Effect of Nicotinic acid/Laropiprant in the lipoprotein(a) concentration with regard to baseline lipoprotein(a) concentration and LPA genotype.

Metab. Clin. Exp.. 2014 Mar;63(3):365-71, PMID: 24333007

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is a lipoprotein in which apolipoproteinB-100 is linked to apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)]. Significant variation in Lp(a) concentration is specific to LPA gene, which codes for apo(a). Nicotinic acid (NA) is used for treatment of dyslipidemias, and the lowering effect of NA on Lp(a) has been previously reported.
