Table 3 Lipidemic parameters (mg/dL) in the sample of healthy subjects stratified for age. Mean values with standard deviation in parenthesis.

From: A study of the average effect of the 3'APOB-VNTR polymorphism on lipidemic parameters could explain why the short alleles (<35 repeats) are rare in centenarians
