With regard to heart disease, the most important lipoproteins are high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and very-low-density lipoprotein, which is composed of triglycerides.
This is accomplished with a protein called lipoprotein.
Researchers recently found that bad cholesterol has a twin called lipoprotein (a), which can also raise your risk of heart disease.
Lars Berglund, associate dean for research for the UC Davis Health System, is pursuing research on a blood factor known as lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) and its effects on vascular disease.
