ALTERNATE

The advanced lipid profile provides a more comprehensive assessment of dyslipidemia and cardiovascular risk than standard lipid panel measurements.

The assay manufacturer, Roche, notes that N-acetylcysteine, when
administered in high concentrations (such as for treatment of
acetaminophen overdose), can interfere with their assay for HDL
cholesterol, leading to falsely low results.

Only serum is acceptable

Patient Preparation

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 hr, a second dose of 50 mg/kg administered over 4
hrs and a third dose of 100 mg/kg administered over 16 hrs.
