Lipoprotein (a) metabolism estimated by nonsteady-state kinetics


Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] is a low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particle with an additional apolipoprotein named apo(a). The concentration of Lp(a) in plasma is determined to a large extent by the size of the apo(a) isoform. Because elevated Lp(a) concentrations in plasma are associated with risk for premature coronary heart disease it is important to determine… (More)
