New Omega-3 Blood Test: A Better Predictor of Coronary Heart Disease Than Cholesterol

to measure omega-3 levels, so individuals can determine whether their dietary intake of this important nutrient needs to be adjusted."

In introducing the Gene Smart Omega-3 Index, Gene Smart has partnered with a pioneer of omega-3 research and cardiovascular disease, William S. Harris, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Internal Medicine and Basic Biomedical Sciences at the Sanford School of Medicine of the University of South Dakota and a co-author on the American Heart Association's (AHA) Scientific Advisory on Fish and Omega-3 Fatty Acids published in Circulation (Vol. 106:2002).

Dr. Harris has published over 80 scientific articles on omega-3s, including his ground-breaking study, published in Preventive Medicine (Vol. 39, 2004) with co-author Clemens von Schacky, MD, a cardiologist from Munich, which first proposed the Omega-3 Index as a cardiovascular risk factor.

The Gene Smart Omega-3 Index(TM) uses Dr. Harris's proprietary HS-Omega-3 Index(R) methodology -- the same methodology used in the clinical studies that validated the correlation between the Omega-3 Index and heart disease risk. The science behind the Index has been tested and validated by data from numerous large-scale human clinical studies, including the highly-regarded Physicians' Health Study (PHS), which involved 14,916 healthy male physicians.

"The strength of the association between omega-3s and heart disease is really quite remarkable," said Dr. Harris. "And the benefits of having a high Omega-3 Index, in the 8 to 10 percent range, speak for themselves. Individuals with a high Index have a decrease in the relative risk for sudden cardiac death by as much as 90 percent."
