2,3-Dinor 11 Beta-Prostaglandin F2 Alpha, Random, Urine

Useful For

Screening for mast cell activation disorders including systemic mastocytosis using random urine specimens

Highlights

2,3-Dinor-11beta-prostaglandin F2 alpha (2,3 BPG) is elevated in the urine of patients with systemic mastocytosis (SM).

 

This test should be used as a screening test for SM.

 

When 2,3 BPG is used in combination with urinary leukotriene E4 and N-methyl histamine, the sensitivity for SM detection increases to 90%.

Ordering Guidance

Although a random urine collection is acceptable, the preferred specimen for 2,3-dinor-11beta-prostaglandin F2 alpha analysis is a 24-hour urine collection; order 23BPT / 2,3-Dinor 11 Beta-Prostaglandin F2 Alpha, 24 Hour, Urine.

 

If ordering this test with NMHR / N-Methylhistamine, Random, Urine, both tests must be ordered under different order numbers. They cannot share an order number.

Screening for mast cell activation disorders including systemic mastocytosis using random urine specimens

Clinical Information
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

2,3-Dinor-11beta-prostaglandin F2 alpha (2,3 BPG) is the most abundant metabolic product of prostaglandins released by activated mast cells. Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is a disease in which clonally derived mast cells accumulate in peripheral tissues. Degranulation of these mast cells releases large amounts of histamines, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and tryptase.

 

World Health Organization diagnostic criteria for SM require the presence of elevated mast cell counts on a bone marrow biopsy and 1 of the following minor criteria:

-Abnormal mast cell morphology

-KIT Asp816Val variant

-CD25-positive mast cells

-Serum tryptase greater than 20 ng/mL

 

Alternatively, SM diagnosis can be made with the presence of 3 minor criteria in the absence of abnormal bone marrow studies.

 

Measurement of mast cell mediators in blood or urine is less invasive and is advised for the initial evaluation of suspected cases. Elevated levels of serum tryptase, urinary N-methylhistamine, 2,3 BPG, or leukotriene E4 are consistent with the diagnosis of systemic mast cell disease.

Reference Values
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

<1802 pg/mg creatinine

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

Elevated urine 2,3-dinor-11beta-prostaglandin F2 alpha is consistent with systemic mastocytosis.

Cautions
Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances

Elevated levels of 2,3-dinor-11beta-prostaglandin F2 alpha (2,3 BPG) in urine are not specific for systemic mast cell disease and may be found in patients with angioedema, diffuse urticaria, or myeloproliferative diseases in the absence of diffuse mast cell proliferation.

 

Systemic mast cell disease is a heterogeneous disease, and some patients may not have elevated 2,3 BPG in urine.

Method Description
Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

2,3-Dinor-11beta-prostaglandin F2 (2,3 BPG) alpha is quantified in urine by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.(Unpublished Mayo method)

 

Creatinine:

All 2,3 BPG concentrations are normalized to urine creatinine levels measured using a Roche cobas enzymatic method. The enzymatic method is based on the determination of sarcosine from creatinine with the aid of creatininase, creatinase, and sarcosine oxidase. The liberated hydrogen peroxide is measured via a modified Trinder reaction using a colorimetric indicator. Optimization of the buffer system and the colorimetric indicator enables the creatinine concentration to be quantified both precisely and specifically.(Package insert: Creatinine plus ver 2.
