  1. Significance of difference between groups with lipoprotein phenotypes A (LDL peak size < 25 nm), I (25 nm < LDL peak size < 26 nm) and B (LDL peak size > 26 nm) from [18] for size-specific indicator parameters. The results from the further developed and calibrated model versus the original model from are shown [13]. Only those processes that show a significant difference (p < 0.1) using the nonparametric Kruskal-Wallis test are included.
