Equip patients with the personal health insights they need to understand and lower their risk of coronary artery disease

Patient eligibility

The Allelica CAD PRS test is for everyone, from young, healthy patients to 50 years and older patients with mutiple risk factors of CAD. Specifically, the test is beneficial for:

  • Young, healthy patients invested in their personal cardiovascular risk profiles
  • Patients with a family history of CAD or other cardiovascular diseases who are interested in learning about how their genetics influences their risk
  • Patients with existing risk factors for CAD who will learn about the impact of genetic risk factors for CAD on their overall cardiovascular disease risk

Benefits of the Allelica CAD PRS Test

The Allelica CAD PRS test has several key benefits for patients and providers:

  • Providers can use the test to correctly reclassify patients at intermediate risk into high risk and so adjust therapeutic and preventive strategies accordingly;
  • Providers can use test results to help patients better understand all their personal risk factors which impact overall risk and how to mitigate this risk;
  • Providers can use the results, together with other clinical information, to guide primary and secondary intervention;
  • Patients can have a better understanding of their individual risk profile and learn which steps they can take to lower their overall risk.
