Welcome to Lp(a) Handbook and Resources
Thank you for your interest in The Lipoprotein(a) Foundation! We are a patient-founded organization. Our priority is getting people with high Lp(a) diagnosed, treated and their families screened as early as possible, so they can get an accurate predication of their risk for cardiovascular disease and live healthier and longer lives. However, we need your help to do this! We work with healthcare providers who support our mission by providing their knowledge on Lp(a), providing patients with information about the resources the foundation offers, encouraging patients to sign up for our national REVEALp(a) Registry, and conducting Grand Rounds lectures with our Lp(a) Advocates. Below you can find information on our programs and what, together, we can do to help us save lives.

Coming soon, the Lipoprotein(a) Foundation will launch a nationwide REVEALp(a) Registry. This will be the only active Lipoprotein(a) registry in the United States. The goals of the registry are to:
- Gather the natural history of Lp(a) patients cost-effectively
- Generate interest in Lp(a) research
- Provide more patients the opportunity to participate in clinical studies
- Improve Lp(a) patient health outcomes
The REVEALp(a) Registry will be developed to enable both patients and clinicians to enter data. Phase I of the registry will be patient enrollment and Phase II will be clinic-based enrollment. The Lipoprotein(a) Foundation Registry, with both clinic-based and population-based patient enrollment will ensure collection of high-quality, representative data on Lp(a). The REVEALp(a) registry will help address the growing need for more comprehensive Lp(a) screening, identification, and treatment.
Please encourage your Lp(a) patients to sign up here. (Coming soon!)
The Lipoprotein(a) Foundation brings together Lp(a) healthcare providers and trained Lp(a) Advocates to present grand rounds lectures on Lp(a). Including both the physician and patient perspective is an effective way to educate the community on Lp(a). If you’re interested in giving a local grand rounds presentation please contact us at email@example.com. If available, we will match you up with a local Lp(a) Advocate.
