The relevance of serum apolipoprotein E (apoE) levels to two hypertriglyceridemic dyslipidemias has not been clarified. We explored, in a cross-sectional (and short-term prospective) evaluation, the independent relationship of serum apoE to the atherogenic dyslipidemia, hypertriglyceridemia with elevated apoB (HtgB) and to apoA-I dysfunctionality,(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated prospectively the predictive value of serum apolipoprotein (apo) A-II, the second major apolipoprotein of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), for cardiometabolic risk in Turkish adults showing abnormalities in other proteins that normally confer protection. METHODS Determinants of apoA-II and its associations with coronary heart(More)
