The precise mechanism whereby this is achieved relates to reversal of proteinurea that in turn lowers the production of Lp(a) in the liver.20 Researchers have demonstrated that Fosinopril is able to bring about similar effects also in the non-proteinuric population by increasing Apo(a) fragmentation followed by the excretion into the urine.20
