Free erythrocyte protoporphyrin assay in the diagnosis of iron deficiency in the anemic aged subject.
(1991a) had higher initial clinical evaluations of elevated erythrocyte protoporphyrin (FEP) levels thus introducing potentially serious selection bias in the study design.
The definition of iron deficiency was an abnormal value for at least two of the following three indicators: serum ferritin, transferrin saturation, and free erythrocyte protoporphyrin. Persons with iron deficiency and a low hemoglobin value were considered to have iron deficiency anemia (4).
Serum ferritin, transferrin saturation, and free erythrocyte protoporphyrin (FEP) are typically considered diagnostic tests.
With use of these values as a basis, because biological variation data were not available, [TE.sub.a] was arbitrarily set to 50% for fecal and plasma total porphyrins and 30% for erythrocyte protoporphyrin.
The heme crystal has a much lower absorbance at 400 run, suggesting that high malarial parasitemia might lead to increased estimations of erythrocyte protoporphyrin by hematofluorometer (13).
Because the erythrocyte protoporphyrin (EP) test that had been previously recommended for screening is not sufficiently sensitive for BLLs <25 [mu]g/dL, measurement of blood lead was identified as the screening test of choice.
Although the AAP and the US Preventive Services Task Force recommend using erythrocyte protoporphyrin as the initial screening test for lead exposure, it was decided to use blood lead, as the cost for this latter rest was significantly less than the erythrocyte protoporphyrin.
On initial neurologic examination, the child had extreme lethargy with facial palsy and gasping respirations, consistent with lead encephalopathy; laboratory results revealed severe lead toxicity and hematologic abnormalities blood lead level [BLL] 144 [micro]g/dL; erythrocyte protoporphyrin level 593 [micro]g/dL; hemoglobin 8.1; and basophilic stippling).
[10] At this lower BPb threshold, the erythrocyte protoporphyrin test, which is a biomarker of lead exposure, becomes unsuitable for lead screening purposes because of its poor diagnostic sensitivity and specificity (2); therefore, a direct BPb test is recommended for both screening and diagnostic purposes.
These are submitted to the New York City Bureau of Laboratories and analyzed for free erythrocyte protoporphyrin (FEP) (12 ) and for blood lead (13) if the FEP is [is greater than or equal to]35 ug/dl.
