Lipoprotein (a) is an independent risk factor for vascular disease. Lipoprotein (a) has many properties in common with low density lipoprotein (LDL) but contains a unique protein, apolipoprotein (a) which is structurally different. Increased plasma lipoprotein levels have been significantly correlated with cardiovascular disease. Elevated levels may interfere with plasminogen action and promote thrombosis.
