Date:1/17/2010

The common cholesterol test is based on 30 year old technology. Although this simple test is often used as a baseline for cardiovascular health, research indicates that half of all heart attack patients have low to moderate cholesterol levels. An affordable, direct access walk-in lab in North Dallas called ANY LAB TEST NOW is now offering the PLAC Test for only $79. The PLAC Test helps identify hidden" cardiovascular risk for stroke and heart attack.

Dallas, TX (Vocus) January 17, 2010 -- ANY LAB TEST NOW North Dallas has announced the launch of a new cardiovascular test called the PLAC Test. The PLAC Test is based on cutting edge medical technology and is the only blood test cleared by the FDA to aid in assessing risk for both coronary heart disease (CHD) and ischemic stroke associated with atherosclerosis. Simply put, the PLAC Test measures your chance of plaque rupture and thrombosis which is the leading cause of most strokes and found in 68% of heart attack cases.

The PLAC Test may be used as a management tool in patients at intermediate to high risk for coronary heart disease or ischemic stroke events. Suitable patients may include patients with two or more risk factors, such as family history of cardiovascular disease or hypertension, even if their overall lipid profile looks normal. Other risk factors include cigarette smoking, low HDL cholesterol, being a man over 45 years and being a woman over 55 years old.

ANY LAB TEST NOW North Dallas allows customers to walk-in without insurance or a doctors order and purchase the PLAC Test.    Owner Greg Johnson states, Early detection can save lives when combating cardiovascular disease, and our proactive approach allows customers to purchase the PLAC Test and already have it in-hand when they visit their physician." The PLAC Test is available to all ANY LAB TEST NOW North Dallas customers and retails for $79.

Unlike many cardiovascular blood tests, there is no preparation needed for the PLAC Test. The patient does not have to be fasting and can be on medications. The test results are highly specific for inflammation associated with atherosclerosis, and are not likely to be falsely elevated from infections, rheumatologic disorders or obesity.

North Dallas residents wanting to get the PLAC Test can call ANY LAB TEST NOW North Dallas at (972) 596-6181. For a complete listing of all ANY LAB TEST NOW locations, please visit their website at www.AnyLabTestNorthDallas.com
