List of parameters included in Cardiac Risk Markers:
1. APO B / APO A1 RATIO (APO B/A1)
2. APOLIPOPROTEIN – A1 (APO-A1)
3. APOLIPOPROTEIN – B (APO-B)
4. HIGH SENSITIVITY C-REACTIVE PROTEIN (HS-CRP)
5. LIPOPROTEIN (A) [LP(A)]
1. APO B/ APO A1 Ratio (APO B/A1):
Apolipoprotein is a type of protein associated with high-density lipoprotein(HDL). It represents about 45% molecular mass. It is used to evaluate the survival rate or risk related to heart patients and peripheral vascular disease.
Apo B/Apo A1 ratio test can measure directly:
3. Weight reduction.
7. Severe illness.
8. Reye syndrome.
2. Apolipoprotein-A1 (APO-A1):
This test is used to determine the adequate level of apolipoprotein-A1 in the body. It also helps in assessing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this protein is to improve the body in transportation and metabolism of lipids. Lipids cannot be dissolved in the blood. It is a protein which combines with the lipids to produce lipoprotein particles. That particle can transport lipids in the bloodstream.
Apolipoprotein-A1 test is ordered to:
1. Help diagnose apo-A1 deficiency.
2. Monitor the effectiveness of lipid treatments.
3. Help evaluate people who have a history of heart disease, cholesterol and triglycerides.
3. Apolipoprotein- B:
It is used to diagnose rare inherited apolipoprotein B in the body. It also helps to evaluate the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. It is a protein which is involved in the metabolism of the lipids.
High level of apolipoprotein-B are seen in:
3. Nephrotic syndrome.
4. Use of drugs ( androgens, beta blockers, progestins, etc.)
Low level of apolipoprotein-B are seen in:
1. Weight reduction.
2. Weight reduction.
3. Severe illness.
4. C-Reactive protein:
C-Reactive protein test is used to measure the level of C-Reactive protein in the blood. Low level of c-reactive is normal, but a high level of the c-reactive protein indicates severe disorder and infection.
Symptoms of some bacterial infection:
3. Rapid heartbeat.
4. Nausea and vomiting.
5. Rapid breathing.
5. Lipoprotein (LPA):
This test is used to evaluate the amount of lipoprotein in the blood. High level of low-density cholesterol can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
This test is used to measure:
1. Low-density cholesterol.
2. High-density cholesterol.
3. Total cholesterol level.
