Brief description Heart disease is a major health burden. Despite best evidence-based treatments, residual risk remains high. Lp(a), a small protein in the blood, is a powerful causal risk factor for premature heart disease, but little is known about its physiology or metabolism. This study will provide vital knowledge into Lp(a) metabolism and the mechanisms by which two unique therapies lower Lp(a) levels. These insights may expand treatment choices for people at risk of heart disease.
