"CardioMPO measures the level of myeloperoxidase (MPO), a disease-fighting enzyme, in the bloodstream. Researchers at The Cleveland Clinic have found that among patients complaining of chest pain or discomfort, an elevated MPO level in blood can signal a person's near-term risk for having a heart attack, needing bypass surgery or angioplasty, and even their risk for cardiac death, within months."
