Myeloperoxidase MPO Blood Test

MPO


Test Code: 123006
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Myeloperoxidase MPO Blood Test

This test measures the level of Myeloperoxidase (MPO) in the blood.  MPO is an enzyme produced by white blood cells.  Elevated MPO levels are a strong indicator that there is inflammation in a person's arterial walls due to plaque buildup.  This type of inflammation greatly increases the risk of cardiovascular events such as a heart attack.  Even in people with normal cholesterol, elevated MPO can mean their heart health is at risk.

MPO testing is typically ordered when a person experiences chest pain or other symptoms of heart disease.  People with a family history of heart disease may check MPO as part of testing to assess their own risk level.

Turnaround for this test is typically 2-5 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
