We tentatively defined 1 unit/L MDA-LDL as the absorbance obtained with the primary standard at a concentration of 1 mg/L.
TG, MDA-LDL, and apo B concentrations were significantly higher in subjects with DM or hypertriglyceridemia than in control subjects [P <0.
LDL particle size was inversely correlated with TG and MDA-LDL concentrations and positively correlated with the HDL-C concentration.
RELATIONSHIPS AMONG TG CONCENTRATION, LDL SIZE, AND MDA-LDL
Mean values of MDA-LDL in each subgroup were calculated.
3 shows mean MDA-LDL values in each subgroup and indicates that even subjects with a TG concentration within the reference interval possess small dense LDLs, with MDA-LDL concentrations inversely related to LDL size.
