Low-density lipoprotein susceptibility to in vitro oxidation in healthy smokers and nonsmokers.


We analyzed the susceptibility of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) to oxidation in 17 healthy smokers (43.3 +/- 16.8 pack-years) and 19 healthy nonsmokers, matched for age (smokers: 52 +/- 7 years; nonsmokers: 53 +/- 7 years), gender, and relative body mass. Cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and apolipoprotein (apo) B were not… (More)
