Abstract Background Compared to venipuncture, dried blood spots (DBS) can be collected by non-phlebotomists in non-clinical settings, is relatively inexpensive, more easily transported and stored conveniently. Disadvantages of DBS include difficult assay development and validation. This study compared DBS to venous methods for hemoglobin A1c, glucose, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and C-reactive protein (CRP). Methods DBS collection and venipuncture were performed on 4...

Purpose: The study determines the consent rates for storage of biologic samples for future research with and without genetic studies and describes trends in sociodemographic factors associated with consent. Methods: We performed an analysis of the characteristics of consenting individuals participating in three data cycles of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a nationally representative survey of the U.S. population. Results: In the 1999 to 2000 and the 2001 and 2002 surveys,...
