Genetic studies carried out mainly in European and European-derived populations have shown that common polymorphisms in genes coding for apolipoproteins are significant determinants of serum lipoprotein-lipid levels variation. However, except for a few sporadic studies, the distribution of apolipoprotein polymorphisms and their association with serum… CONTINUE READING
