Abstract

Abstract Total apo E in plasma and the amount of apo E-HDL were measured in 40 normolipidemic male survivors of myocardial infarction and in 40 controls. LDL-C, Lp(a) and apo B were significantly higher and HDL-C and apo A-I were significantly lower in survivors than in controls. Total plasma apo E did not differ between patients and controls, but HDL-E and the ratio HDL-E/apo A-I were lower in survivors. The data support the view that atherosclerotic patients are often characterized by abnormalities in the concentration and distribution of lipoproteins as well as of apoproteins, even in the presence of normal total plasma lipids.
