About This Book

Lipoprotein(a) presents the proceedings of the International Symposium, held in Chicago, Illinois, on December 2–3, 1988. It discusses the different aspects of the research on lipoprotein(a), commonly referred to as Lp(a). It covers a wide range of topics, including comparative biology, metabolism, structure, epidemiology, and treatment.
Comprised of 15 chapters, the book starts with an overview of the role of Lp(a) in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), followed by a discussion on recent findings and developments. It then considers the relationship between elevated plasma Lp(a) and the inherited risk factor for the development of coronary heart disease. The reader is also introduced to the various components of Lp(a), which include neutral lipids, polar lipids, apoprotein(a), and apoprotein B. Other chapters discuss the specific functions of apolipoproteins in plasma lipid metabolism, which determine the fate of the various lipoprotein particles in plasma.
This book will be of benefit to cardiologists and medical practitioners.
