Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aterovax is developing innovative products for patients with and at risk of cardiovascular disease. Based on its pioneering research in atherosclerosis, the company's first product is a diagnostic blood test to measure the activity of secreted phospholipase A2 enzymes, a powerful biomarker that provides physicians with clinically relevant information regarding the presence of destabilized atherosclerotic plaque. Detecting unstable plaque and its potential to rupture, is critical for monitoring the pathology of atherosclerosis and assessing the risk for events, such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Data have been collated from more than 23,000 tests to support the role of secreted phospholipase A2 activity in determining the risk of adverse cardiovascular events.
