From: Apolipoprotein E gene polymorphism and renal function are associated with apolipoprotein E concentration in patients with chronic kidney disease

Parameter Total APOE subgroup P value
E2 E3 E4
TC [mg/dl] 204 ± 48 201 ± 26 207 ± 54 198 ± 42 0.77*
Non-HDL-C [mg/dl] 154 ± 47 148 ± 26 156 ± 53 154 ± 43 0.65*

TG [mg/dl] 112 (64–182) 122 (64–241) 98 (63–164) 121 (69–277) 0.21**
  1. Values are presented as mean ± SD or median and range (10th and 90th percentiles). Differences among the subgroups were analysed using ANOVA* or Kruskall-Wallis test**
  2. TC - total cholesterol, LDL-C – low density lipoprotein-cholesterol, HDL-C – high density lipoprotein-cholesterol, TG - triglycerides, APOB - apolipoprotein B, APOAI - apolipoprotein AI, non-HDL-C - non-high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (very low-density-cholesterol + intermediate density lipoprotein-cholesterol + LDL-C)
  3. Subgroups: E2: ɛ2ɛ3 subjects; E3: ɛ3ɛ3 subjects; E4: ɛ3ɛ4 subjects
