Performance of Methods to Estimate Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol in Women with and without HIV infection.

Source :

Background Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is estimated from total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and triglycerides (TG) using predefined equations which assume fixed or varying relationships between these parameters and may under- or overestimate LDL-C. Data on the performance of these equations in persons with HIV (PWH) is limited.
