PULS cardiac test

CHD remains the leading cause of death and disability despite recent improvements in disease management.

Current risk stratification tools that rely on traditional risk factors fail to accurately identify those who are at risk of a Heart Attack. In fact, over 50% of individuals presenting with a severe cardiac event have at most one risk factor or normal cholesterol levels.

Beyond Cholesterol testing. Beyond Plaque testing.

What are Unstable Cardiac Lesions and how do they form?

             Unstable Cardiac Lesions form within the artery wall over time, often without any signs or symptoms, through a process of continuous arterial injury and repair.

The Hidden Danger of Unstable Cardiac Lesions

Unstable Cardiac Lesions form over time, often without any signs or symptoms, through a process of continuous arterial injury and repair.

Healthy artery wall VS. Artery wall with Unstable Cardiac Lesion in danger of rupturing

  • Arterial Injury
  • Cell Proliferation
  • Stimulation of new blood Cells
  • Cell Adhesion & Platelet Aggregation
  • Cell Death

An unstable lesion begins to form when oxidised or damaged lipids bind and aggregate on the arterial surface, causing an injury.

The PULS™ Test Clinical Validation In Diagnosing Unstable Cardiac Lesion Rupture

The ability to detect the Unstable Lesions that are likely to rupture prior to the cardiac event is crucial in the area of clinical prevention.
The PULS Test analyses clinically validated, multiplexed serum protein assays to measure proteins related to inflammation, apoptosis, thrombosis, vascular remodelling, and other processes underlying Unstable Cardiac Lesion formation and CHD development.
