FE calculates LDL-C and assumes that, among triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRL) (i.
Our patient was a 63-year-old man in good health who recently completed a routine checkup that revealed the following laboratory data from SmithKline Beecham Clinical Laboratories in Seattle, Wash: CH, 263 mg/dL; HDL-C, 85 mg/dL; LDL-C (calc.
When we compared concentrations obtained for direct LDL-C and sdLDL-C in fresh plasma (n = 20) vs concentrations obtained in plasma stored at -80 [degrees]C for 3 months, we obtained virtually identical results.
To investigate the LDL-C measurement discrepancy, we performed various tests with the approval of our hospital ethics board.
Previous clinical trials have demonstrated limited success in achieving dual CRP/LDL-C goals(3), particularly for high-risk patients in whom target levels are CRP <2 mg/L combined with LDL-C <100 mg/dL or LDL-C <70 mg/dL (depending on risk category).
Finally, we calculated the LDL-C concentration by subtraction of the 2 fractions.
TriCor reduces elevated LDL-C ("bad" cholesterol), total cholesterol, triglycerides and apolipoprotein B, and increases HDL-C ("good" cholesterol).
This review critically examines the new homogeneous assays within the historical context of the evolution of LDL-C methods.
Subjects will be eligible if they have a LDL-C of 130-210 mg/dL and a triglyceride (TG) of less than 300 mg/dL.
Currently used methods for LDL-C include calculations [based on total cholesterol (TC), HDL-cholesterol (HDLC), and TG concentrations], ultracentrifugation, and most recently, direct LDL-C assays.
