Table 2 Endpoint fasting and postprandial plasma lipid concentrations (n = 21)

From: Fish-oil esters of plant sterols differ from vegetable-oil sterol esters in triglycerides lowering, carotenoid bioavailability and impact on plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) concentrations in hypercholesterolemic subjects

  1. 1 Values are means ± SEs.
  2. 2 PS-SO: plant sterols esterified with sunflower oil fatty acids; PS-OO: plant sterols esterified with olive oil fatty acids; PS-FO: plant sterols esterified with fish oil fatty acids
  3. 3 P values obtained by repeated-measures ANOVA with baseline concentrations included in the model as covariates. Values of plasma triglyceride concentrations were normalized using a log transformation.
  4. a, bValues not sharing a common superscript letter are significantly different at P < 0.05.
