PLAC Test –D

The PLAC Test for Lp-PLA2 is the only blood test cleared by the FDA to help identify the risk for stroke and heart attack. This simple, non-fasting blood test will give you and your doctor more information about your cardiovascular health, including whether or not you need more aggressive therapy.

A substantial body of evidence including over 65 papers support Lp-PLA2 as a cardiovascular risk marker that provides new information, over and above traditional risk factors.

87% of strokes are ischemic1.

68% of all heart attacks and strokes occur from clots, not from narrowing of the arteries.

The PLAC Test is a blood test that measures the level of Lp-PLA2 (Lipoprotein-associated Phospholipase A2), an enzyme associated with the inflammation of your arteries. Increased levels of Lp-PLA2 increase your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

In most adults, cholesterol causes a fatty deposit called plaque to build up in the walls of the arteries. When arterial walls become inflamed, your body produces the enzyme Lp-PLA2. If the amount of Lp-PLA2 is high, this may indicate that the plaque is more likely to rupture through the inside lining of your artery into your bloodstream, where it may cause a clot that could result in heart attack or stroke.

Why Do I Need It?:

Stroke is the number 3 killer in the United States and cholesterol is NOT a reliable predictor for stroke. Now there is a simple blood test that can help you uncover hidden risk for both heart attack and stroke. It’s called The PLAC Test.

And did you know that 50% of cardiovascular events strike in patients with unremarkable lipid levels (or those that ‘appear normal’), highlighting the prevalence of hidden cardiovascular risk. Find out now if you have a hidden risk of rupture-prone plaque.

The PLAC Test can provide you and your doctor with information about the health of your arteries that was not available in the past.
