Study Description
Brief Summary:
To investigate whether the use of Corus CAD (Age/Sex/Gene Expression score - ASGES) blood assay changes the diagnostic testing pattern in patients referred to a cardiologist for the evaluation of chest pain or anginal equivalent symptoms.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Angina Pectoris Coronary Artery Disease Chest Pain Cardiovascular Diseases Coronary Heart Disease CAD CVD CHD Diagnostic Test: Corus CAD

Detailed Description:
A prospective cohort of 88 subjects receiving the Corus CAD (Age/Sex/Gene Expression score - ASGES) assay were compared to a retrospective cohort of 83 subjects that did not receive the assay.

Groups and Cohorts

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Prospective Cohort
Patient presenting with chest pain or anginal equivalent and receiving a resulted age, sex and gene expression score (ASGES) to assist in diagnosis.
Diagnostic Test: Corus CAD
Age/Sex/Gene Expression Score
Retrospective Cohort
Patients presenting with chest pain or anginal equivalent who did not receive an age, sex and gene expression score (ASGES) to assist in diagnosis. Note: this cohort was historical.


Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in management practice pattern between preliminary and after Corus™ CAD decision [ Time Frame: Up to 7 days ]

    Change in management pattern comparing the preliminary and after Corus™ CAD decision will be measured by the number of subjects with medical management downgrade or upgrade within the following predefined categories:

    1. No further cardiac testing or treatment
    2. Medical therapy for angina or non-cardiac chest pain
    3. Stress testing with or without imaging
    4. CT angiography
    5. Invasive cardiac catheterization

  2. Change in management practice pattern between after Corus™ CAD decision and historical cohort. [ Time Frame: up to 195 days ]

    Change in management pattern comparing the Corus™ CAD driven decision and the historical cohort ill be measured by the number of subjects with medical management downgrade or upgrade within the following predefined categories:

    1. No further cardiac testing or treatment
    2. Medical therapy for angina or non-cardiac chest pain
    3. Stress testing with or without imaging
    4. CT angiography
    5. Invasive cardiac catheterization
