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

tes, high blood pressure or heart disease - or who are already taking cholesterol lowering medication - are candidates for the comprehensive VAP Test, according to Atherotech President Mike Mullen.

"The single VAP Test reports over 20 separate values, including apoB, eliminating the need for nine separate tests that would have to be run in a typical laboratory setting," commented Mullen. "The VAP Test is now well positioned to be the market leader in advanced lipid testing. It has the comprehensive lipid reporting that an increasing number of physicians and practices are requesting without the added cost, which fits nicely in our current economic and health care environment."

Mullen said the patent should have a positive impact on his company's business.

"We expect to see an increase in orders for our VAP Test because of its clinically validated ability to accurately report apoB and because it is quickly becoming more of a standard in determining heart disease risk in cholesterol testing."

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.
