Atherotech Receives Patent for ApoB Measurement
Date:5/19/2009

Patent recognizes accurate method in the VAP(R) Cholesterol Test for determining heart disease risk

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Atherotech, Inc., developer of the VAP Cholesterol Test, has announced it has received a patent on its method to derive and report apolipoprotein B100 (apoB) using the Vertical Auto Profile (VAP) technology. The patent recognizes the unique ability of the VAP Cholesterol Test to accurately report apoB, the next milestone in heart disease risk assessment.

The patent, issued April 21, 2009, states that Atherotech provides a "system and method that measures the concentration of apoB without requiring a separate apoB specific test." Atherotech added apoB measurement to its VAP Test in 2007 and has since reported more than 1 million apoB results. The VAP Test is the only single cholesterol test that routinely reports apoB.

ApoB is a protein found on all atherogenic (bad) lipoproteins present in blood circulation, and elevated apoB values represent increased risk for heart disease. In numerous well-designed prospective studies, apoB has been shown to be superior to LDL cholesterol in predicting cardiovascular events and in following the progression of heart disease. ApoB is particularly valuable in hypertriglyceridemic and insulin-resistant states where LDL levels would be falsely reassuring and not representative of true atherosclerotic particle burden.

"ApoB is much more predictive of risk than LDL," noted Michael Cobble, M.D., director of Canyons Medical Center in Sandy, Utah. Cobble is a primary care physician, board-certified lipidologist and certified hypertension specialist. "It aligns with non-HDL and VLDL more accurately and is an important treatment target recently confirmed by both the American College of Cardiology and the American Diabetes Association."
