Discordance analysis and the Gordian Knot of LDL and non-HDL cholesterol versus apoB.
Nijmegen, Netherlands. In Curr Opin Lipidol, 21 Nov 2014
However, although highly correlated, apolipoprotein B particles may contain a normal mass of cholesterol or may be cholesterol-depleted or cholesterol-enriched. Discordance analysis compares the predictive power of LDL-C and non-HDL-C to apolipoprotein B and LDL particle numbers in patients in whom they differ, that is, in whom they are discordant.
Clinical usefulness of lipid ratios, visceral adiposity indicators, and the triglycerides and glucose index as risk markers of insulin resistance.
In Cardiovasc Diabetol, 20 Nov 2014
UNLABELLED: BackgroundTo directly compare traditional lipid ratios (total cholesterol [TC]/high density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL-C], non-HDL-C/HDL-C, low density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL-C]/HDL-C, and triglycerides [TG]/HDL-C), apolipoprotein B (apoB)/apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) ratio, visceral adiposity index (VAI), lipid accumulation product (LAP), and the product of TG and fasting glucose (TyG) for strength and independence as risk factors for insulin resistance (IR).MethodsWe conducted a cross-sectional analysis of 7629 Chinese adults using data from the China Health and Nutrition Survey 2009.ResultsFor all lipid ratios (traditional lipid ratios and apoB/apoA-I), among both sexes, TG/HDL-C explained the most additional percentage of variation in HOMA-IR (2.9% in men, and 2.3% in women); for all variables of interest, the variability in HOMA-IR explained by VAI and TG/HDL-C were comparable; TyG had the most significant association with HOMA-IR, which explained 9.1% for men and 7.8% for women of the variability in HOMA-IR.
Very low levels of atherogenic lipoproteins and the risk for cardiovascular events: a meta-analysis of statin trials.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In J Am Coll Cardiol, 05 Sep 2014
OBJECTIVES: The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate: 1) the interindividual variability of reductions in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C), or apolipoprotein B (apoB) levels achieved with statin therapy; 2) the proportion of patients not reaching guideline-recommended lipid levels on high-dose statin therapy; and 3) the association between very low levels of atherogenic lipoproteins achieved with statin therapy and cardiovascular disease risk.

We review the pathways and genetic regulation of chylomicron assembly, the role of dominant restriction points such as microsomal triglyceride transfer protein and apolipoprotein B, and the role of CD36, l-FABP, and other proteins in formation of the prechylomicron complex.
