Application of a modified precipitation method for the measurement of small dense LDL-cholesterol (sd-LDL-C) in a population in southern Brazil.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In the study reported herein, we used the precipitation method employing heparin-Mg(2+), with slight modifications to avoid lipemia interference, to measure small dense-low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (sd-LDL-C) in Brazilian subjects with a high risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. METHODS Lipemic samples were diluted with various… (More)
