Objectives: Over the past two decades, a large interest in cardiac marker elevations has developed in endurance sports events. The intense effort is not without risk. We aim to see if the relatively cardiospecific biomarkers could show the damage on cardiac muscle cells. Methods: Fourteen cyclists were recruited for an international race (177km). We studied the release of injury related cardiac markers, risk related cardiac markers, renal function markers and blood cytology. The subjects were submitted to three blood test: one before (T0), one just after (T1) and the last one 3 hours after the race (T3). Results: Blood cytology markers, namely erythrocytes, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and average hemoglobin concentration, were found to evolve in a similar way. Renal function markers, such as creatinin, cystatin C and uric acid, showed a post effort increase that might be related to renal blood flow depletion during exercise. Cardiac and muscular markers were all increased at T1. Conclusions: Physiological stress induced by an international cycling race certainly has consequences on cardiac muscle cells. Fortunately, those blood concentration variations are more representative of a transitional state, due to an imbalance created by an intense aerobic effort maintained during several hours, rather than an irreversible injury.

The exact role of biochemical markers of bone turnover in the management of metabolic bone diseases remains a topic of controversy. In this consensus paper, the Belgian Bone Club aimed to provide a state of the art on the use of these biomarkers in different clinical or physiological situations like in postmenopausal women, osteoporosis in men, in elderly patients, in patients suffering from bone metastasis, in patients with chronic renal failure, in pregnant or lactating women, in intensive care patients, and in diabetics. We also gave our considerations on the analytical issues linked to the use of these biomarkers, on potential new emerging biomarkers, and on the use of bone turnover biomarkers in the follow-up of patients treated with new drugs for osteoporosis.

Objectives. While moderate exercise has beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system, consequences of a supra-physiological effort are not clear yet. In particular, the physiological consequences of ultramarathons need to be further documented. The aim of the study was to assess the changes of various cardiac biomarkers after a mountain ultra-marathon. Material and methods. Blood and urine samples were collected on 28 runners (17 men) participating to the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc (105km, total positive elevation: 5600 m) at 3 different times: before the race (Pre), within 1 h after the finish (Post) and 7 days after the finish (D+7). Several biomarkers involved in heart disease (coronary syndrome, heart failure and fibrosis) and in inflammation were assayed on different analyzers such a COBAS® (for CKMB,TnThs, NT-proBNP, H-FABP and CRPs) and KRYPTOR® (for Copeptin). ST2 was measured manually with the Presage kit from CRITICAL DIAGNOSTIC®. Results. Plasma levels of cardiac markers (CKMB, TnThs, NT-proBNP, copeptin, H FABP, ST2) and inflammation (CRPs) increased significantly at Post. Means values increased from Pre to Post as follows: 2.3 to 91.9 UI/L for CKMB (p<0.0001); 7.6 to 31.7 ng/L for TnThs (p<0.0001); 41.7 to 1190.5 ng/L for NT-proBNP, 4.2 to 22.9 pmol/L for copeptin (p=0.001); 3.6 to 107.8 ng/mL for H-FABP (p<0.0001), 29.7 to 126.2 ng/mL for ST2 (p<0.0001); 0.5 to 29.1 mg/L for CRPs (p<0.0001). With the exception of a few (H-FABP, ST2, CRPs) biomarkers in some subjects, all values were back to Pre values at D+7. Discussion-conclusion. Prolonged strenuous running exercise caused an elevation in cardiac biomarkers. Elevation in CK-MB levels lacks specificity for cardiac damage as runners have increased CKMB from skeletal muscles as well. Previous studies suggested that exercise induced TnThs elevation is a benign reversible physiologic phenomenon but this parameter, as well as H-FABP, could be a sign of ischemia. Different phenomena occurred such as stretch of myocytes causing an increase in pressure or volume and neurohormonal activation which can explain the Copeptine and NT-proBNP increase, while ST2 is a biomarker of cardiac remodeling and fibrosis. CRP is an acute phase compound that tends to increase following a strenuous and prolonged bout of exercise and/or muscular injury. As the values tended to return within the normal reference range values within 7 days after the race, our study suggests that there is no permanent structural damage at the myocardium level.

