Heart disease in the US (source, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

  • Incidence: Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US
  • Mortality: One person dies every 33 seconds from cardiovascular disease. About 695,000 people in the US died from heart disease in 2021 — one in every five deaths
  • Health care costs: Heart disease cost about $239.9 billion per year (2018 to 2019). This includes the cost of health care services, medicines and lost productivity due to death.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death wordwide1. Early, accurate CVD risk assessment is part of established clinical care for primary prevention and disease management.

  • Cardiovascular risk factors include hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, obesity, cigarette smoking and family history.
  • The most important biomarkers for CV risk determination are lipids, including total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL cholesterol.
  • Standard lipid profile testing doesn't capture all available information, according to many studies.
  • Instead, measuring lipoprotein particles (LDL-p) provides more accurate results, especially for people with comorbidities.

Technology. |The AXINON® System.

Easy. Fast. Efficient.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a proven and highly accurate test technology that assesses a variety of compounds at a molecular level.

Our AXINON® System, using FDA-cleared technology, is the core platform we use to develop diagnostic tests for illnesses stemming from metabolic dysfunction, including chronic heart, kidney and liver diseases.

This system incorporates diagnostic testing algorithms into nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for precise results.

To date, more than 3.5 million tests have been performed worldwide using Numares technology.
