Detecting the presence of a specific factor inhibitor directed against coagulation factor II

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

Patient plasma, normal pooled plasma (NPP), and a mixture of patient plasma and NPP are each tested for a specific factor, incubated at 37 degrees C for 1 hour, and then retested for the same factor. In addition, a new mixture of patient plasma and NPP is prepared using the incubated plasmas and tested after the 1 hour incubation. The percentage of the recovered factor for each individual plasma and mixture being tested is calculated and compared. The procedure demonstrates the effect of a specific coagulation factor inhibitor on that factor present in normal pooled plasma, over a specific period of time.

 

An inhibitor directed against a coagulation factor may arise due to multiple exposures from transfusions in a patient deficient in that factor (as in the case of hemophiliacs), in response to certain disease states, or be drug-induced. Non-specific inhibitors may also be present in patients that will prolong screening tests (eg, prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time). This test is used to qualitatively identify an inhibitor to a specific coagulation factor.

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.

Only orderable as part of a profile. For more information see:

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

An interpretive report will be provided when testing is completed.

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

Occasionally, a potent lupus-like anticoagulant may cause false-positive testing for a specific factor inhibitor (eg, factor VIII or IX).

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

The factor II inhibitor screen is performed on the Instrumentation Laboratory ACL TOP. The assay consists of measuring the factor II activity (prothrombin time based assay) before and after incubation of a mixture of normal plasma and patient's plasma for 1 hour at 37 degrees C. Interpretation of the presence or absence of the indication of a factor II inhibitor is determined by comparing the factor II activity results and the calculated expected values.(Owen CA Jr, Bowie EJW, Thompson JH Jr: The Diagnosis of Bleeding Disorders. Second edition. Little Brown and Company 1975, pp 14-144; Meijer P, Verbruggen HW, Spannagi M: Chapter 33: Clotting factors and inhibitors: Assays and Interpretation.

PDF Report
Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information

No

Day(s) Performed
Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday through Friday

Report Available
The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

1 to 3 days

Specimen Retention Time
Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

7 days

Performing Laboratory Location
Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test

Rochester

Fees
Several factors determine the fee charged to perform a test. Contact your U.S. or International Regional Manager for information about establishing a fee schedule or to learn more about resources to optimize test selection.

  • Authorized users can sign in to Test Prices for detailed fee information.
  • Clients without access to Test Prices can contact Customer Service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Prospective clients should contact their Regional Manager. For assistance, contact Customer Service.

Test Classification
Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.

This test has been modified from the manufacturer's instructions. Its performance characteristics were determined by Mayo Clinic in a manner consistent with CLIA requirements. This test has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

CPT Code Information
Provides guidance in determining the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code(s) information for each test or profile. The listed CPT codes reflect Mayo Clinic Laboratories interpretation of CPT coding requirements. It is the responsibility of each laboratory to determine correct CPT codes to use for billing.

CPT codes are provided by the performing laboratory.
