Apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA-I) Test

Original price was: KSh3,150.Current price is: KSh2,950.

Test Description

Apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA-I) is a structural and functional protein that constitutes approximately 70% of the protein in high-density lipoproteins (HDL)[5]. It plays a vital role in reverse cholesterol transport, cellular cholesterol homeostasis, immunity, inflammation, apoptosis, and viral, bacterial infections[4]. This test measures the levels of ApoA-I in blood, which can help assess the function of the cardiovascular system and the risk of cardiovascular disease[5].

Indications/Applications for ApoA1 Test

– Assess the function of the cardiovascular system

– Evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease

– Monitor the effects of medications on cholesterol levels

– Detect genetic abnormalities related to ApoA-I, such as ApoA-I Milano, which is a naturally occurring mutant associated with reduced HDL cholesterol content and increased triglyceride levels[4].

Patient Preparation/Instructions

1. Fasting: It is recommended that the patient fast for at least 8 hours before the test.

2. Specimen Collection: Separate serum from cells as soon as possible or within 2 hours of collection and transfer to 1-mL storage/transport temperature.

Typical Reference Values

– Adult males: 75-160 mg/dL

– Adult females: 80-175 mg/dL

– Male newborns: 41-93 mg/dL

– Female newborns: 38-106 mg/dL

– Males (aged 6 months-4 years): 67-167 mg/dL

– Females (aged 6 months-4 years): 60-148 mg/dL

– Children aged 5-17 years: 83-151 mg/dL[5]

Turnaround Time

The turnaround time for this test is approximately 7 days
