VAP Cholesterol Test Helps In Search For New Heart Disease Drugs

udy that beautifully illustrates the value of advanced lipid profiling, direct LDL determination and the value of postprandial measurement of remnant lipoproteins," said James Ehrlich, M.D., Atherotech's Chief Medical Officer and an expert in coronary calcification imaging. And beyond research, the accurate identification of lipid profiles and subclasses can have a major impact on proper individualized therapy and improved cardiac risk assessment, which may also include imaging tests and endothelial function testing, as in this research."

The improved lipid profile of mutation carriers included: significantly lower levels of non-HDL, very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), VLDL3 (the most-dense VLDL subfraction), intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL), real LDL, and remnant lipoprotein cholesterol. Higher (cardioprotective) levels of both HDL2 and HDL3 cholesterol were also reported along with apparent cardioprotection as measured by decreased prevalence of coronary artery calcification.

The VAP Test, which is covered by most insurance carriers and Medicare, provides physicians with direct measurement of LDL, HDL and all relevant cholesterol subclasses. These important but often overlooked subclasses include non-HDL, particle number as determined by accurate apoB, and emerging risk factors such as Lp(a), low-density lipoprotein remnants and small dense LDL.

VAP technology has been used in more than 100 clinical trials and will continue to play an important role in clinical practice and as a valuable analytical research tool. The VAP Test is available nationwide.
