What is the KIF6 Genotype Test?Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) risk assessment based on traditional risk factors, while important, still fails to predict a large number of events. Because genetics influences predisposition to CHD, analyzing polymorphisms associated with risk may help improve risk assessment.
Recent research indicates that KIF6 can predict risk of CHD events and risk reduction during atorvastatin and pravastatin therapy*.
Who We Are
We understand that every patient is unique and customized therapy is often necessary. To address this need, we offer sophisticated risk insights from Berkeley HeartLab test results to help clinicians reduce risk and prevent the progression of cardiovascular disease.
