Lipoprotein(a) Concentrations, Rosuvastatin Therapy, and Residual Vascular Risk: An Analysis From the JUPITER Trial (Justification for the Use of Statins in Prevention: An Intervention Trial Evaluating Rosuvastatin)

Study Questions:

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is a low-density lipoprotein–like particle largely independent of known risk factors and predictive of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Is Lp(a) a determinant of residual risk in the setting of low levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) after potent statin therapy?
