Febrile Whole Blood Specimen Collection and Testing

2018-04-20 09:47:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Whole blood samples will be collected from febrile patients presenting with fever of unknown origin and flu-like syndromes. Collection sites will consent patients and collect one (1) 4 mL whole blood sample from adults and either (1) 2 mL pediatric whole blood sample or 0.5 mL whole blood sample collected in a micro collection container from pediatric patients from each patient enrolled into the study. Study site will test whole blood samples received from collection sites daily using the Applied Biosystems™ Bacillus anthracis Detection Kit. Data generated will demonstrate product specificity when testing febrile whole blood samples.

Description

Whole blood samples will be collected from febrile patients presenting with fever of unknown origin and flu-like syndromes. Collection sites will be advised of collection requirements specific to patient population with the goal of collecting samples form patient between the ages of 2-89 years of age. Samples collected will be de-identified and assigned a specific study number. Study numbers and labels will be provided to collection site by the study monitor. Samples must be shipped to MRIGlobal or designated study site on the day of collection.

Collection sites will consent patients and collect one (1) 4 mL whole blood sample from adults and either (1) 2 mL pediatric whole blood sample or 0.5 mL whole blood sample collected in a micro collection container from pediatric patients (anticoagulant: K2EDTA or defined alternative) from each patient enrolled into the study. Patients may not be enrolled in the study more than once. Patients considered for enrollment will be logged on an enrollment log. Log must be reviewed by the site prior to considering a patient for study enrollment to confirm enrollment status. Samples collected will be de-identified and assigned a specific study number. Study numbers and labels will be provided to collection site by the study monitor.

Study site will accept or reject samples based on shipping verification procedures and then process samples acceptable for testing within 24 hours of receipt. Sample testing must be performed in accordance with the Applied Biosystems™ Bacillus anthracis Detection Kit instructions for use.

At study start, study site will test whole blood samples received from collection sites daily (e.g. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) using the Applied Biosystems™ Bacillus anthracis Detection Kit. No reference testing will be required since the study is designed only to demonstrate product specificity. Samples are assumed to be negative for Bacillus anthracis. A minimum of 50, but likely 100 febrile whole blood samples will be tested at MRIGlobal.

Data generated will demonstrate product specificity when testing febrile whole blood samples.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acute infection caused by the spore-forming bacteria BACILLUS ANTHRACIS. It commonly affects hoofed animals such as sheep and goats. Infection in humans often involves the skin (cutaneous anthrax), the lungs (inhalation anthrax), or the gastrointestinal tract. Anthrax is not contagious and can be treated with antibiotics.

A species of bacteria that causes ANTHRAX in humans and animals.

Infection of cattle, sheep, or goats with protozoa of the genus THEILERIA. This infection results in an acute or chronic febrile condition.

Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)

Viruses whose host is Bacillus. Frequently encountered Bacillus phages include bacteriophage phi 29 and bacteriophage phi 105.
