Table 3 Comparison of the parameters of HDL oxidation between HDL particles derived from the low-HDL-C and control subjects

From: Effect of HDL composition and particle size on the resistance of HDL to the oxidation

   Low-HDL-C Control P value

  1. Data are expressed as median (lower and upper quartile). Statistical significances were adjusted for age, sex, and smoking status between low HDL and control subjects.
