  1. TG triglyceride, TC total cholesterol, HDL-C high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, LDL-C low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol
  2. Data are median (interquatile range). P-values obtained by Kruskall-Wallis test
  3. Bold values indicate a statistically significant difference among APOE genotypes after adjustment for multiple testing (P-values < 0.0125)
