These two associations were in keeping with the lipid patterns seen in the current family under study.22 This contrasts with studies of common variants near LPL , which are associated with triglycerides and HDL cholesterol, and the ones near LIPG , which are associated with HDL cholesterol; neither the LPL variants nor the LIPG variants are connected with LDL cholesterol.22 These studies are in keeping with observations in genetically modified mice that effects of ANGPTL3 on triglycerides and HDL cholesterol are mediated by lipoprotein lipase and endothelial lipase, respectively, and that the mechanism by which ANGPTL3 modulates plasma LDL cholesterol levels is distinct. The apparent discrepancy between the settings of inheritance of reduced LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels and reduced HDL cholesterol levels also argues for distinct mechanisms of action on different lipoproteins.The median duration of follow-up to the last follow-up death or contact was 40.0 years among all 245 subjects and 39.5 years among the 150 subjects with incident cases of epilepsy. The joint ethics evaluate committee of the University of Turku Medical School and University Hospital of Turku authorized the study design. Data on autopsies performed for clinical or forensic reasons, or both, were available for this scholarly study. The autopsy rate was 70 percent for all deaths in the cohort and 80 percent for incident cases. Total autopsies of most organs had been performed, although in several subjects, a less complete forensic autopsy was performed. The outcomes of toxicologic screening had been obtained in all subjects.
