Table 1 Demographic and biochemical parameters of the controls and patients

From: Strong interaction between T allele of endothelial nitric oxide synthase with B1 allele of cholesteryl ester transfer protein TaqIB highly elevates the risk of coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus

  1. Plasma fasting blood sugar (FBS), LDL-C, HDL-C, TC, and TG levels, as well as age and BMI were compared between patients and controls using two-tailed Student’s t test. The sex was compared between two groups by the χ2-test. NS, not significant; *p > 0.05.
