagnostic procedure.
The Esr Test: An Old Test With New Contents
Elisa Piva, Mario Plebani
Journal of Medical Biochemistry , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10011-010-0035-6
Abstract: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) remains one of the most widely used laboratory tests. Its clinical usefulness and interpretation are in the monitoring of inflammatory diseases, in particular rheumatoid arthritis, temporal arteritis and polymyalgia rheumatica. At present, the reference method for measuring the ESR proposed by the International Committee for Standardization in Haematology (ICSH) utilizes EDTA-anticoagulated-undiluted blood to perform the test using the method described by Westergren in 1921. Current interest in the methodology focuses on the development of an automated closed system that allows the determination of the sedimentation rate with selected working methods, using a single sample for more than one haematological test, improving the bio-hazardous aspects of the testing procedures. As a consequence, standardization becomes necessary. ESR results should be reliable, despite the increased number of different methods and testing variables. Control materials and External Quality Assurance Schemes are now available, and should be used. In conclusion, innovative techniques may improve the appropriateness and usefulness of ESR in clinical practice, but in addition, they need to guarantee the traceability of results in comparison to the reference method in order to ensure comparability of results among different clinical laboratories.

Treatment-Seeking Alcohol and Cocaine Dependent Individuals with High BMIs and below Average Fitness Levels  [PDF]
Jennifer G. Plebani
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1101588
Abstract: Participation in sports and exercise has been shown to help prevent the development of substance use and abuse among adolescents. The protective mechanisms may involve mood, self-efficacy or simply the incompatibility between peak athletic performance and acute intoxication. In addition, prior research has found that aerobic exercise is useful for reducing tension and stress during recovery from substance use disorders (Read & Brown, 2003). However, fitness and exercise levels among substance-dependent individuals have not yet been examined. As such, we chose to characterize baseline exercise and fitness levels for individuals entering outpatient substance abuse treatment as a prelude to examining activity, weight and other health changes during outpatient treatment. The NASA/Johnson Space Center Physical Activity Rating (PA-R) scale was developed to provide an estimate of a participant’s fitness level using a self-reported regular physical activity, along with height, weight, age and gender (George et al., 1997). The PA-R was administered to 109 consecutively screened treatment-seeking individuals with cocaine, alcohol, or combined cocaine and alcohol (CAD) dependence. Additional data on height and weight, gender and race were gathered. Overall, fitness levels were below average for all subjects, and mean BMI was 29.24, with 43 (39.45%) subjects classified as obese, 44 (40.37%) as overweight and only 22 (20.18%) as normal weight. PA-R findings indicate that fitness levels for participants were average or below. Taken together, findings indicate that there is substantial room for improving fitness and exercise among treatment-seeking substance-dependent subjects.
Cardiovascular natriuretic peptides in emergency

Emergency Care Journal , 2005, DOI: 10.4081/ecj.2005.1.43
Abstract: Natriuretic peptides have emerged as important candidates for development of diagnostic tools in cardiovascular disease being the establishment of the cause of shortness of breath in the acute setting (Emergency Department) one of most interesting clinical application. In fact, the measurement of plasma cardiac natriuretic peptides and, in particular, BNP or NT-proBNP which are secreted by the heart in response to increases in trasmural pressure, is useful to differentiate dyspnea due to cardiac involvement from dyspnea related to other factors. In our experience, carried out by evaluating the NT-proBNP measurement in a population of 122 patients presenting at ED with acute-severe dyspnea, we observed a statistically significant difference( p = 0.05) in values measured in patients showing a dyspnea of cardiac origin (50° percentile 3509 ng/l) in comparison to those of pulmonary (50° percentile 259.70 ng/l) as well as of other factors origin (50°percentile 539 ng/l). At 1760 ng/l, the best cut-off calculated from ROC analysis (AUC ± SE 0.815 ± 0.041), the accuracy of test in identifying the cardiac origin of dyspnea was 0.78, being 0.78 and 0.79 the positive predictive value and negative predictive value, respectively. Comparing NT-proBNP values and ED diagnosis, a disagreement in 24 patients was observed. Using the discharge diagnosis as “gold standard”, four cases (17%) were found to be False Positive (FP) and 11 cases (46%) were False Negative (FN) considering ED diagnosis, while 2 patients showed FP and 7 FN NT-proBNP values. NT-proBNP measurement represents a useful biochemical tool helping ED physician in the rapid and reliable recognition of the cardiac involvement in patients presenting at ED with acute-severe dyspnea, allowing a better and faster therapeutic treatment of patients as well as a reduction in unnecessary admissions that may help to justify the costs for implementing a new biochemical tools in this particular clinical setting.
