  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - What are the potential outcomes of allowing Australian
           consumers direct access to community pathology services?: A review of
           patient initiated testing
    • Abstract: Drummond, Susan
      Pathology differs from many other health and medical services, both in Australia and internationally, in that it is a referred service. The testing is not initiated by the patient (the consumer) themselves but is requested on their behalf by a practitioner who controls what diagnostic or therapeutic laboratory tests will be performed on the patient. With an emerging number of medically sophisticated informed consumers, there has been a major paradigm shift in healthcare, moving from doctor focus to consumer focus. Internationally, governments have enacted policy changes driving healthcare initiatives, including direct access to pathology testing (DAT), for those consumers seeking to take responsibility for their own healthcare outcomes. This review provides a brief overview and discussion of the potential outcomes associated with DAT.

  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - Blastocystis hominis: The fascinating enigma
    • Abstract: Sinclair, James B
      This paper is a concise review of the accumulated studies for 'Blastocystis hominis', summarising the controversial issues, widely accepted theories, and prospective research for this organism. 'B. hominis' is a common, albeit enigmatic and perplexing intestinal parasite that has confounded classification with a plethora of discordant studies. 'B. hominis' is comprised of seven morphological forms and thirteen subtypes, nine of which are found in the lower gastrointestinal tract of humans, with subtypes one, three and four being controversially theorised as causing disease. Ingestion is via the faecal-oral route with reported enteric symptoms generally relating to gastrointestinal pathology and infection. This correlates with the immunocompromised patient, zoonotic transmission, and abased or unsanitary living conditions associated with faecal contaminated water. Standard laboratory diagnosis is by direct microscopy of samples; however recovering the small and morphologically disguised cyst forms are difficult and false negative reports are common.Alternative diagnostic techniques include 'in vitro' cultivation, genotyping by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests but there is no forthcoming consensus due to inherent problems of cost, time, sensitivity and specificity. Mainstream treatment is by metronidazole, however due to the inconclusive status of 'B. hominis' pathogenicity, this is circumspectly indicated. Alternative treatments that have induced remission include nitazoxanide, paromomycin, trimethoprim, sulfamethoxazole, emetine dihydrochloride, iodoquinol, furazolidone, and dietary management. 'B. hominis' has had prolific scientific attention and yet still presents a formidable and fascinating enigma with many exciting potential research projects that beckon the ambitious scientist.

    • Abstract: Nelva, Piero; Kua, Hock; Niap, Ann; Bare, Stephen
      A diverticulum is a circumscribed pouch or sac occurring normally or created by herniation of the lining mucous membrane through a defect in the muscular coat of a tubular organ. A diverticulum may be present in the stomach, the small intestine or colon. Most diverticula are asymptomatic until becoming inflamed and are typically detected by radiography after the ingestion of a radiopaque substance (Ferreira-Aparicio et al 2012).

