The Role of Inflammation Testing & Building Resiliencediscusses the fact that 50% of heartattacks and strokes occur in people with `normal` cholesterol levels. In that regard, the DVDpoints out that clinicians recognize that the primary pathology underlying cardiovasculardisease is inflammation. Accordingly, the DVD reviews the need for inflammation testing,which involves a group of blood and urine tests that provide a complete picture ofcardiovascular risk. Incorporating inflammation testing into health promotion programs canhelp identify apparently healthy people (with normal serum lipids) who are at near-term for acardiovascular event. Such testing can also be used to monitor health status improvement. TheDVD emphasizes the fact that inflammation testing provides sophisticated risk stratificationthat enables providers and payers to more accurately target health and wellness efforts.

Among the topics covered:
  • Biomarker testing available to define risk
  • Cleveland heartlab has "it"
  • Inflammation (the response to injury)
  • Multimarker approach for identifying and documenting mitigation of cardiovascular risk
  • Population studies
  • Corporate implications
  • How does it uniquely idenfity?
