Table 4 Lipid transfer in vitro from LDE to HDL and HDL particle size of the Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) and control groups

From: Lipoprotein metabolism in patients with type 1 diabetes under intensive insulin treatment

  T1DM group (n=15) Control group (n=16) P value
Lipid transfers (%)    
  Cholesteryl esters 2.7 ± 0,6 3.1 ± 0,8 0.09
  Phospholipids 19.3 ± 3.7 20.7 ± 3.9 0.33
  Tryglicerides 2.1 ± 0.8 2.3 ± 0.5 0.38
  Free cholesterol 5.9 ± 1.7 6.0 ± 0.9 0.78
HDL particle size (nm) 10.4 ± 1.6 9.8 ± 1.2 0.20
  1. Data are expressed as mean ± SD. The value indicated is the percentage of the radioactivity of each lipid component in the nanoemulsion that was transferred to the plasma HDL fraction after 1 hour incubation.
