HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) CHOLESTEROL PANEL
- Apo A-I (2 polymorphisms)
- Apo A-IV (2 polymorphisms)
- CETP Taq 1 B LPL (3 polymorphisms)
High Density Lipoprotein, the so called; "good cholesterol", is important in transporting and clearing cholesterol from the blood. In some cases, gene polymorphisms can improve the efficiency of HDL and reduce one's risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) below that of the general population. In other cases, gene polymorphisms interfere with normal function and increase the risk for CAD
LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) CHOLESTEROL PANEL
- Apo B-100 gene polymorphism
- Apo E gene polymorphism
- CETP gene polymorphism
- LPL gene polymorphism
These tests identify a genetic predisposition to lipid imbalances either reduced HDL, elevated LDL or elevated LDL and Triglyceride levels together (LPL test).
- PlA2 gene polymorphism
- Factor V Leiden gene polymorphism
- Prothrombin gene polymorphism
- MTHFR gene polymorphism
These genotype tests identify a genetic predisposition to thrombosis (blood clots) in either the arterial or venous system or both.
- ACE gene polymorphism
- AT1R gene polymorphisme
- NOS gene polymorphism
These genetic tests identify patients who are genetically predisposed to high blood pressure. In the case of ACE and eNOS there is also an association with smooth muscle proliferation which could lead to stent restenosis.
(Available in the near future)
MISCELLANEOUS CARDIOVASCULAR RISK PANEL
This genetic test identifies persons who are predisposed to the development of hemochromatosis, one of the most common genetic disorders in Caucasian Americans. Hemochromatosis can lead to various diseases including heart disease.
