Complex adaptive systems and human health: the influence of common genotypes of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene polymorphism and age on the relational order within a field of lipid metabolism traits

Abstract

We analyzed the influence of age, apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype, and their interaction on the variation of each of all possible pairwise correlations among plasma levels of ApoE, ApoB, total cholesterol, triglyceride, and HDL cholesterol.