Vitamin D(3) is known to be liposoluble and its release could be a factor limiting the rate of absorption. It was presumed that the presence of fat could favor absorption of vitamin D(3). However, as bioavailability is related not only to the active molecules but also to the formulations and excipients used, the optimization of the pharmaceutical form of vitamin D(3) is also important. The objective of this study was to evaluate if there is a food effect on absorption when a high dose of vitamin D(3) is completely solubilized in an oily solution. In the present cross-over study, 88 subjects were randomized and received a single dose of 50,000 IU of vitamin D(3) in fasting state or with a standardized high-fat breakfast. Assessment of serum concentrations of 25 hydroxyvitamin D(3) (25(OH)D(3)) was performed three, five, seven, 14, 30 and 60 days after supplementation. In fed and fast conditions, the 25(OH)D(3) serum concentrations were significantly higher than the baseline value three days after administration and remained significantly higher during the first month. No significant difference between fasting vs. fed conditions was observed. It is therefore concluded that the vitamin D(3) absorption from an oily solution was not influenced by the presence or absence of a meal. [less ▲]

The U.S. Institute of Medicine considers that a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) concentration >20 ng/mL corresponds to optimal vitamin D status in the general population. Old studies of vitamin D status in the French general population have demonstrated high prevalence of insufficiency. We measured serum 25OHD, 1,25(OH)2D, PTH, calcium, phosphorus, and creatinine levels in 892 French Caucasian healthy subjects (463 men, 429 women) aged from 18 to 89 years. The 25OHD concentration was similar in men (24.1 ± 8.2 ng/mL) and women (23.4 ± 8.0 ng/mL). 25OHD concentrations of <10, <12, <20, and <30 ng/mL were found in respectively 6.3, 9.9, 34.6, and 80.3 % of subjects. Residence in northern France (odds ratio [OR] 1.91), blood sampling between January and March (OR 7.74), BMI ≥24 kg/m2 (OR 1.81), and age 60 years or more (OR 1.99) were significant determinants of hypovitaminosis D (25OHD <20 ng/mL). The serum 25OHD level correlated positively with 1,25(OH)2D and negatively with PTH. 25OHD values below 20 ng/mL were associated with lower 1,25(OH)2D levels, and 25OHD values below 27 ng/mL were associated with higher PTH levels. Many French healthy adults have a 25OHD concentration <20 ng/mL, especially during winter months. Actions to improve the vitamin D status of the French general population are urgently needed.

INTRODUCTION: Very strenuous exercises can be performed on an isokinetic dynamometer in order to evaluate the resistance to fatigue of different muscular groups. Good cardiac function is necessary in order to perform these very intensive exercises; otherwise an acute myocardial dysfunction could theoretically appear in predisposed patients. PURPOSE: Our study aimed to observe the cardiovascular impact (by biological point of view) of maximal intense isokinetic eccentric and concentric protocols performed by a population of sedentary young men. METHOD: Resting (T0) and post-exercise (just after (T1), 3 hours (T2) and 24 hours after the exercise (T3)) blood samples were taken in 2 populations of young sedentary men: 12 subjects (22.5±1.15 yo) for the eccentric protocol and 18 subjects (22.4±2.6 yo) for the concentric protocol. These subjects performed an intense maximal isokinetic exercise of the quadriceps muscles involving 30 knee flexions–extensions for each leg. We evaluated markers of cardiovascular risk (highly sensitive troponin T (hs-TnT), N-Terminal Brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), myoglobin (MYO)), of inflammation (highly sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP)), muscle damage (creatine kinase (CK)) and of oxidative stress (myeloperoxidase (MPO), lipidic peroxides (POXL), reduced (GSH) and oxidised glutathione (GSSG)). Haemodynamic parameters were measured continuously using a Portapres, and respiratory parameters were measured using a Sensormedics Vmax 29C. RESULTS: All the physiological parameters measured presented statistically significant changes. For the eccentric exercise, no significant modification in cardiac (NT-proBNP, hs-TNT) and inflammation (hsCRP) biomarkers was observed. However, a significant increase for CK (T3), MYO (T2), MPO (T1), POXL (T1), GSSG (T3) and ratio GSH/GSSG (T2-T3) was shown. For the concentric exercise, the results showed significant increases for the CK (T1-T2-T3), MYO (T1-T2), GSH/GSSG (T1). Evolutionary trends were also observed for the following biomarkers: NT-proBNP (T1-T2-T3), MPO (T2), and GSSG (T4). DISCUSSION and CONCLUSIONS: No modification in cardiac biomarkers was observed after the maximal eccentric isokinetic exercise but some variations can be observed for these biomarkers after the concentric exercise. However, these changes do not exceed the reference values in healthy subjects. We were thus able to prove that the exercise could be performed without any risk to cardiac function in young sedentary subjects. Nevertheless, a significant level of oxidative stress was induced by both exercises. [less ▲]

