The six biomarker tests include:
- Myeloperoxidase (MPO) – Vascular specific marker of arterial health
- Lipoprotein-Associated Phospholipase A2 (LP-PLA2) Vascular specific marker of lipid balance and arterial health
- High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) General marker of cardiovascular health
- Urinary Microalbumin/Creatinine Ratio Marker of endothelial health
- Oxidized LDL (OxLDL) Marker of lipoprotein health
- F2-Isoprostanes/Creatinine Ratio (F2-IsoPs) General marker of oxidative stress
