  1. Divergent age-associated patterns of high density lipoprotein cholesterol and its percentage in Jewish and Moslem Arab Israeli children and adolescents : the Petach Tikva project.

    Article - En anglais

    We studied three groups of Israeli Jewish schoolchildren in and surrounding Petach Tikva, Israel, cross-sectionally, at ages 9-10, 13-14, and 16-18 years, and compared lipid and lipoprotein levels and age-associated lipoprotein patterns in the same age groups of boys and girls in neighboring Israeli Moslem Arab schools during 1986-1987.

    Moslem children displayed striking differences in the levels of lipids and age-associated patterns of lipoproteins compared with Jewish schoolchildren.

    The mean total cholesterol levels were lower in the Moslem children, in both sexes, in every age grouping.

    High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels were significantly higher at age 16-18 in the Moslem boys than in the Jewish boys.
