Serum AMH measurement became a key element in clinical practice, especially before using Assisted reproductive techniques (ART). However, many AMH kits exist giving different AMH results, leading to a confusion in their interpretation. Until recently, only manual ELISA kits existed (mainly Gen II Beckman, EIA/AMH Immunotech and two Anshlab kits) reporting non-interchangeable results. High and low AMH cut-off values, mainly useful to adapt therapeutics in ART, were different between kits. Since the end of 2014, the arrival of two automatic assays (Access Dxi Beckman and AMH Elecsys Roche) seems to improve the sensitivity and the reproducibility of AMH measurement. It could simplify the interpretation of AMH values and improve our clinical choices. This review synthetizes the main comparisons between the different AMH kits available in 2017 to help clinicians in their daily clinical practice.

The ability to learn and to deal with new situations and to deal effectively with tasks involving abstractions.
Immune complex disease caused by the administration of foreign serum or serum proteins and characterized by fever, lymphadenopathy, arthralgia, and urticaria. When they are complexed to protein carriers, some drugs can also cause serum sickness when they act as haptens inducing antibody responses.
All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
One of the Indian Ocean Islands, east of Madagascar. Its capital is Saint-Denis. It was discovered in 1507 by the Portuguese and claimed by France in 1638. It was first colonized in 1662 as Isle de Bourbon but renamed Reunion in 1793. In 1946 it was made an overseas department of France. The name commemorates the reunion of the revolutionaries from Marseilles with the National Guard in Paris in 1792. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1011; Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p454; French Embassy)
The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.
Standard antiretroviral therapy (ART) consists of the combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to maximally suppress the HIV virus and stop the progression of HIV disease. Huge reductions have been seen in rates of death and suffering whe...

Immunoassays are quick and accurate tests to detect specific molecules. Immunoassays rely on an antibody to bind to the specific structure of a molecule. Antibodies are proteins generated by animals in response to the invasion of a foreign molecule (anti...
