Gerhard Kostner, Emeritus Full Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Medical University of Graz, Austria looks back at the Lipoprotein(a) Satellite Meeting of the European Atherosclerosis Society Congress: From Bench to Bedside, Innsbruck 27-29 May, 2016.

Fifty years since first reported by Kåre Berg, Oslo, Norway, lipoprotein(a) is now accepted as a causal risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Despite this, this Satellite Meeting showed that gaps in knowledge about lipoprotein(a) remain. These include uncertainties in analysis, biosynthesis and catabolism, and most importantly, the key question: What makes lipoprotein(a) so atherogenic?
