Levels of plasma cholesterol, triglycerides, and apolipoproteins (apo) AI, AII, and E in 560 males and 744 females from six Solomon Island societies were compared with levels in age- and sex-matched participants in the Rochester Family Heart Study (RFHS). The overall average cholesterol, triglyceride, apo AI, and apo AII levels for all the Solomon Island societies were significantly lower than levels for the RFHS (P less than 0.001). The mean level of apo E for these societies was significantly… CONTINUE READING
