Revolutionary PLAC

Blood Test to assess

cardiac risk

PLAC (Lp-PLA2), a revolutionary blood test

which can indicate a patient’s risk of developing

heart disease and/or experiencing a stroke, was

introduced for the first time in the UK at London

Bridge Hospital. This innovative test shows an

index of inflammatory changes in the blood

vessels, to indicate the likelihood of developing

cardiovascular disease. The end results clearly and

concisely identify whether the patient is at low,

medium or high risk.
