Lipids and lipoproteins and risk of different vascular events in the MRC/BHF Heart Protection Study.
BACKGROUND: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol are established risk factors for vascular disease, but lipoprotein particle concentrations may be stronger determinants of risk. METHODS AND RESULTS: Associations between vascular events and baseline concentrations of cholesterol fractions, apolipoproteins B and A(1), and lipoprotein particles assessed by nuclear magnetic resonance were considered in the Heart Protection Study randomized trial...Expand abstract
