ABSTRACT: Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] has recently been characterized as a genetically determined risk factor for atherosclerosis and thrombosis. Normally, Lp(a) serum levels are closely related to the apo(a) phenotype. We studied Lp(a) serum levels and apo(a) phenotypes in 136 young subjects, aged 0.8–24.7 y, including patients with glomerular disease and normal renal function (n = 28), patients with chronic renal failure (n = 20), patients treated by hemodialysis (n = 10), peritoneal dialysis (n… CONTINUE READING
