Entry of Lp(a) into the CV arena
Lp(a) meeting Small isoforms of Lp(a) are associated with high Lp(a) concentrations and increased CVD risk. The team of Kronenberg discovered a mutation in the Kringle-IV type 2 region of Lp(a), which has a modifying effect on Lp(a) levels and CVD risk.
This lecture by Florian Kronenberg was part of the EAS-endorsed satellite meeting "The imminent danger of Lp(a): Time to face the challenge" held prior to the 87th EAS congress in Maastricht
