Lp(a) measurement bias 

Over and underestimation of Lp(a) due to its different molecular weight isoforms has led to bias in many studies leading to underestimation of its strength as a cardiovascular risk factor.

Dr Michael France is a Chemical Pathologist with a specialist interest in Lipidology and will present at the HEART UK virtual conference on 7 July.

He has worked with HEART UK in producing consensus guidelines for management of homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia and Lipoprotein (a) testing. He has published widely in the field of Lipidology and Clinical Biochemistry and has a particular interest in the diagnostic utility of laboratory tests.
