Lp Pla2 Plac Test Overview

Lp-PLA2 test measures the concentration of Lp-PLA2(lipoprotein - associated phospholipase A2 a vascular-specific inflammatory marker implicated in the formation of rupture-prone plaque. It is a biomarker providing information on risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) independent of traditional cardiovascular risk factors. It is produced in the plaque itself. It is vascular specific unlike other inflammatory markers that measure systemic inflammation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lp pla2 plac test is a simple biopsy that assesses your cardiac health. Cholesterol testing alone may fall short to detect a definitive diagnosis and cholesterol test can miss hidden risks for heart attack. Around 50% of heart attacks occur in patients with normal cholesterol; rather most cardiovascular (CV) events i.e., heart attack and strokes are caused due to rupture of plaque that is formed by cholesterol deposition within the blood vessels.

In heart diseases, it's known that an unhealthy lifestyle-such as intake of fatty foods, excess alcohol and smoking have a significant role to play in developing the risk of a stroke. This can shoot up cholesterol levels and increases blood pressure. Blood vessels become clogged with fatty deposits which will dislodge and make their route to the brain, depriving it of oxygen. Despite the fact, the doctors still opine that significant number of events occur in people with no obvious risk factors for the disease, hence measuring these levels is critical. 
Eventually, the unstable plaque can rupture, become potential lethal clots and debris loose in bloodstream—causing a stroke or a heart attack . PLAC test is second generation enzyme linked immunoassay test, helping doctors with prediction of future strokes and heart attack

Lp pla2 plac test measures Lp- PLA2 (PLAC)Cardiac risk marker in blood of patient

During lp pla2 plac test blood sample is taken from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. You may feel a  little sting when the needle goes in or out. This usually takes less than five minutes.

High Lp- PLA2 levels may indicate need for more aggressive lipid lowering therapy to reduce the risk of CVD events. Patient with high levels are prone to rupture of plaque and associated cardiovascular events Low levels may mean that Lp- PLA2 levels are not contributing to the heart disease.