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Document review checklists for ISO 15189:2012 internal
           auditing: An applied tool for medical laboratories
    • Abstract: Mok, Dennis; Chowdhury, Sharfuddin
      This applied tool comprises document review checklists for Clauses 4 and 5 of ISO 15189:2012 that assist medical laboratories to determine whether their documented information adequately addresses the core administrative requirements (n = 119). The implementation of ISO 15189:2012 requires laboratory management and medical laboratories to fulfil many mandatory requirements. One way to ensure the relevant requirements are being addressed adequately is to conduct a comprehensive document review. The document review fulfils a vital role in preparation for the evaluation and internal audit processes by identifying shortfalls in documents associated with the implemented processes. Conducting the document review using administrative requirements enables internal auditors to identify documents and information that relate to planning, operation and control processes. The document review checklists presented in this paper have been formulated using the administrative requirement headings (n = 22) derived from ISO 15189:2012. These checklists enable effective assessments of the mandatory administrative requirements by medical laboratory internal auditors.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Instrumental interferences from routine biochemistry
           and haematology specimens of a patient infused with Hemopure (HBOC-201)
    • Abstract: Drummond, Samantha
      Hemopure, a liquid bovine-based synthetic haemoglobin oxygen carrier (HBOC-201), was used as an alternative to blood transfusion for a patient with low haemoglobin (Hb) post-surgery. Routine testing was performed on laboratory specimens but a number of instrumental interferences seemed to occur, especially in biochemistry testing. This particular case prompted the laboratory to explore the extent of interference by testing pooled specimens against varying Hemopure concentrations on instruments within the core laboratory. Biochemical analyte measurements most sensitive to the presence of Hemopure were alkaline phosphatase (ALP), amylase, creatinine, gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) and uric acid. An increase in mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) occurred in the full blood count (FBC) as a result of a change in ratio between Hb, haematocrit (Hct) and red blood cell count (RBC). No interference occurred for coagulation studies on the laboratory's analyser. Results from this study can provide basic information about expected changes in analytes/ parameters concerning Hemopure-containing specimens.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Prevalence of maternal antibodies other than anti-D in
           pregnant women and fetal/neonatal outcomes
    • Abstract: Ablitt, Patricia
      Haemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN) due to Rh(D) alloantibodies has declined significantly since the change in prophylactic Rh(D) immunoglobulin administration in 2007. However there are many other antibodies that may cause HDFN with varying degrees of severity. This study determined the prevalence of significant maternal alloantibodies other than anti-D in a large health care network in 2014 and identified the number and types of non-anti-D antibodies,and the clinical management and fetal/neonatal outcomes. Among 7428 antibody screens, 107 (1.4%) cases of non-anti-D antibodies were detected. Of these, 97 patients went on to delivery including 14 patients with antibodies detected either at delivery or in the third trimester; two neonates in this group of patients required transfusion. Detection of late onset maternal antibodies were not often noted in neonatal clinical records and this is concerning. Timely notification of medical staff of such findings would allow for appropriate follow up and monitoring of the neonate.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - The case for certification of medical scientists and
           technicians in Australia
    • Abstract: Wilson, Chris; Badrick, Tony
      Pathology results are integral to 70% of all clinical interventions (including diagnosis, choice and efficacy of treatment) and 100% of cancers. It is therefore paramount that these results are accurate and reliable for patient safety and the integrity of medical care provided to patients. In Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, laboratories operate under the supervision of a pathologist and the majority of laboratory testing is funded by the public health system. In these laboratories, pathology testing is often performed and reported by medical laboratory technologists or medical scientists independently of a pathologist. In Australia and some provinces of Canada, the profession is unregulated. It also follows that medical laboratory scientists in Australia are not required, nor consistently encouraged, to undertake professional development which is usually mandatory with regulated professions.

  • Volume 36 Issue 4 - Terminological clarification of descriptive terms for
           ISO 15189:2012 evaluation and internal audit processes
    • Abstract: Mok, Dennis
      The ability to evaluate and audit against ISO 15189:2012 is critical for medical laboratories that intend to have continuous conformity to the implemented quality management system. The evaluation and internal audit processes analyse medical laboratory practices to assess whether areas of responsibility are conforming to the relevant requirements of ISO 15189:2012. A commonly used analytical technique for these processes is to use comprehensive checklists to collect objective evidence based on the mandatory requirements stipulated by the standard. A quantitative analysis of ISO 15189:2012 Clauses 4 and 5 determined that there were descriptive terms in the form of adjectives and adverbs that could function as modifiers of the interpretation of mandatory requirements. The subjective interpretation has the potential to influence the levels of evaluability and auditability. The descriptive terms were identified and defined selectively (n = 57), based on the relevance to either laboratory management or medical laboratory contexts. This information has the possibility to further enhance the efficiencies and effectiveness of the evaluation and internal audit processes in order to demonstrate continuous conformity with the requirements of ISO 15189:2012.

  • Volume 36 Issue 4 - Clinical experience with measuring apixaban exposure
           in Australia
    • Abstract: Lebret, Stephanie Chantal; Whiteman, Ineka Therese; Thomas, Gareth Raymond
      Apixaban is one of the non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) currently reimbursed on the Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) for stroke prevention in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and >/=1 risk factors for stroke. Following reimbursement in September 2013, healthcare professionals have expressed concern regarding the perceived inability to accurately measure apixaban levels. Research use only apixaban-specific calibrators and controls became available in Australia and New Zealand in October 2013, for use with STA-liquid anti-Xa reagent (Diagnostica Stago). During the 8 months following the availability of this apixaban-specific assay, 51 sets of apixaban controls and 38 sets of apixaban calibrators were purchased by laboratories across Australia. This survey investigated the nature and pattern of use of the apixaban-specific assay throughout Australia during this time to determine the frequency of assay use, reasons for measuring apixaban levels in patients, frequency of urgent requests, average assay turnaround times and expected apixaban plasma concentrations.
