      Some data of previous literature have emphasized a negative correlation between plasma apo A1, HDL cholesterol and coronary heart disease. The present paper stresses a high negative correlation existing both in females and males between values of index body weight (IBW) and plasma levels of HDL cholesterol and apo A1. No correlation has been found between age and, respectively, HDL cholesterol, apo A1 and apo B.



      IBW (index body weight), BFS (blood fasting sugar), BUN (blood urea nitrogen), C (cholesterol), TG (triglyceride), HDL (high density lipoproteins (d > 1.063)), apo (apolipoprotein)
