Table 1 Baseline anthropometric and biochemical data for carriers ( E4 +) and non-carriers ( E4 −) of an APOE4 allele following the 8-wk HSF-DHA diet

From: Postprandial enrichment of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins with omega-3 fatty acids: lack of an interaction with apolipoprotein E genotype?

  1. Values are presented as mean ± SEM. P values were obtained using one-way ANOVA in SPSS version 22.0 (IBM Corp., Armonk, NY). Bold characters are used to indicate significant effects (P < 0.05).
