Incidence of coronary heart disease and lipoprotein cholesterol levels. The Framingham Study.

TLDR
It is concluded that even after these adjustments, nonfasting HDL-C and total cholesterol levels are related to development of CHD in both men and women aged 49 years and older.

High density lipoprotein cholesterol concentration as a predictor of coronary heart disease in West Indian men.

TLDR
A low serum concentration of high density lipoprotein cholesterol is a risk factor for coronary heart disease in non-whites as well as in whites.

High-density lipoprotein cholesterol and premature coronary heart disease in urban Japanese men.

TLDR
Coronary heart disease incidence is inversely related to HDL-C in urban Japanese middle-aged men, whose mean total cholesterol is relatively low.

HDL and clinical and biochemical correlates in Italian non-smoker women

TLDR
A surprisingly high prevalence of very low and high HDL plasma levels and the influence of environmental factors and lipid profile in an Italian non-smoker female population further confirms the importance of studies on the HDL distribution in different population groups.

The Tromsø Heart Study: serum selenium and risk of myocardial infarction a nested case-control study.

TLDR
In this population with intermediate selenium intake, low serum selenum is not associated with an excess risk of myocardial infarction and sudden death, and the major determinants of my Cardiac Infarction were raised levels of serum cholesterol and triglycerides and high systolic blood pressure.

Concentrations of high density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, and total cholesterol in ischaemic heart disease.

TLDR
Serum concentration of total cholesterol is the most important single blood lipid risk factor for ischaemic heart disease in men and high density lipoprotein cholesterol concentration is less important, and triglyceride concentrations do not have predictive importance once other risk factors have been taken into account.

The Tromsøo heart study. Methods and main results of the cross-sectional study.

TLDR
The results suggest that the relatively high mortality from CHD in Northern Norway is associated with high serum cholesterol concentrations as well as a relatively high prevalence of smoking.

Serum lipoproteins and coronary heart disease in a population study of Hawaii Japanese men.

TLDR
The inverse relation of alpha cholesterol of prevalence of coronary heart disease was independent of beta cholesterol, obesity, and other factors, and the need for further evaluation of the protective effect of the alpha lipoprotein fraction on the development of coronaryHeart disease is suggested.

Multivariate Analysis of Risk Factors for Coronary Heart Disease

TLDR
Those with sedentary jobs showed a slightly increased tendency to develop manifestations of the disease and the predictive power of the logistic function was tested in another randomly selected population sample of 5,146 men aged 51-55 years and found to be very accurate.

Early effects of fat ingestion on lipids and lipoproteins of serum in man.

The mechanisms of fat transport in the blood are still poorly understood. Recent studies have shown that all lipids in blood plasma exist as lipoprotein complexes, that a broad spectrum of such
