Apolipoprotein profile of a sample of Italian population. Correlations with coronary risk factors
Serum apolipoproteins (apo) A-I, A-II, B, C-II, C-III and E have been evaluated by R.I.D. in a population sample of nine italian cities, for a total of 490 males and 530 females, aged 20 to 60. The correlations among apolipoproteins and between apolipoproteins and some coronary risk factors (age, body mass index, blood pressure, glycemia, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, smoke) have been calculated. In males, apo B was significantly correlated with age, blood mean pressure, total cholesterol, apo A-II and apo C-III. Apo A-I was significantly correlated only with apo A-II. Apo C-III was correlated also with apo E. In females, apo B was inversely correlated with body mass index and positively correlated with age and apo A-II. Moreover, apo C-II was correlated with apo C-III and apo E.
