CARDIOGEN analyses 125 polymorphisms, of which 114 are associated with classic cardio-vascular risk and 11 are independent of those risks. It has been determined that there is a direct and linear relationship between the number of genetic results (alleles) of risk and the number of cardiovascular events, so that the more risk alleles there are the greater the cardiovascular risk.
The CardioGen genetic profile integrates the genetic information with the clinical information and that on the lifestyle of the patient, and determines:
- The real cardiovascular risk, on the basis of the genetic risk factor and the relative risk, determining the cardiovascular age of the patient.
- The genetic predisposition to develop classic risk factors:
- Dyslipidemias: cLDL, cHDL, triglycerides
- Arterial blood pressure
- Diabetes mellitus
- Nicotine dependence
CARDIOGEN is especially aimed at:
- Persons with moderate cardiovascular risk
- Persons with family histories of cardiovascular illness
- Persons of over 35 years of age classified as at low risk and without family histories.
