Demand for Vitamin 25(OH) D testing is going through the roof!
In recent years, it has been, hands-down, the fastest-growing
test by volume. Your lab has an unprecedented opportunity to take
advantage of this growth and add value to physicians and patients
by increasing your clinical knowledge about Vitamin D.
information on the latest developments in Vitamin D testing
when you join THE DARK REPORT and DARK DAILY for this exceptional
audio conference, "The A-to-Z of Vitamin D: Why
It's Today's Hottest Lab Test," on Wednesday,
February 24, 2010.
audio conference features expert Bruce Hollis, Ph.D., Professor
of Pediatrics and Neonatology at the Medical University of South
Carolina. He is recognized as the inventor of the first successful
Vitamin A immunoassay in the 1980s and is a well-known international
authority on Vitamin D. In fact, the depth and breadth of his
insights about Vitamin D and its essential role in optimum health
motivated a number of experienced pathologists and laboratory
scientists to leave last year's Executive War College to purchase
Vitamin D supplements!
as Dr. Hollis provides details of recent clinical studies that
will help explain how new knowledge about Vitamin D is changing
the role it plays in a growing number of conditions and diseases.
You'll also learn which methodologies are being used to conduct
Vitamin D testing and what the advantages and limitations are
for each type of Vitamin 25(OH)D assay. And find out why the
Vitamin 25(OH)D levels and reference ranges used to report the
results generated by different Vitamin 25(OH)D test methodologies
can confuse patients and physicians.
get the latest information on the vigorous debate going on about
what level of Vitamin D should be used by clinicians to determine
a patient's sufficiency. Find out how the healthcare establishment
picked an RDA number that—as clinical knowledge advances—is
much too low to support optimum health. And how new clinical studies
are providing persuasive evidence that the daily intake of Vitamin
D should be closer to 5,000 units per day.
the changing science behind Vitamin D and why it is the fast-growing
assay, by volume, on your lab's test menu is critical to the future
success of your lab. At the end of this session, you'll come away
with steps you can take that will help position your laboratory
as a valuable resource on all aspects of Vitamin D testing.
surging demand for Vitamin D testing has great clinical and financial
importance for your laboratory. Order

Hollis has studied vitamin D metabolism, molecular
function and assay techniques for the past 35 years.
He is a trained nutritional biochemist who has studied
maternal and infant nutrition related to vitamin D for
his entire tenure. He earned his Ph.D. in 1979 from
of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. Hollis currently has
Institutes of Health (NIH) projects investigating
vitamin D requirements during pregnancy and lactation
as well as its role in the development of childhood
asthma and infection prevention.