Background: The study was conducted to evaluate the analytical and clinical performance of the VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay. The clinical performance of the assay was compared with four other immunoassays against the results of two different liquid chromatography/ mass spectrometry methods (LC-MS/MS) standardized to NIST reference materials. Methods: VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay precision, linearity, detection limits and sample matrix comparison were assessed following CLSI guidelines. For method comparison, a total of 150 serum samples ranging from 7 to 92 ng/mL were analyzed by all the methods. Correlation was studied using Passing-Bablok regression and Bland- Altman analysis. The concordance correlation coefficient (CCC) was calculated to evaluate agreement between immunoassays and the reference LC-MS/MS method. In addition, samples containing endogenous 25(OH)D2 were used to assess each immunoassay’s ability to detect this analyte. Pregnancy and hemodialysis samples were used to the study the effect of vitamin D binding protein (DBP) concentration over VIDAS® assay performance. Results: The VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay showed excellent correlation to the LC-MS/MS results (y = 1.01x+0.22 ng/mL, r = 0.93), as obtained from two different sites and distinct LC-MS/MS methods. The limit of quantification was determined at 8.1 ng/mL. Cross-reactivity for 25(OH)D2 was over 80%. At concentrations of 10.5, 26 and 65.1 ng/mL, within-run CVs were 7.9%, 3.6% and 1.7%, while total CVs (between runs, calibrations, lots and instruments) were 16.0%, 4.5% and 2.8%. The VIDAS® performance was not influenced by altered DBP levels, though under-recovery of 25(OH)D as compared to LC-MS/ MS was observed for hemodialysis samples. Conclusions: The VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay is therefore considered suitable for assessment of vitamin D status in clinical routine.

Among the respondent GPs, 65 (54.6 %) systematically prescribe vitamin D to their institutionalized patients and the 54 (45.4 %) others prescribe only sometimes. Introduction The aim of this study is to assess the profile and determinants of vitamin D supplementation prescription in nursing homes. Methods General practitioners (GPs) having at least one patient in a nursing home in Liège, Belgium, were asked to complete the survey. Results A total of 119 GPs participated in the survey. Among the respondent GPs, 65 (54.6 %) systematically prescribe vitamin D to their institutionalized patients and the 54 (45.4 %) others prescribe only sometimes. The main reasons for prescribing vitamin D cited by GPs who do so systematically are as follows: because they believe nursing home residents are mostly deficient in vitamin D status (92.1 %), because they believe that vitamin D supplementation prevents osteoporotic fractures (77.8 %), and because vitamin D supplementation is recommended by various scientific societies (38.1 %). GPs who only prescribe vitamin D supplementation in some patients mainly do so following a diagnosis of osteoporosis (82.4 %), on the basis the 25(OH)D level (78.4 %), in the case of history of fracture (54.9 %) or after a recent fracture (43.4 %). Surprisingly, 16 physicians (31.4 %) only prescribe vitamin D when they think of it. Interestingly, while 40.7% of GPs always prescribe the same dose of vitamin D, the remaining 59.3 % prescribe a dose that will mainly depend on the results of the 25(OH)D level (94.0 %), the patient’s bone health (49.3 %), or history of fracture (43.3 %). Conclusions More than half of GPs systematically prescribe vitamin D to their patients living in nursing homes. The other GPs usually prescribe vitamin D following the result of the vitamin D status or after a diagnosis of osteoporosis. [less ▲]

