This panel contains the following tests:

  • Oxidized LDL (OxLDL) - LDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol) that has been modified by oxidation, triggering inflammation leading to the formation of plaque in the arteries.
  • Myeloperoxidase (MPO) - An enzyme released by white blood cells that measures your body’s response to damage in your artery walls.
  • F-2 Isoprostanes (F2-IsoPs) - Produced when free radicals react with neighboring molecules in a process called "oxidative stress," causing a cascade of damage in our cells initiating destructive pathways which lead to disease. F2-IsoPs may be elevated at the earliest stages of plaque development, and research has shown that people with high levels of F2-IsoPs are 30 times more likely to develop heart disease
