Apolipoprotein A-IV (apoA-IV) is an important component of "good" HDL cholesterol.
Test results were traceable to WHO-IFCC reference materials SP1-01 and SP3-07 for apo A-I and apo B, respectively, and to manufacturer's working calibrators for the other apolipoproteins. These considerations allowed for, but did not ensure, long-term accuracy of multiplex apolipoprotein test results.
As the major protein component of plasma HDL, apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA-I) synthesized in the liver and small intestine has been reported to be associated with clinical survival in multiple human cancers, including gastric cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and breast cancer [14-17].
Apolipoprotein E (APOE), with regard to longevity, can be said to be the most extensively studied gene [1].
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) is one of the genes (19q13.2) that is implicated in causation of gastric cancer (De Feo et al.
The apolipoprotein (Apo) superfamily, as a group of potentially modifiable biomarkers in clinical practice, is of increasing significance in the diagnosis, evaluation, and prognosis of PD.

Compared with solely detecting cross-sectional blood lipid levels, dynamically observing the fluctuations of blood lipid and apolipoprotein levels can better indicate the progression of carotid AS.

Apolipoprotein B (apoB) represents the total number of apoB-containing lipoproteins [7] and is considered to be superior to LDL-C and non-HDL-C in predicting cardiovascular disease [8], whereas apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) has a known inverse association and low levels are associated with increased body mass index (BMI) [9].
We aimed to assess genetic variations in exon 29 of apolipoprotein B (ApoB) gene in FH patients from 10 affected families of Punjab origin.
