Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD) are often caused by a combination of a genetic predisposition and an unhealthy lifestyle. CVD StripAssays® and RealFast™ Assays identify various combinations of genetic CVD risk factors.

Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD)

  • The two major manifestations of CVD are atherosclerosis and venous thrombosis.
  • The risk for atherosclerosis is increased by the combination of an unhealthy lifestyle and variants of genes involved in endothelial dysfunction, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and inflammation.
  • Correspondingly, the interplay of adverse influences (female hormone intake, lack of physical activity, surgery, cancer) and certain genetic variants enhance the susceptibility to develop thrombosis.
  • Testing for disease-associated genetic variants in conjunction with an adaptation of life style can greatly contribute to decrease an individual’s CVD risk.
