1 The Relationship of the International Normalized Ratio () to the Prothrombin Time (PT) By: William DePond MD, President and Chief Medical Officer MEDLAB In 1983, it was determined that patients receiving long-term anticoagulant therapy may be subject to unnecessary risks of bleeding or thromboembolism because of variability in the commercial thromboplastins used to determine prothrombin time (PT) and consequent uncertainty about the actual intensity of anticoagulation. The accuracy of the PT was noted to be system-dependent showing variations in results due to marked variability in the response of commercial thromboplastin reagents to clotting factors (II, VII, X). This led to the introduction of the International Normalized Ratio (), a method developed to normalize the clotting time value by correcting for differences in reagent responsiveness. Thus, laboratory monitoring of oral anticoagulant therapy could be standardized. Each lot of thromboplastin is tested against an international standard and the relationship is expressed as the International Sensitivity Index (ISI). The uses the ISI to equate all thromboplastins to the reference thromboplastin through the following equation: = (patient PT/mean normal PT) ISI. This logarithmic relationship is easily seen in the table below comparing various ISI reagents and the variation of seconds compared to the. A patient with an of 2.0 (remember the s will be equivalent) will show a PT of 26.1 seconds using a sensitive ISI reagent (1.0) versus 16.0 seconds an insensitive ISI reagent (2.4). PT seconds vs. ISI ISI=1.0 ISI=1.6 ISI=2.0 ISI= Reagents with lower ISI values are more responsive to the effects of Warfarin therapy and thus have longer PTs. When a sample from a patient stabilized on Warfarin therapy is tested using two thromboplastin reagents with two different ISIs, the PT (seconds) will be higher with the more sensitive (lower ISI) thromboplastin. Conversely, the PT (seconds) will be lower with the less sensitive (higher ISI) reagent. Nevertheless, the values will be equivalent. The College of American Pathologists (CAP) Conference XXXI on Laboratory Monitoring of Anticoagulant Therapy published a recommendation that laboratories use thromboplastins with an ISI between 0.9 and 1.7.

2 The use of sensitive thromboplastins is supported by how variations (or errors) in ISI values influence the. Variations in ISI can occur due to inherent imprecision in the manufacturer-assigned ISI, changes during transportation or local instrument effect. A thromboplastin reagent with a lower ISI value results in a wider range of PT ratios to obtain a therapeutic. This enhances patient safety. Despite the system, significant inter-laboratory variation and inaccuracies persist in laboratories which can be can reduce by using a sensitive thromboplastin with an instrument-specific ISI value, determining the geometric mean normal PT for each lot of thromboplastin and ensuring the calculation uses the appropriate ISI for reagent lot. If a laboratory uses the PT (seconds) to trigger a critical value call to a clinician, when a change of thromboplastin reagents is made to one with a lower ISI, the laboratory will need to adjust the PT critical value. If a laboratory uses the for triggering a critical value call, then a change in thromboplastin reagent would have little impact to critical value reporting. The normal range for the for a healthy person is Recommendations for therapeutic levels of anticoagulation based on can be found in "Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy, 8th Ed: ACCP Guidelines", published in the June 2008 (Supplement) issue of Chest. An of 2.0 to 3.0 is recommended for most indications. The guidelines are helpful but do replace clinical judgment in monitoring patients, as patients vary in their response to oral anticoagulation. Such variations in patient response may be due to intrinsic factors such as genetic factors or extrinsic factors such as medications, disease processes and/or diet. The tables below show some of these factors and their impact on a patient s response to anticoagulation therapy.

3 Cytochrome P450 2C9 and VKORC1 Mutation Analysis Clinical Significance: Warfarin (coumadin) therapy is associated with significant complications because of its narrow therapeutic index and large interpatient dosage variation necessary to achieve an optimal therapeutic response. This variation is due to both genetic and environmental factors. A promoter variant (-1639 G>A) of the Vitamin K epoxide complex subunit 1 (VKORC1) accounts for 25%-44% of this variability and variants of the cytochrome P450 enzyme 2C9 (CYP2C9) account for 10%-15% of this variability. Identification of these Warfarin sensitive variants of the VKORC1 and the CYP2C9 genes may allow a more individualized therapy and reduced risk of bleeding complications.
