SPECIFIC LIPOPROTEIN STATUS (Apo A-1 + Apo B + Lp [a])
New specific laboratory package of analysis for assessing the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases
Apolipoproteins (Apo A-I and Apo B) are the main protein components of liporotein complexes (HDL and LDL) responsible for the transport of lipids in the body. Studies have shown that the Apo A-I and Apo B analyzes are useful in assessing the risk of atherosclerosis and have a higher prognostic value than independent analyzes of HDL and LDL. Persons with atherosclerotic vascular changes often exhibit reduced levels of Apo AI and increased levels of Apo B. A particularly powerful parameter for assessing the risk of atherosclerosis is the coefficient Apo AI / Apo B: the greater the value of the coefficient, the greater the risk of atherosclerosis.
Lipoprotein (a) (Lp [a]) consists of two components: low density lipoprotein (LDL) with apoliprotein B-100 as a protein component. Determination of Lp (a) in the blood is useful for the management of coronary heart disease (CBS) in persons with an existing disease or family CBS history. Increased concentrations of Lp (a) are a direct indication of an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
The combination of these analyzes, the so-called SPECIFIC LIPOPROTEIN STATUS (Apo A-1 + Apo B + Lp [a]), is a new screening tool / marker for determining the risk of cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic vascular changes in individuals without and with a prior history of existence disease. This combination of analyzes allows and is crucial for diagnosis, monitoring of response to therapy, and determining the risk significantly helps to prevent the development of many pathological conditions.
The tests in the Avicenna Laboratory are highly sensitive and specific, they work on a fully automated instrument from Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, and the automated procedure and high-precision technology provide additional reliability and objectivity for accurate and accurate results.
