FG Cardio Completo - Synlab

FG Cardio Completo

Pharmacogenetics in Cardiology

Why undergoing this exam?

Cardiovascular diseases encompass a set of pathologies related to the heart and blood vessels, which can occur due to genetic as well as environmental factors. Among the related cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, notable ones include hyperlipidemia, arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, coagulation disorders, and arrhythmias. 

The pharmacological treatment of cardiovascular diseases is based on the use of various medications aimed at alleviating both the causes and symptoms of the disease. 

Even with recent advances in pharmacological treatment, not all patients with cardiovascular diseases respond adequately to medication. Human genome variation is one of the most important factors responsible for modulating the individual response to pharmacological treatment. 

What is this exam?

The FG Cardio Completo pharmacogenetic panel evaluates the main metabolizing enzymes and targets involved in the effect and toxicity of different drugs used in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, providing the ability to select the most suitable drug and individually guide the dose for each patient. 

For whom is it indicated?

  • Patients with cardiovascular diseases who want to personalize treatment based on their genetic profile; 
  • Patients with cardiovascular diseases for whom pharmacological treatment does not yield expected results. 


Next-generation sequencing (NGS).
