ApoB:ApoA Ratio

What is the apoB:apoa ratio?

The apoB/apoA-I ratio is also highly valuable for detecting atherogenic risk. The apoB/apoA-I ratio is stronger than the total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol and LDL/HDL cholesterol ratios in predicting risk. The lower the apoB/apoA ratio, the lower the risk.
