Enhanced Diagnostic Tools
Bio-Synthesis can analyze plasma or serum samples to specifically determine amounts of homocysteine present in blood or serum samples. Amino acid analysis is considered to be the most accurate method to monitor the levels of homocysteine in plasma and serum samples. It is now widely accepted that increased total plasma homocysteine is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Impaired enzyme function as a result of genetic mutation or vitamin B (B2, B6, B9, B12) deficiency can cause hyperhomocysteinemia. The results of many studies indicate that elevated homocysteine levels account for a large fraction of coronary heart disease and stroke in the general population. The monitoring of homocysteine levels is important for evaluating those patients at risk.
