Drug of Abuse Testing
Drug of abuse testing is a technical analysis of a biological specimen, for example urine, hair, blood, breath, sweat, and/or oral fluid/saliva-to determine the presence or absence of specified drugs or their metabolites. A drug's overall effect on a particular person depends on the response of the person's body to the substance, on the quantity and combination taken, and when it was taken.
Major applications of drug testing include detection of the presence of performance enhancing steroids in sport, employers screening for drugs prohibited by law (such as cannabis, cocaine and heroin) and police officers testing for the presence and concentration of alcohol (ethanol) in the blood commonly. In 2009 the number of drug-related emergency room visits in the United States reached 4.6 million. Of these visits, cocaine and heroin represent the largest portion of illicit drugs at 43 and 22%, respectively, followed by methamphetamine, PCP, MDMA (known as ecstasy), and LSD. For pharmaceutical drugs, oxycodone, hydrocodone and diazepam are at 14.1, 8.4, 2.4%, respectively, and acetaminophen and ibuprofen are at 4.8, 2.7%, respectively. Overdose can result in a variety of symptoms. For example, cocaine may cause myocardial infarction, hypothermia, seizures, hallucinations, and/or arrhythmias. Acetaminophen overdose symptoms include abdominal pain, convulsions and sweating.
Screening and verification are two approaches to determine drug abuse and overdose. Sophisticated instruments, such as gas chromatographs coupled with mass spectrometers, are used to verify drug identification, as well as provide quantification. Unfortunately, these analyses, performed in the clinical laboratory, usually take in excess of an hour to perform, delaying patient diagnosis and selection of appropriate medical care. Drug of Abuse Test, as screening devices, provides immediate results for drug screening. Results usually come within 5–20 min with high sensitivity and ease of use. Appropriate quality-control specimens should also be analyzed to ensure the validity of the screening tests performed. Any positive results determined by drug of abuse test should be confirmed by a more specific laboratory method to ensure that no false-positive results are being used for diagnostic purposes.