We tested and validated irisin (IRI), myostatin (MYO), PIIINP, osteoglycin (OGN), TMEM119 (TMEM) and activin A (AA) and established the analytical performance, reference range and stability (considered unstable if more than 20% increase/decrease in the levels was observed in more than 10% of the samples). We were unable to obtain a valuable calibration curve with the Cusabio kits (TMEME and OGN). Coefficient of variation (CV) was too high for IRI (CV 17-30%), but were ≤ 10% for the 3 other analytes. AA and MYO were stable up to 3 months at -20 °C and -80 °C in serum or EDTA plasma and up to 6 months at -80 8C. PIIINP was stable only 1 month in EDTA plasma (but not in serum) at -20 °C or -80 8C. After 3 months of storage, PIIINP was not stable anymore, in serum or EDTA plasma, at -20 °C or -80 8C. Surprisingly, after 6 months at -80 8C, results returned in the ± 20% for both serum and EDTA plasma. PIIINP levels did not differ between men and women and the RR was (median, 90% CI) 1.2 (0.8-1.6)-6.0 (5.6-6.4) μg/L. The RR for MYO was 845 (437-1312)-6067 (5524-6552) pg/mL for men and 600 (268-1027)-4438 (4026-4837) pg/mL for women and the RR for AA was 177 (132-210)-622 (580-661) pg/mL for men and 98 (49-147)-480 (430-525) pg/mL for women.

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is diagnosed and explored through the determination of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Our goal was to develop a simple LC-MS method for the determination in serum of 2 popular GFR markers, contrast agents iohexol and iothalamate, for routine use and comparison studies between the two markers. A similar contrast agent, ioversol, was used as an internal standard and the method underwent a rigorous validation protocol based on beta-expectation tolerance intervals. METHODS: We adapted the HPLC-UV method from Cavalier et al. to our LC-MS system. Data treatment for the validation was performed using Multiquant 3.0 (Sciex, Framingham, MA, USA) and e.noval 3.0 software (Arlenda, Liege, Belgium). RESULTS: According to the validation results our method will give accurate and reliable results for concentrations ranging from 6.8 to 250mug/ml for iohexol and 6.15mug/ml to 250mug/ml for iothalamate. In our practice these intervals are sufficient to determine both compounds in most patient samples. Samples with higher detected concentrations can always be diluted into range. CONCLUSION: With its internal standard and extensive validation, our method is now ready for routine and clinical research use. [less ▲]

Testing for antinuclear antibodies is the most frequently prescribed analysis for the diagnosis of rheumatic diseases. Indirect immunofluorescence remains the gold standard method for their detection despite the increasing use of alternative techniques. In order to standardize the manual microscopy reading, automated acquisition and interpretation systems have emerged. This publication enables us to present our method of interpretation and characterization of antinuclear antibodies based on a cascade of analyses and to share our everyday experience of the G Sight from Menarini. The positive/negative discrimination on Hep cells 2000 is correct in 85% of the cases. In most of the false negative results, it is a question of aspecific or low titers patterns, but a few cases of SSA speckled patterns of low titers demonstrated a probability index below 8. Regarding the pattern recognition, some types and mixed patterns are not properly recognized. Concerning the probability index correlated in some studies to final titer, the weak fluorescence of certain patterns and the random presence of artifacts that distort the index don't lead us to continue it in our daily practice. In conclusion, automated reading systems facilitate the reporting of results and traceability of patterns but still require the expertise of a laboratory technologist for positive/negative discrimination and for pattern recognition.

OBJECTIVE: Bone changes are increasingly described after burn. How bone markers could help to detect early bone changes or to screen burn patients at higher risk of demineralization is still not made clear. We performed an observational study assessing the changes in serum bone markers after moderate burn. METHODS: Adults admitted in the first 24h following burn extended on >10% body surface area were included. Serum levels of collagen type 1 cross-linked C-telopeptide (CTX), tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5b (TRAP), type 1 procollagen N-terminal (P1NP) and bone alkaline phosphatase (b-ALP) were measured at admission and every week during the first month. Data are expressed as median [min-max]. RESULTS: Bone markers were measured in 20 patients: 18 men, 2 women (including one post-menopausal). Age was 46 [19-86] years old, burn surface area reached 15 [7-85] %. Twelve patients completed the study. All biomarkers mainly remained into normal ranges during evolution. A huge variability was observed regarding biomarkers evolution. Patient's evolution was not linear and could fluctuate from a decrease to an increase of blood concentrations. There was not necessarily a consistency between the two formation or the two resorption markers. Variations observed between two consecutive measurements were lesser than the accepted critical difference in almost one third of the cases. CONCLUSIONS: Considering available data, role and interest of bone markers in management of burn related bone disease remain unclear. [less ▲]
