OBJECTIVE Experimental studies have shown that the prebeta-1 subclass of high-density lipoprotein particles (prebeta-1 HDL) may play an important role in the reverse cholesterol transport pathway as the initial acceptors of cellular cholesterol. The aim of the present study was the direct comparison of prebeta-1 HDL values in individuals with various types of primary dyslipidemias. METHODS Four hundred and eighty-six unrelated individuals were included in the study. According to their lipid… CONTINUE READING
