Three tests, which can be performed easily in primary care, are UFC, LNSC, and ODST.
LNSC has higher sensitivity and specificity when compared to UFC, but the prerequisite is that patient should maintain regular diurnal lifestyle and avoid tobacco chewing, smoking, vigorous brushing, and topical oral steroid preparation [2, 8].
They found out that of the first-line tests, UFC test was performed in 78% of patients, DST in 60%, and LNSC in 25%.
Any positive test should be confirmed with any of the recommended screening tests above (i.e., UFC, LNSC, and ODST) or with dexamethasone-suppressed corticotrophin releasing hormone (CRH) stimulation test .
We conclude, as we hypothesized with our previously proposed algorithm (4), that contamination of saliva samples with topical hydrocortisone should be considered when LNSC results obtained by immunoassay are markedly increased, particularly when they are out of proportion with respect to other biochemical test results or clinical findings.
 Nonstandard abbreviations: LNSC, late-night salivary cortisol; LC-MS/MS, liquid chromatographytandem mass spectrometry; 11-[beta]-HSD2, 11-[beta]hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2.
LNSC analysis by ELISA and subsequent detection of contamination by analysis of salivary cortisol and cortisone and calculation of the cortisol-to-cortisone ratio.
Falana commended the Lagos State government for the state security trust funds and the creation of the LNSC, urging the House to be very creative and vigilant.
Speaking also, The Chairman of the LNSC, Mr Israel Ajayi, who commended the House for proposed amendments, said that the agency's advocacy programmes for the sensitisation of communities would commence by January.
Ajayi, who noted that LNSC would bridge the gap between communities and conventional police, called for attractive packages for board members rather than regarding their duties as part-time.
Besides, the governor listed core cultural values which are essential to ensure security and development to include truth, justice, hard work and character, which according to him, have been effectively deployed in Lagos State in the creation of agencies such as LNSC
, the Security Trust Fund under the Public-private partnership model to enhance transparency, among others.
He advised parents to be involved in the daily activities of their children, adding that the LNSC
would extend its campaign against cultism to all schools in the state.
