Abstract

A special In-depth substudy was conducted on 388 children from a total biracial (black-white) population, who wrer stratified on levels of serum β-and pre-β-lipoprotein cholesterol to explore factors assoclated with lipoprotein levels in childhood. Blochemical parameters on venous blood samples were obtalned both on fasting subjects and after an abbrevlated glucose tolerance test, along with selected anthorpometric measures like height, weight and skinfolds. Blochemlcal and anthropometric relationships were mlnlmal for children with elevated β-lipoprotein cholesterol and low pre-β-lipoprotein cholesterol, On the other hand, children with higher levels of pre-β-llpoprotein cholesterol, with or without wlwvated β-lipoprotein cholesteral, showed assoclations with fatness and sllghtly higher of glucose and insulin, with other blochemical parameters considered within normal levels. these differences noted among free-llving children with different levels of serum lipoproteins provide clues to mechanisms involved in the early natural history of coronary artery disease.
