Lipoprotein (a) (Lpa) - This consists of LDL particles bound to apolipoprotein a by a disulphide bridge. Lipoprotein (a) is seen to be a risk factor for the development of ischaemic cardiovascular disease. Levels of Lipoprotein (a) are often genetically determined. This test is often advised if the patient has a moderate to high risk of cardiovascular disease.

This confidential blood assay for Lipoprotein a is offered at more than thirty two Spire hospitals across England, Scotland and Wales.

Included in each pathology request for Lipoprotein a are a Doctors Referral, all Phlebotomy fees (your blood taken at a Private Hospital), all laboratory fees and includes our GP comments.
