  • Primary Hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) Genetic Testing
    four parathyroid glands two on each side They are called para thyroid because they are next to the thyroid gland but functionally they are distinct from the thyroid gland Thus parathyroid diseases are not connected to thyroid diseases like hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism Parathyroid hormone is an important factor in maintaining calcium homeostasis normal calcium concentrations and function When secreted PTH causes an increase in serum calcium via bone resorption decreased calcium excretion from the kidneys and increased vitamin D metabolism Vitamin D causes increased absorption of calcium from the intestines Parathyroid hormone secretion by parathyroid chief cells is normally regulated tightly by serum ionized or unbound calcium Normally if the concentration of ionized calcium rises PTH secretion is then decreased through negative feedback allowing the calcium concentration to go back to normal In PHPT PTH secretion persists despite increased calcium concentrations resulting in many instances in severe life threatening hypercalcemia Most cases of canine PHPT 80 85 result from a solitary parathyroid adenoma a solitary benign tumor of the parathyroid gland Parathyroid hyperplasia affecting multiple glands occurs in most of the remaining cases while the malignant parathyroid carcinoma is considered to be very rare in dogs This condition affects middle aged to older dogs with a mean age of approximately 10 5 years according to the existing veterinary literature without taking specific breeds into account In the early phases of this disease the affected dogs tend to be relatively free of symptoms except for increased drinking and urination in addition to a gradual onset of weakness lethargy shaking and sometimes weight loss Many have concurrent calcium containing urolithiasis bladder or kidney stones As the hypercalcemia becomes more profound organ damage occurs including possible damage to bones as well as severe kidney damage If the hypercalcemia is left untreated this secondary

  • Billing: Animal Health Diagnostic Center
    can be simply defined as overhead non test related expenses To recover the overhead costs one can simply boost the cost of the individual test by a factor that on average recovers all of the overhead costs Most commercial laboratories use this strategy The other way to recover the overhead costs is to assess a fee that separately recognizes these real costs The AHDC has chosen the latter process Since we are assessing a fee accession not individual test we believe it is appropriate to outline what that fee is buying The standard overhead expenses at the AHDC are related to the Receiving unit that processes the samples and paperwork associated with a given accession the Medical Records unit that assures the integrity of the information associated with the accession IT support that keeps the software and hardware operating the Billing unit that monitors the accuracy of the charges and the utilities and maintenance of the facility These types of charges exist in all diagnostic lab operations For the AHDC we believe we have several valued added services that are not reflected in standard test fees We have a Regulatory Affairs unit that is charged with monitoring all samples that have special needs such as exports or surveillance programs Not infrequently the efforts of this unit detect issues with export testing associated with an inappropriate test request or with a timeline that cannot be met Many an export has been saved by their efforts but a fee for this service is not directly assessed The other major valued added service is our Veterinary Support Services unit This group of professionals is involved with all aspects of the accession request from the assessment of whether the correct sample was submitted to the interpretation of the test results in the context of the clinical event For this service numerous phone calls are made 10 15 of all accessions require contact with the submitting practice to ensure that the correct test s is done to avoid unnecessary charges or delays in result reporting The labor costs for this type of oversight is substantial but again no direct fee is being assessed We have chosen to put all of these costs into one simple fee so that it is easy to determine the exact cost of an accession Regardless how we choose to collect fees to pay for our operations we will always strive for our clients to get their money s worth for the services we provide Subsidized Contract Testing The Animal Health Diagnostic Center under contract with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets does not charge for most diagnostic tests performed on New York food and fiber producing animals It does however charge a nominal case fee to cover processing for each accession that qualifies for subsidized testing under the NYS contract This case fee will appear as a partial charge for tests done on more Client Accounts and Payments Payments of all charges are the responsibility of the
