Atherotech VAP Cholesterol Test Meets Updated ADA, ACC Measurement and Treatment Guidelines for High Risk Patients
Date:4/22/2008

LDL, Non-HDL and apoB measurement helps physicians guide therapy for

cardiometabolic risk patients

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The determination of LDL, non-HDL and apoB are now recognized as valid, accurate and recommended methods of guiding and achieving the best treatment goals for patients with cardiometabolic risk (CMR). The VAP(R) Cholesterol Test (Atherotech, Inc.) is the only commercially available advanced lipid profile that routinely reports all three lipoprotein parameters considered necessary by recent expert consensus guidelines (ADA-ACC).

Patients with Type 2 diabetes are at increased risk of CMR and cardiovascular disease due to several factors, including lipoprotein abnormalities identified through cholesterol testing. Because many patients with CMR (including Type 2 diabetics) have relatively normal levels of LDL, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) convened a consensus conference in association with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and has issued updated guidelines for the measurement of lipoproteins such as LDL, HDL, non-HDL and apoB in CMR patients.

"Doctors treating patients with cardiometabolic risk now have clear guidelines to follow, including specific treatment targets for non-HDL and apoB that are individualized to the magnitude of risk," said Atherotech Chief Medical Officer James Ehrlich, M.D. "The VAP Test is the only comprehensive lipid profile out there that routinely addresses and is compliant with both existing NCEP ATP III guidelines and the new ADA-ACC consensus statement."

The consensus statement confirms the importance of apoB, articulates its relationship to non-HDL and gives specific recommendations on treatment targets and managing residual risk. In addition to supporting existing (National Institutes of Health) NIH guidelines for LDL measurement and treatment, the ADA-ACC consensus panel recommends the calculation of non-HDL cholesterol on
