2. Procalcitonin, C-reactive protein, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate for the diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis in children. (PubMed)

Procalcitonin, C-reactive protein, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate for the diagnosis of acute pyelonephritis in children. In children with urinary tract infection (UTI), only those with pyelonephritis (and not cystitis) are at risk for developing long-term renal sequelae. If non-invasive biomarkers could accurately differentiate children with cystitis from children with pyelonephritis, treatment and follow-up could potentially be individualized.The objectives of this review were to 1 (...) ) determine whether procalcitonin, C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) can replace the acute DMSA scan in the diagnostic evaluation of children with UTI; 2) assess the influence of patient and study characteristics on the diagnostic accuracy of these tests, and 3) compare the performance of the three tests to each other.We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, DARE, Web of Science, and BIOSIS Previews for this review.

Elevated serum globulin gap as a highly reliable marker of elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate in patients with systemic rheumatic diseases. Serum C-reactive protein (CRP) level and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) are the two most commonly used markers of inflammation in clinical practice.

6. Factors influencing erythrocyte sedimentation rate in adults: New evidence for an old test. (PubMed)

Factors influencing erythrocyte sedimentation rate in adults: New evidence for an old test. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a routine test for inflammation. Few studies have investigated the potential influence of lifestyle factors and common metabolic abnormalities on the ESR. This study investigates the influence of demographic factors, alcohol consumption, smoking, physical activity, obesity, and metabolic syndrome on the ESR in adults.This cross-sectional study covered 1472

7. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and albumin as markers of inflammation are associated with measures of sarcopenia: a cross-sectional study. (PubMed)

Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and albumin as markers of inflammation are associated with measures of sarcopenia: a cross-sectional study. Chronic inflammation is considered to affect physical performance, muscle strength and muscle mass, i.e. measures of sarcopenia. We need to identify a marker of inflammation that is univocally associated with measures of sarcopenia. We aimed to associate three markers of inflammation, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, albumin and white blood cell count (...) , with measures of sarcopenia in geriatric outpatients.Data from the Centre Of Geriatrics Amsterdam cohort was used. Geriatric outpatients at the VU university medical centre in Amsterdam were recruited based on referral between January 1st 2014 and the 31st of December 2015. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, albumin and white blood cell count were assessed from venous blood samples. Measures of sarcopenia included physical performance by measuring gait speed with the 4 meter walk test, duration of the timed up

Two such laboratory tests are erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP), non-specific blood tests often ordered together that are well established and widely used to aid the diagnosis of numerous conditions. The simultaneous and widespread use of both tests has raised concerns about their potential overuse, particularly

9. A prospective study of screening for musculoskeletal pathology in the child with a limp or pseudoparalysis using erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein and MRI (PubMed)

A prospective study of screening for musculoskeletal pathology in the child with a limp or pseudoparalysis using erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein and MRI To determine if the detection of musculoskeletal pathology in children with a limp or acute limb disuse can be optimized by screening with blood tests for raised inflammatory markers, followed by MRI.This was a prospective observational study. Entry criteria were children (0 to 16 years of age) presenting to our emergency (...) department with a non-traumatic limp or pseudoparalysis of a limb, and no abnormality on plain radiographs. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) blood tests were performed. Children with ESR > 10 mm/hr or CRP > 10 mg/L underwent a MRI scan. When the location of the pathology causing the limp was clinically unclear, screening images (Cor t1 and Short Tau Inversion Recovery) of both lower limbs from pelvis to ankles ('legogram') was undertaken. Data was gathered prospectively

Severity of Sacroiliitis and Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate are Associated with a Low Trabecular Bone Score in Young Male Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis. To examine factors related to a low trabecular bone score (TBS) and the association between TBS and vertebral fractures in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS).One hundred patients (all male, aged < 50 yrs) who fulfilled the modified New York criteria for the classification of AS were enrolled. The TBS and bone mineral density (BMD (...) spine showed a positive correlation. A significant decrease in TBS values was observed in patients with spinal structural damage (p = 0.001). Univariate analysis identified disease duration, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), sacroiliitis grade, and SASSS as being associated with TBS. Multivariate analysis identified ESR and sacroiliitis grade as being independently associated with TBS (p = 0.006 and p < 0.001, respectively). Ten patients had morphometric vertebral fractures. The mean TBS

11. Cancer risk and prognosis after a hospital contact for an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. (PubMed)

Cancer risk and prognosis after a hospital contact for an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. An elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) may be a marker of occult cancer.We linked Danish medical databases to examine cancer incidence in patients with a first-time hospital contact for elevated ESR during 1980 to 2013. We calculated standardized incidence ratios (SIR) of cancer compared with the general population, and comorbidity-adjusted HRs (aHR) versus matched population comparisons (...) (95% CI, 5.1-5.6); aHR 5.8 (95% CI, 5.4-6.3)] and was more than 3-fold elevated for most hematologic cancers and for cancers of the peritoneum and connective tissue in the abdominal wall, kidney, and adrenal glands. After the first year, patients were at increased risk of developing especially hematologic cancers. Patients diagnosed with cancer within 1 year after a contact for elevated ESR had poorer survival compared with matched cancer comparisons [adjusted mortality rate ratio 1.2 (95% CI, 1.1

Erythrocyte sedimentation rate as an independent prognostic marker for mortality: a prospective population-based cohort study. A very high erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is usually an indication of underlying pathology. Additionally, a moderately elevated ESR may also be attributable to biological ageing. Whether the ESR is a prognostic factor for mortality, regardless of age, has been scarcely investigated. Therefore, the objective was to analyse the association between elevated ESR

18. ICSH recommendations for modified and alternate methods measuring the erythrocyte sedimentation rate.

ICSH recommendations for modified and alternate methods measuring the erythrocyte sedimentation rate. The gold standard for the determination of the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is the Westergren method. Other methods to measure the ESR have become available. They range from modest modifications of the Westergren method to very different methodologies. The ICSH therefore established a Working Group to investigate these new approaches and compile recommendations for their validation
