INTRODUCTION Monitoring subjects with the presence of a lupus anticoagulant (LA) on oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT) with a prolonged clottable PT/INR assay may be difficult. INRs can be falsely elevated in patients with an lupus anticoagulants (LA). The chromogenic factor X assay has been shown to be a useful tool in the management of patients who are receiving oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT). Useful to monitor subjects converting from Agatobran and Lepirudin (direct thrombin inhibitors) to coumadin.
INTRODUCTION LA subjects can produce antibodies that interfere with the phospholipid-dependent clotting reactions that are part of PT assays. Antiphospholipid antibodies have been shown to artificially prolong the clotting times of PT assays, making the PT/INR unreliable for monitoring anticoagulation. When monitoring OAT subjects to prevent sub- therapeutic or supra-therapeutic dosing these patients should be individually monitored with an assay such as the chromogenic FX assay that is insensitive to the presence of an LA and does not require a phospholipid surface..
Diapharma Factor X Principle RVV 1. FX → FXa Ca 2+ FXa 2. FXa substrate → peptide + pNA Stage 1: Factor X is activated in the presence of calcium and the activator Russell’s Viper Venom (RVV) to FXa. Stage 2: The generated FXa hydrolyses the chromogenic substrate and liberates the chromophore, pNA. – The color is then read with a spectrophotometer at 405 nm. The intensity of the color is proportional to the FX activity in the sample. Factor X testing may be performed in a microtiter plate, or on automated analyzers.
INTRODUCTION: CONTINUED A multi-site and multi-instrument validation of the chromogenic DiaPharma Factor X Assay kit (DFX) was undertaken in order to evaluate the utility of the assay for measuring FX in subjects receiving OAT. The chromogenic FX assay has been suggested as an alternative approach to monitor patients on OAT who have the presence of an LA.
MATERIALS AND METHODS The DFX micro titer method was compared to a clottable FX (CFX) method in Laboratory 1. All clottable assays were performed on the Diagnostica Stago Inc., STA automated coagulation analyzer using Neoplastine CI+ with a low ISI and other Stago reagents. All testing was performed on citrated platelet-poor plasma with platelet counts <10 9 /L A normal range was established with 30 normal subjects with no known clinical abnormalities.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: 2 Clinical sensitivity was tested using 30 specimens subjects on OAT. The specimens were assayed for FX levels by DFX and CFX and PT/INR tests were performed. Thirty-one specimens positive for the presence of either hemolysis (n=9), icteric color (n=2), lipemia (n=5), heparin (n=10) or LAs (n=5) were analyzed by DFX and CFX to check for the influence of interfering substances. Nineteen subjects with the presence of an LA on OAT and an unstable INR with specimens taken at 8 time points were evaluated by both methods.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: 3 Laboratory 2 used an STA compact and reagents from Diagnostica Stago, Inc., to evaluate both the CFX and DFX methods. A normal range was established using 25 normal subjects on both methods. Fifty-five subjects on OAT were evaluated by both the CFX and DFX methods. Precision and accuracy testing using different levels of FX were analyzed by all methods at both institutions.

CV ranged from 1.9-10.4%. Using 5 known standards for the DFX, assay accuracy ranged from 99.2-100.8% recovery. Laboratory 2 performed precision testing on 3 levels of FX (n=12) for DFX (CV=2.5-5.1%), CFX (CV=4.6-9.2%)

CONCLUSIONS The present studies of the DFX kit demonstrated the assays robustness, precision, accuracy and utility for monitoring patients on OAT with and without interfering substances, the presence of an LA or unstable INR. This assay should offer health care providers an option for monitoring patients receiving OAT, especially those where INR values may not be reliable when an LA is present, and when bridging Agatroban® subjects to warfarin.
