  1. Statistical significance between control and hyperlipemic groups was tested using the unpaired Student's T-test in the case of normal distribution of compared data sets, and using Kolmogorov-Smirnov's test when at least in one of the data sets compared the normal distribution was excluded (marked with KS). The significant p values are denoted by thick underlined numbers. With asterisks statistically significant differences between controls and hypelipemic patients of different gender are denoted (*, **, *** = p < 0,05, 0,01 and 0,001, respectively).
