The CardioGENE lab test identifies inherited genetic markers in blood samples which drive pathways to prevent cardiovascular issues with prophylactic targeted treatment
New blood test could prevent premature death from heart attacks and stroke
You won’t find test tubes or chemicals at Ampel Biosolutions. Instead, the company uses computers to study huge amounts of medical information – to identify genes responsible for auto-immune, kidney, skin, neurologic and infectious diseases. Now, the firm says it’s got a blood test for cardiovascular events at an early age.
