The 17-Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) Stimulation by ACTH Test is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate adrenal gland function and to help diagnose congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), a genetic disorder affecting cortisol and aldosterone production. This test involves measuring the levels of 17-OHP in the blood before and after the administration of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol and other hormones, including 17-OHP.

ACTH stimulation leads to an increase in 17-OHP levels in individuals with CAH due to enzyme deficiencies in the cortisol production pathway. By comparing the levels of 17-OHP before and after ACTH administration, healthcare providers can assess the adrenal glands’ responsiveness and determine the presence of enzyme deficiencies that might indicate CAH or other related adrenal disorders.

In the United Arab Emirates, this test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a facility known for its comprehensive range of diagnostic services. The cost of the 17-Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) Stimulation by ACTH Test at DNA Labs UAE is 510 AED. This test is crucial for early diagnosis and management of CAH, allowing for appropriate treatment plans to be established, thereby improving the quality of life for affected individuals.

17-HYDROXYPROGESTERONE 17Æ’??OHP STIMULATION BY ACTH Test

Test Name: 17-HYDROXYPROGESTERONE 17Æ’??OHP STIMULATION BY ACTH Test

Components: Price 510.0 AED

Sample Condition: 2 mL (0.5 mL min.) serum from 1 SST for each timed specimen. Draw fasting early morning baseline sample between 8-10 am; administer 250 ug of synthetic ACTH (Synacthen) IV, draw additional sample at 60 min. Ship refrigerated or frozen. Both tubes must be clearly marked with time drawn. Submit both tubes with one test request form.

Report Delivery: 1 week

Method: Radioimmunoassay

Test type: Disorders of Adrenal Gland

Doctor: Endocrinologist, Pediatrician

Test Department:

Pre Test Information: Overnight fasting is mandatory. First basal sample will be taken between 8-10 am. For menstruating females, sample should be given in first 10 days of the menstrual cycle.

Test Details:

The 17-Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) stimulation by ACTH test is a diagnostic test used to evaluate the function of the adrenal glands, specifically the production of cortisol and other steroid hormones. During the test, a baseline blood sample is taken to measure the level of 17-OHP. Then, a synthetic form of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is administered either by injection or through an IV infusion. ACTH stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol and other hormones. Additional blood samples are taken at specific time intervals after the ACTH administration to measure the levels of 17-OHP. These measurements help determine how well the adrenal glands are responding to the ACTH stimulation.

This test is commonly used to diagnose and monitor conditions such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), which is an inherited disorder that affects the production of cortisol and other hormones. It can also be used to assess adrenal function in cases of suspected adrenal insufficiency or adrenal tumors.

Interpretation of the test results is based on the levels of 17-OHP measured at different time points. Abnormal results may indicate adrenal gland dysfunction or other underlying conditions that affect hormone production. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider for a proper interpretation of the test results and further evaluation if needed.
