The evidence that plasma levels of apolipoprotein B and apolipoprotein AI are important determinants of the risk of premature coronary artery disease (CAD) are reviewed and a metabolic framework for these relations presented. ApoB and apoAI are compared to total cholesterol and to lipoprotein lipids as predictors of CAD. The emphasis is on apoB as this is the particular interest of this laboratory and because a structural basis has been elucidated that may relate the epidemiologic observations… CONTINUE READING
