Cardiovascular disease involves a complex interplay of cells and signalling molecules. MARA™ is an intelligent algorithm to analyze the complex multi-variant data (cytokines and cellular markers) to identify people who are at risk of having heart attack. MARA™ detects inflammatory factors that contribute to causing or enhance processes leading to the obstruction of blood flow and ultimately to cardiovascular event like a heart attack. Many people who develop cardiovascular event are not aware that they are in danger until a heart attack occurs. Discovering high levels of inflammation will provide early warning of the risk and it will allow prevention and intervention measures to take place. Knowing the risk can facilitate applying relevant intervention to prevent development of atherosclerotic plaques including change of life style, better diet or the use of pharmacologically active drugs to keep arteries clear, facilitate normal blood flow and prevent heart attack.
Tests that can contribute to identifying those who are most vulnerable to develop cardiovascular event will facilitate initiation of early interventions, improve the quality of life for many people and decrease societal costs of looking after aging population.
