Several studies have described a correlation between high Lp(a) plasma levels and coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral atherosclerosis. In healthy individuals Lp(a) plasma concentrations are almost exclusively controlled by the apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)] gene locus on chromosome 6q2.6-q2.7.
