Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is the primary lipid parameter targeted to prevent myocardial infarction. Alternatively, non-high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol includes LDL cholesterol and other atherogenic particles but does not require a fasting sample. Non-HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol as predictors of first nonfatal myocardial infarction were compared in 303 patients and 297 controls matched for age, gender, and community within the Boston Area Health Study.
