  • Causa
    Siemens has confirmed that the presence of dhea-s (a metabolite of dhea, a steroid hormone that may be used as part of in vitro fertilisation (ivf) protocols to improve ovarian response and ivf treatment outcomes) causes falsely elevated progesterone results on certain platforms around the clinically important decision level of approximately 1 ng/ml (3.18 nmol/l) of progesterone. this threshold is used by some ivf protocols to determine whether to proceed with fresh embryo transfer in the current cycle.
  • Acción
    Affected assays should not be used to report results for patients who are taking DHEA supplements. For patients taking DHEA supplements, an alternate method such as Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (LCMS) which is not expected to show cross reactivity to DHEA-S should be used to measure progesterone concentrations. Siemens’ Progesterone assays may continue to be used to report results for patients who are not taking DHEA supplements. A review of previously generated results is at the discretion of the laboratory.
