A blood test, the beryllium lymphocyte proliferation test (BeLPT), was an important advance in identifying individuals who are tritiated thymidine. The radiation levels are...

(Normals: >3.0) Normal lymphocyte proliferation to beryllium sulfate. Note: A normal blood result does not exclude the diagnosis of Chronic Beryllium Disease. If the clinical setting is compatible, a beryllium lymphocyte proliferation test using...

The beryllium lymphocyte proliferation test (BeLPT) is a blood test that measures beryllium sensitization, which is an "allergic the cells at two different points in time.

A medical test, termed the antigen-specific lymphocyte transformation test, can be used to measure hypersensitivity in individuals previously exposed to beryllium and can also be used to diagnose chronic beryllium disease.

The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LPT) is a laboratory test that examines how a type of disease-fighting blood cell in our bodies — called lymphocytes — reacts to beryllium. It is performed on blood drawn from your arm.

In this test, lymphocytes obtained from either BAL fluid or peripheral blood are cultured in vitro and then exposed to soluble beryllium sulfate to stimulate lymphocyte proliferation. The observation of beryllium-specific proliferation indicates...

In vitro blood lymphocyte transformation tests in response to beryllium sulfate challenge were consistently positive with cells from chronic beryllium disease and sarcoidosis.

Immunologic sensitization to beryllium can be detected in peripheral blood cells by the beryllium-stimulated lymphocyte proliferation test (BeLPT).

A blood test, the blood beryllium lymphocyte proliferation test (BeLPT), identifies beryllium sensitization and has predictive value for CBD. whether disease is occurring among...

The beryllium lymphocyte proliferation test (BeLPT) is a blood test that examines how disease—fighting cells known as lymphocytes react to beryllium.

The Beryllium Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (BeLPT) is a laboratory test that examines how a type of disease-fighting blood cell in our bodies -- called lymphocytes -- reacts to beryllium. It is performed on blood drawn from a vein in your arm.

The beryllium blood lymphocyte proliferation test (BLPT) is a test that scientists use to determine whether someone has been exposed to beryllium. Beryllium exposure often occurs...
