Table 5 Relationship of other plasma lipoproteins to Lp(a)-C concentrations (n = 121)

From: Lp(a)-cholesterol is associated with HDL-cholesterol in overweight and obese African American children and is not an independent risk factor for CVD

   Independent variables1
Models Other variables included in models TC HDL-C VLDL-C IDL-C LDL-C TAG
   Standardized regression coefficient with Lp(a) as dependent variable2
I None 0.219* 0.462*** -0.254** -0.155 0.097 -0.283**
II Covar 0.244** 0.541*** -0.276** -0.166 0.114 -0.307***
III Covar + BMIz 0.235** 0.446*** -0.196* -0.113 0.145 -0.187*
IV Covar + WC 0.227** 0.450*** -0.200* -0.108 0.142 -0.190*
  1. 1Regression analyses were performed separately for each independent lipoprotein variable. Coefficients are shown following adjustments for covariates (covar) including child sex, age, pubertal stage, group assignment and family socio-economic status
  2. 2Significance: * for p < 0.05, ** for p < 0.01, *** for p ≤ 0.001
  3. Abbreviations: Body mass index: BMI, Body mass index z-score: BMIz, Waist circumference: WC, Total cholesterol: TC, High density lipoprotein cholesterol: HDL-C, Very low density lipoprotein cholesterol: VLDL-C, Intermediate density lipoprotein cholesterol: IDL-C, Low density lipoprotein cholesterol: LDL-C, Triglycerides: TAG, Lp(a) cholesterol: Lp(a)-C
