In the majority of cases, this decrease is due to absence of the SMN1 gene. Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) is a modern quantitative molecular method. Applied in SMA cases, it improves diagnostics by(More)
Serum-high-density-lipoprotein (H.D.L.) concentrations were determined in 49 men who had had a myocardial infarction and in 102 healthy, middle-aged men, all from Northern Sweden. A quantitative immunological assay based on a monospecific antiserum to the main polypeptide (apoprotein A-I) of H.D.L. was used. The mean H.D.L. concentration was significantly(More)
