Part of your work up will include blood tests. We can measure many things in your blood such as salts, blood cell counts and protein markers specific to the heart (one is called BNP). In addition, we can carry out genetic tests to look for mutations in specific genes that cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
