Answer

No specific laboratory studies are needed, unless concomitant illness is suspected or unless the diagnosis is unclear and believed to be of toxic or metabolic origin. While some newer studies have searched for evidence of specific proteins or biomarkers as predictive of PCS, there is no definitive correlations as of yet.
