Atherotech Announces Addition of ApoAI Heart Disease, Diabetes Risk Marker to VAP(R) Test
Date:3/10/2009

vastatin Diabetes (CARDS) study of diabetic patients, the apoB/apoAI ratio predicted cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease events and total mortality better than other lipoprotein variables. The apoB/apoAI ratio is also an independent predictor of insulin resistance in non-diabetic subjects.

People with a family history or an existing condition of diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease - or who are already taking cholesterol-lowering medication - are candidates for the comprehensive VAP Test. In addition, those who don't score within the desirable ranges of the standard cholesterol test (i.e. those with Triglycerides > 150, HDL < 40, LDL > 130, Total Cholesterol > 200) should also opt for the more detailed VAP Test.

The VAP Test reports 20 separate components of blood cholesterol as opposed to four in a standard cholesterol test. It can identify a far greater number of lipid abnormalities (the #1 risk factor for heart disease) than the standard cholesterol test. The VAP Test also identifies markers for metabolic syndrome, a precursor for diabetes.

The VAP Test is available nationwide and covered by most insurance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid. For more information call 877.901.8510 or visit www.thevaptest.com.
