• ACTH Stimulation, Canine (Baseline & 2-hour)
    Code: 126
    Specimens:

    0.5mL serum (SST) each. Centrifuge and remove serum from cells within 30 minutes of collection. Write actual time drawn on the tube.

    Minimum:

    0.2mL serum (SST) each

    Storage:

    Refrigerate. Freeze if stored more than 3 days

    Method:

    Chemiluminescence

    Availability:

    Results available daily

    Procedure Sampling Time:

    Pre and 2-hour post drug: (See test procedure section)

    Reference Range:

    Baseline cortisol: 1.0-5.0ug/dL. ACTH post stimulation: 10-20ug/dL. Values above 20ug/dL in the post ACTH cortisol assay are suggestive of hyperadrenocorticism. However, these results are not specific for hyperadrenocorticism. Dogs with a variety of disease processes may have ACTH stimulation assay results in the same range as dogs with hyperadrenocorticism. The diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism must be further substantiated by appropriate clinical signs and other laboratory assay results. Baseline cortisol results that are low or below limit of detection, which fail to increase with the administration of ACTH are consistent with hypoadrenocorticism.

    Submission Requirements:

    0.5mL serum per specimen (do not submit EDTA plasma)

    Suggested Protocol:

    Fast the patient approximately 12 hrs (preferred, not essential) and collect 3mL of blood. Centrifuge and separate at least 0.5mL of serum for a resting cortisol.

  • ACTH Stimulation, Feline (Baseline, 30-minute, & 1-hour)
    Code: 126
    Specimens:

    0.5mL serum each. (SST) Centrifuge and remove serum from cells within 30 minutes of collection. Write actual time drawn on the tube

    Minimum:

    0.2mL serum (SST) each

    Storage:

    Refrigerate. Freeze if stored more than 3 days

    Method:

    Chemiluminescence

    Availability:

    Results available daily

    Procedure Sampling Time:

    Pre, 30- and 60-min. post Drug: Synthetic ACTH Dosage: 0.125mg IM.

    Reference Range:

    Baseline cortisol: 1.0-5.0ug/dL Peak ACTH post cortisol: 5-15ug/dL Cortisol values greater than 15ug/dL in either of the post ACTH samples are supportive of hyperadrenocorticism. These results should be used in conjunction with the results of other laboratory tests and in association with appropriate clinical signs to establish a diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism. Hyperadrenocorticism is rare in cats.

    Submission Requirements:

    0.5mL serum per specimen (do not submit EDTA plasma)

    Suggested Protocol:

    Fast the patient approximately 12 hrs (preferred, not essential) and collect 3mL of blood. Centrifuge and separate at least 0.5mL of serum for a resting cortisol.

    Submission Requirements:

    Interferences:

    Avoid hemolysis/lipemia (Moderate to marked hemolysis will invalidate assay)

    Interpretation:

    The corticosteroid induced isoenzyme of alkaline phosphate (CALP) is a unique enzyme found only in dogs. Normal dogs have little or none of this enzyme. Its presence in serum is often observed in dogs with Cushing’s disease, iatrogenic Cushing’s syndrome and in some older dogs with chronic disease. In dogs with greater than 30 U/L CALP activities, an examination for clinical signs of Cushing’s disease as well as an investigation of history of prior treatment with glucocorticoids should be made. Additional diagnostic testing for Cushing’s disease may be warranted. The sensitivity for CALP in the diagnosis of Cushing’s disease is nearly 100% but the specificity is in the order of 85%. In other words, Cushing’s disease is very unlikely if the CALP activity is not increased.

    Loading Dose Treatment Protocol:

    1 month into treatment, and again in 2­3 months. If postloading and one­ month concentrations vary more than 10% from each other, maintenance dose can be modified accordingly.

    Therapeutic Range:

    Canine: 1­2.mg/mL (100­200 mg/dl) in combination with Phenobarbital or 2.5 – 3.0 mg/mL (250­300mg/dl) as sole anticonvulsant (without Phenobarbital) * Steady­state drug concentrations are expected in 3­4 months. Due to patient variability, therapeutic drug concentrations should be interpreted in combination with patient’s clinical signs. (Also see Phenobarbital)

  • ACTH Stimulation, Canine (Baseline & 1-hour)
    Code: 126
    Specimens:

    0.5mL serum (SST) each. Centrifuge and remove serum from cells within 30 minutes of collection. Write actual time drawn on the tube.

    Minimum:

    Storage:

    Refrigerate. Freeze if stored more than 3 days.

    Method:

    Chemiluminescence

    Availability:

    Results available daily

    Procedure Sampling Time:

    Pre and 1-hour post Drug Synthetic ACTH Dosage 0.25mg IV or 5ug/kg. (See test procedure section)

    Reference Range:

    Baseline cortisol 1.0-5.0ug/dL. ACTH post stimulation 10-20ug/dL. Values above 20ug/dL in the post ACTH cortisol assay are suggestive of hyperadrenocorticism. However, these results are not specific for hyperadrenocorticism. Dogs with a variety of disease processes may have ACTH stimulation assay results in the same range as dogs with hyperadrenocorticism. The diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism must be further substantiated by appropriate clinical signs and other laboratory assay results. Baseline cortisol results that are low or below limit of detection which fail to increase with the administration of ACTH are consistent with hypoadrenocorticism.

    Submission Requirements:

    0.5mL serum per specimen (do not submit EDTA plasma)

    Suggested Protocol:

    Fast the patient approximately 12 hrs (preferred, not essential) and collect 3mL of blood. Centrifuge and separate at least 0.5mL of serum for a resting cortisol.
