Atherotech to Exhibit VAP(R) Cholesterol Test at American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2009
Date:10/29/2009

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Atherotech, Inc., a cardiodiagnostic company, announced it will exhibit its VAP® Cholesterol Test at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2009. The annual meeting takes place November 14-18 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Representatives for Atherotech will be available during regular exhibit hours on November 15, 16 and 17 to discuss the VAP Cholesterol Test in booth No. 1814, and the VAP Test will be provided via blood draw to qualified attendees. Because LDL is directly measured, fasting is not required. Test results will be returned via mail after the conference.

The VAP (Vertical Auto Profile) Test, an expanded cholesterol profile that directly measures the content of all lipids, identifies a far greater number of people at risk for heart disease than standard cholesterol tests.

"Attendees will learn how we're complementing our VAP Test offering with the addition of cardiometabolic and genetic testing, giving physicians and cardiology practices a single source for multiple test panels," said Atherotech Chief Medical Officer Michael E. Cobble, M.D.

The VAP Test reports 20 separate components of cholesterol, and unlike other lipid profiles, it directly measures all three lipoprotein parameters -- LDL, non-HDL and apoB -- considered necessary by the expert consensus guidelines issued by the American Diabetes Association and American College of Cardiology. The VAP Test is also the only single cholesterol test that routinely reports apoAI, apoB and the apoB/apoAI ratio.

Atherotech continues to grow its cardiodiagnostic business. The company recently added the PLAC Test for identification of increased heart attack and stroke risk and the cystatin C test as an early, sensitive marker for chronic kidney disease. Unlike creatinine, cystatin C is not affected by muscle mass, gender, age or race. Cystatin C has been shown
