OBJECTIVE It has been suggested that low serum alpha tocopherol concentrations and a low proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the serum cholesterol esters may be associated with a high risk of developing coronary heart disease. DESIGN AND SUBJECTS In this study the intraindividual reproducibility (biological 'tracking') of these variables was studied in 855 men at the ages of 50 and 70 years. RESULTS The lipid adjusted tocopherol concentration was positively correlated (r = 0.28, P… CONTINUE READING
