Clinical Research Laboratory Document Transcript

  • 1. CLINICAL RESEARCH LABORATORY Prepared by: Shahid Nawaz Researcher King Saud University
  • 2. OUR MISSION To provide high quality clinical laboratory services for the researchers and scientists of KSU Hospital and beyond; and to undertake research that is clinically focused, ethically appropriate and fiscally responsible.

  • 4. Clinical Research laboratory testing is an essential part of quality health care. It provides Researcher with objective data needed to achieve their goal. Our fully equipped clinical laboratory allows researcher to prepare, evaluate and store samples from various studies. The Clinical Research laboratory Users are mainly medical doctors, research fellows, research associates, scientific officers, research assistants, post graduate students (Ph.D. and M.Phil.) and post doctoral research workers. This multi-disciplinary research unit is such a set up to encourage exchange of ideas and experiences from different clinical experts. Moreover, this arrangement enables sharing of expensive equipment; research facilities and supportive service. Our laboratory is under the management of a Ph.D. Qualified researchers. This clinical laboratory provides specialized assays for research purposes that generally are not available from routine clinical laboratories. PURPOSE Current research testing provided by the “clinical labs” is problematic: i. Research testing can interfere with clinical operations. ii. Clinical labs do not offer customized services or most "esoteric" research tests.
  • 5. iii. No capability to perform special handling/storage or customized reporting. iv. Clinical lab charges are too high for many research studies. v. Consultation with laboratory faculty not routinely available for research. vi. Some physicians have mistakenly sent research testing to the clinical labs without clearly designating that they are research specimens, which can create considerable compliance problems with respect to billing of research services to clinical sources. vii. Services/tests provided only for research purposes (i.e. for the purpose of qualifying a study subject or research only end point) will not be billed to any Patient. Viii. Services/tests paid for by the study sponsor cannot be billed to any insurer or to the participant. ix. Research Laboratory is billed only for clinical trial Costs permitted under the University Management. OUR EXPERTISE O: The scientists and technologists of the Clinical Laboratory for Research have many years experience in the area of blood collection, specimen caring, instruments handling data processing, record keeping. OBJECTIVES
  • 6. The OBJECTIVES of the Research Laboratory is to serve the Researcher/scientists from inside, or outside of the Organization to the best standards attainable (i.e. Quality Service) through: • Provision of Consultation and Support to the Researcher in order to achieve their goal. • Provision of Genetic and General Health counseling and awareness programs. IMPLIMENTATION Contact with different institute Researchers inside and outside the University.

  • 8. FUNCTIONS OF THE LABORATORY DEPARTMENT The Laboratory Department provides state-of-the-art laboratory testing in support of Researchers/Scientists in side and out side the Research center. Laboratory Sections 1-Clinical Chemistry 2- Nephlometry 3- Haematology 1- Clinical Chemistry SECTION LIST OF Tests: - Acid Phosphatase - Lipase - Albumin - Lithium - Alkaline Phosphatase - Magnesium - Amylase - Phosphorus - ALT / SGPT - Potassium - AST / SGOT - Sodium - Bicarbonate - TIBC - Calcium - Total Bilirubin - Cholesterol - Total Protein - Cholinesterase - Triglyceride
  • 9. - CK / CPK - Urea - CK-MB - Uric Acid - Creatinine - Direct Bilirubin - Glucose - HDL-C - Iron - Lactate / Lactic Acid - LDH (Lactate Dehydrogenase) - LDL-C (Low Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol) - GGT (Gamma-Glutamyl / Transterase) Interpretation of Blood Tests: A few test interpretations is below Cholesterol Increased in late pregnancy, the neophrotic syndrome, hypothyroidism, and most hyperlipoproteinaemias especially in familiar hypercholesteolaemia , diabetes mellitus, primary biliary cirrhosis and obstructive jaundice. Decreased in hyperthyroidism, severe infection, severe anemia, protein- calorie malnutrition, long-standing steatorrhea, subacute hepatic necrosis, terminal portal cirrhosis, hypo-β-lipoproteinaemia and abeta-lipoproteinaemia. Glucose (Blood) • Hyperglycemia occurs in strenuous exercise, emotion, shock, infections, presence of circulating insulin antibodies, phaechromocytoma, postgastrectomy dumping syndrome, liver disease, and acute pancreatitis, some cases of pancreatic cancer, diabetes mellitus, acromegaly, Cushing's syndrome, thyrotoxicosis and severe burns.
  • 10. • Blood glucose below 2.2 mmol/L may occur in underweight infants, premature infants of diabetic mothers, healthy infants, prolonged exercise, normal pregnancy, protein-calorie malnutrition, leucine sensitivity, galactosaemia, hereditary fructose intolerance, glycogen storage diseases, insulin over dosage, β-islet cell tumor, dumping syndrome, liver disease, hypopituitarism, adrenocortical insufficiency, ackee nut poisoning, amantia phalloides poisoning, acute alcoholism and poisoning with Salicylate, Paracetamol, antihistamines, etc.. Triglycerides Increased in normal pregnancy, obesity, von Gierke's disease, diabetes mellitus, alcoholism, the nephrotic syndrome, uremia, maintenance dialysis, hypothroidism, cholestasis, biliary cirrhosis, paraproteinaemias, most hyperlipoproteinnaemias (especially hyperchylomicronaemia). Transient increase in serum triglycerides occurs in alcoholic fatty liver, cirrhosis, acute pancreatitis and myocardial infarction. Creatinine Kinase (CK / CPK) • Increased in hypoxia, hypothermia, after severe exercise, multiple injections, cardiac massage, in malignant hyperpyrexia, myxoedema, cerebrovascular accidents, cerebral ischaemia, motor neuron disease, and schizophrenia. • Decreased in thyrotoxicosis. Acid Phosphatase • Increase prostatic acid phosphatase occurs in prostatic cancer, prostatic infarction, and occasionally in benign prostatic hypertrophy. Rectal examination increased the level of prostatic cancer and benign prostatic hypertrophy.
  • 11. • Increased non-prostatic acid phosphatase occurs in primary hyperparathyroidism, myeloma, Paget's disease of bone, primary bone tumors, metastases in bone and Gaucher's disease. Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT, SGPT) • Increased in liver disease, myocardial infarction (moderate increases) and skeletal muscle disease. Albumin • Increased in haemoconcentration. • Decreased in haemodilution, analbuminaemia, inadequate intake or protein, malabsorption, severe liver disease, the nephrotic syndrome, protein-losing enteropathies, severe haemorrhage, severe burns, after severe injury, chronic infections and in malignancy. Aldolase • Increased in diseases of cardiac muscle, skeletal muscle and liver. Alkaline Phosphatase • Increased in cholestasis, rickets, osteromalacia, hyperparathyroidism, Paget's disease of the bone, osteagenic sarcoma and bone metastases. A transient, very marked increase (up to about 30 times the upper limit of normal for adults) sometimes occurs in less than 3 years-old infants who have no biochemical or radiological evidence of bone or liver disease. • Decreased in severe anaemia, kwashiorkor, scurvy, cretinism, achondroplasia and hypophosphatasaemia. Protein • Increased in haemoconcentration and the hyper gammaglobulinaemias. • Decreased in haemodilution, low protein intake, severe liver disease, the nephrotic syndrome and protein-losing enteropathies.
