Elevated plasma Lp(a) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Unique to Lp(a) is the apoprotein, apo(a) which can vary from 250 to 800 kDa in molecular weight. Small isoforms are also associated with the risk of cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this study was to examine the association of Lp(a) concentration, apo(a) size, and Lp(a… CONTINUE READING
