Patient Preparation: If a cholesterol measurement is to be
performed along with triglycerides, the patient should be fasting
9-12 hours prior to collection. The assay manufacturer Beckman
Coulter advises: "N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), when administered in
therapeutic concentrations (for the treatment of acetaminophen
overdose), has been determined to interfere with assays for
cholesterol, uric acid" where "NAC interference may lead to
falsely low results." According to Beckman Coulter, the NAC
interference should be insignificant by 12 hours after completion
of the initial loading dose of an IV infusion treatment regimen
consisting of an initial loading dose of 150 mg/kg administered
over 1 hour, a second dose of 50 mg/kg administered over 4 hrs
and a third dose of 100 mg/kg administered over 16 hrs.
