BACKGROUND Remnant lipoprotein (RLP), associated with atherosclerosis progression, is often elevated in diabetes mellitus. The RLP level is estimated by immune-separation method and agarose-gel electrophoresis (AGE). METHODS The patients were grouped into three groups according to tertile of RLP-cholesterol (RLP-C) levels. The lipoprotein profiles of type II diabetic patients (T2DM) (n=194) were measured by an anion-exchange liquid chromatography (AEX-HPLC) and an AGE with lipid-staining or… CONTINUE READING
