To assess relationships of serum phytosterols (plant sterols [P]) to serum cholesterol (C), P were measured by gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) in 595 hypercholesterolemics (top C quintile in screening of 3,472 self-referred subjects). A second specific aim was to determine whether high serum P would track over time and whether they would predict familial… CONTINUE READING
