Genetic polymorphisms in apolipoprotein B and apo E (APO B and APO E) have been studied for association with plasma LDL cholesterol levels and of these, only APO E polymorphisms have shown consistent associations (97,128,129).

The researchers found that very high HDL levels and very large HDL particles increased the risk of coronary artery disease when levels of apoA-I and apolipoprotein B (apoB, a component of LDL "bad" cholesterol) remained steady.
Baseline evaluation included measuring standard lipid levels (total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein [HDL] cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol), as well as non-HDL cholesterol, apolipoprotein A-I, and apolipoprotein B. None of the participants had cardiovascular disease at the beginning of the study.
