Effects of haemolysis, icterus and lipaemia
on coagulation tests as performed on Stago STA-Compact-Max analyser.
The size, level of saturation, and positional distribution of fatty acids in TAGs derived from the diet are known to have important effects on cell lipids and lipaemia
, whereby this food source could improve the health of the individual (ALMEIDA et al.
Hypertriglyceridaemia, postprandial lipaemia
and non-HDL cholesterol.
The number of samples reported under lipaemia
on our study reports is actually a measure of the turbidity of the sample.
Like any other turbidimetric assays, the VWF:Ac assay could theoretically be compromised by several analytical factors, such as interference with icteric, lipaemia
, rheumatoid factor, haemolysis, and some specific medications.
With respect to lipid metabolism, both HFHCM-C and HFHCM-S induced lipaemia
at 2 and 3 hours; however, TG increase was significantly lower after HFHCM-S compared to HFHCM-C (HFHCM-S versus HFHCM-C: p < 0.
However, another study has reported that postprandial lipaemia
status, including inactive monomeric LPL protein level, was not statistically changed after experimentally-induced standing (11).
Pulses and lipaemia
, short- and long-term effect: potential in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Sodium bicarbonated mineral water de creases postprandial lipaemia
in postmenopausal women compared to a low mineral water.
Substances or factors that may lead to assay interferenc Endogenous substances or factors Exogenous substances * Haemolysis * Test tube additives * Lipaemia
* Ethylenediaminetetracetic acid * Icterus (bilirubinaemia) (EDTA) * Monoclonal antibodies * Citrate and auto-antibodies * Sodium fluoride (NaF) * Oxalate * Drugs * Contrast media * Intravenous fluids
Contamination by haemolysis or lipaemia
is best avoided, but does not interfere with this assay.
Eleven cases had hypercholesterolaemia; eight had xanthoma, one had xanthelasma, two had hypo pigmentation, three had corneal arcus, one had lipaemia
retinalis and six had cardiac manifestations among which one case had myocardial infarction and one case died.
