NL-Sed (n = 4)FH-Sed (n = 4)FH-Ex (n = 7)
Total cholesterol, mg/dl86 ± 5.3316 ± 29*335 ± 24*
HDL, mg/dl46 ± 1.032 ± 5.0*30 ± 2.0*
LDL, mg/dl50 ± 4.6248 ± 28*271 ± 22*
Triglycerides, mg/dl16 ± 2.829 ± 3.0*27 ± 3.0*
  • Values are expressed as means ± SE. NL-Sed, sedentary normolipidemic pigs; FH-Sed, sedentary hypercholesterolemic pigs; FH-Ex, exercised hypercholesterolemic pigs; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein.

  • * P < 0.05 vs. NL-Sed.
