Lack of association between lipoprotein (a) concentrations and coronary heart disease mortality in diabetes: the Wisconsin Epidemiologic Study of Diabetic Retinopathy.

Abstract

Recently, considerable data have suggested that lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] is a strong independent risk factor for coronary heart disease. Since Lp(a) is increased in both insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), this study examined the relationship of Lp(a) concentrations to coronary heart disease (CHD… (More)
