Candidate reference methods for hemoglobin A1c based on peptide mapping Beliebt

A reference method that specifically measures hemoglobin (Hb) A1c is an essential part of the reference system for the international standardization of Hb A1c/glycohemoglobin. We have developed a new method for quantification, based on the specific N-terminal residue of the hemoglobin β-chains. Enzymatic cleavage of the intact hemoglobin molecule with endoproteinase Glu-C has been optimized to obtain the b-N-terminal hexapeptides of Hb A1c and Hb A0. These peptides have been separated by reversed-phase HPLC and quantitated by electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (method A) or by capillary electrophoresis (method B). With these peptides and hyphenated separation techniques, it has been possible to overcome the insufficient resolution of currently used protein separation systems for Hb A1c.

Consensus statement on the worldwide standardisation of the HbA1c measurement Beliebt

The HbA1c assay has become the gold-standard measurement of chronic glycaemia for over two decades. Anchored in the knowledge that elevated HbA1c values increase the likelihood of the microvascular complications of diabetes (and perhaps macrovascular complications as well), clinicians have used the HbA1c test results to guide treatment decisions, and the assay has become the cornerstone for the assessment of diabetes care.

The clinical world has assumed that the HbA1c assay reflects average glycaemia over the preceding few months.

Global standardization of glycated hemoglobin measurement Beliebt

The measurement of glycated hemoglobin is central in the monitoring of glycemic control in patients with diabetes. There are at least 30 different laboratory assays commercially available to measure the proportion of HbA1c in blood. In 1995 the IFCC established a Working Group (IFCC WG-HbA1c) to achieve international standardization of HbA1c measurement. The main achievements can be summarized as follows: a) a reference measurement procedure has been established with purified primary calibrators; b) a network of reference laboratories has been developed worldwide; and c) work has begun on implementation of traceability to the IFCC reference system. The IFCC WG-HbA1c recognizes the recommendation of the IFCC-IUPAC Committee on Nomenclature, Properties and Units that the analyte measured by the IFCC reference measurement procedure has been defined as βN1-deoxyfructosylhemoglobin and that the recommended measurement units are mmol/mol. The IFCC WG-HbA1c recommends maintaining the use of the name HbA1c in clinical practice.

Recommendation for term and measurement unit for HbA1c (iFCC) Beliebt

The IFCC has recently approved a reference measurment procedure for measuring the propertf often designated "HbA1c". This analytially specific procedure involving single molecular species allows calculation of measurement results as "amount-of-substance fraction" rather than mass fraction. In addition it provides well-defined metrological traceability to the International System of Units (SI).

As the numerical values of the measurement results will change with the new measurement proceddure, it is timely to reconsider the current termsfor the property in terms of system, component, and kind-of-property, as well as the expression of the measurement result.

Standardisation History Science and Politics Beliebt

Significant analytical improvements have occurred since glycated haemoglobin (GHb), measured as total HbA1, was first used in routine clinical laboratories around 1977. Following the publication of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) study in 1993 the issue of international standardisation became an important objective for scientists and clinicians. The lack of international standardisation led several countries to develop national standardisation programs. The International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) Working Group on Standardisation of HbA1c established a true international reference measurement system for HbA1c and the successful preparation of pure HbA1c calibration material that should lead to further improvements in inter-method and inter-laboratory variability. Reporting of HbA1c has been agreed using the units of mmol/mol (IFCC) and percent (National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program, NGSP).
