The Prognosis for Quantitative Lipoprotein Electrophoresis

Surely any system for classifying lipid and lipoprotein disorders will have limitations, and this is certainly true for the Fredrickson, Levy and Lees “typing” system (1). Although during the past decade this “typing” system has allowed classification of most lipoprotein disorders into six types, there has been some dissatisfaction and disenchantment in its usage. Sometime ago, two editorials (2, 3) have advocated discontinuance of “routine electrophoresis” in clinical testing. Unfortunately, this would potentially have the effect of removing a cornerstone of the typing system, namely, the direct estimation or quantification of the major lipoprotein classes.
