Studies have been inconsistent regarding whether lipoprotein particle subfraction measures are useful indicators of cardiovascular risk. The present study evaluated the relation between lipoprotein particle concentrations and size, analyzed using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and measures of carotid atherosclerosis in a population with high cardiovascular risk but little hyperlipidemia. In this cross-sectional, population-based sample of Alaska Eskimos >or=35 years old (n = 656), a… CONTINUE READING
