We studied several risk factors in relation to parental cardiovascular heart disease: total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, apolipoprotein (apo) A-I, apo B, and lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] were determined in 322 serum samples (43 from subjects with and 279 without parental cardiovascular heart disease). The distribution of Lp(a) concentrations in our young population was similar to that of other white populations, i.e… CONTINUE READING
