29 July 2013 - Norwegian biomarine company Hofseth Biocare ASA (OSL:HBC) has demonstrated in a study that oxidised low-density lipoprotein, oxLDL-GP, is a key cardio vascular desease (CVD) marker for tracking family history of the disease, the company said today.

The trial, comprising 188 patients, showed that serum oxLDL-GP levels can be associated with a family history of cardiovascular disease without any other clinical symptoms.

Other markers, including cholesterol and LDL/HDL, cannot predict the potential of cardiovascular disease based on family history, the firm noted.

Hofseth Biocare produces an enzymatically-liberated salmon oil (OmeGo) containing the complete lipid soluble factors in the whole fish. These OmeGo capsules have demonstrated ability to notably decrease oxLDL-GP levels and the company will initiate additional studies to explore the relationship between eating whole salmon, taking OmeGo capsules supplements and cardiovascular health.
