'VAP with a Pap' Campaign Targets Women and Heart Disease
Date:2/4/2010

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- More than five times as many women are diagnosed with heart disease each year than with breast cancer. American Heart Month in February aims to spread awareness of women and heart disease, and one Alabama company has found the quickest way to a woman's heart might be through her gynecologist.

A growing number of gynecologists around the nation are turning to Atherotech Inc., developers of the VAP Cholesterol Test, for its advanced lipid profile. The blood test gives physicians a better understanding of a woman's risk of heart attack and stroke. Combining the VAP Test with a Pap test — which detects early changes of the cervix before they become cancer — makes an easy-to-remember combination for two of the most important preventive health tests for women.

"It seems a bit unusual at first, but if there's one check up most women don't skip, it's their annual OB/GYN visit," said Michael Cobble, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Atherotech Inc. "Women may naturally feel more comfortable discussing health issues with an OB/GYN, and this opens the door to other conversations such as cholesterol levels and heart disease risk."

Monitoring cholesterol levels is key to early intervention and prevention of heart disease. Studies have shown that most adult women see their gynecologists once a year for an annual women's wellness visit, but often pass on a primary care physician visit, potentially missing out on other preventive health services such as cholesterol testing and immunizations.
