 es Comparación de lipoproteínas de baja densidad obtenidas por formula de Friedewald y nuevas fórmulas en una población heterogénea
Guevara-Cuéllar, César Augusto; Criollo-Díaz, Claudia Patricia & Pineda-Cañar, Carlos Andrés

Resumen

Introducción: Aunque los niveles de colesterol de lipoproteínas de baja densidad (LDL-C) deben ser determinados idealmente por betacuantificación o métodos enzimáticos, hay limitaciones en países en vía de desarrollo. El objetivo de este estudio es comparar LDL-C obtenido a través de tres fórmulas (LDL-Cnf) con LDL-C obtenido a través de la fórmula de Friedewald (LDL-Cf) usando LDL-C (LDL-Cr) enzimático considerado como referente más aceptado clínicamente.
Métodos: Se realizó un estudio de pruebas diagnósticas en un laboratorio de referencia en Cali, Colombia. Las tres fórmulas fueron (mg/dl): Hombres con triglicéridos menores de 400 mg/dl: LDL-C= Colesterol total (CT) - triglicéridos (TG)/6.5)- 45; hombres con triglicéridos iguales a o mayores de 400 mg/dl: LDL-C= (CT- (TG/7))- 50 y mujeres: LDL-C= (CT- (TG/6.5))- 70.
Resultados: Se obtuvieron 315 valores de los cuales 53% eran mujeres. El promedio de edad y LDL-Cr fueron 54 años (±15.8) y 112.1 mg/dl (±32.5), respectivamente. La mediana (rango intercuartil) de CT, lipoproteínas de alta densidad (HDL-C) y TG fueron de 204 mg/dl (171-229), 51 mg/dl (41-61) y 156 mg/dl (99-237), respectivamente. No hubo diferencia en los valores promedio de LDL-Cr y LDL-Cnf (113.48 vs. 112.67 mg/dl; p=0.45). Los coeficientes de correlación intraclase entre LDL-Cr y LDL-Cf y LDL-Cnf fueron altos (r=0.93 y 0.92, respectivamente). La correlación entre LDL-Cf y LDL-Cnf fue de 0.95. No hubo diferencias en las áreas bajo la curvas de características operativas del receptor (COR) con niveles de LDL-Cr de 160 mg/dl (0.94 vs. 093; p=0.27).
Conclusión: Existe una alta correlación entre LDL-Cf y LDL-Cnf. Estas formulas podrían ser una alternativa cuando existen limitaciones para determinar el LDL-C.

 en Comparison of low-density lipoprotein obtained from the Friedewald formula and new formulae in a heterogeneous population

Abstract

Introduction: Although the levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C) should ideally be determined by beta quantification or enzymatic methods, there are limitations in developing countries. The goal of this study is to compare LDL-C obtained through three formulae (LDL-Cnf) with LDL-C obtained through the Friedewald formula (LDL-Cf) using LDL-C through enzymatic methods as the most-accepted reference method in clinical practice (LDL-Cr).
Methods: A concordance study was carried out in a reference laboratory in Cali, Colombia. The three formulae were (mg/dl): Men with triglycerides under 400 mg/dl: LDL-C = Total Cholesterol (TC) - triglycerides (TG) /6.5) - 45; men with triglycerides equal to or greater than 400 mg/dl: LDL-C = (TC - (TG / 7)) -50 and women: LDL-C = (TC-(TG /6.5)) - 70.
Results: Three-hundred fifteen values were obtained of which 53% were for women. The mean age and LDL-Cr were 54 years (±15.8) and 112.1 mg/dl (±32.5), respectively. The median (interquartile range, mg/dl) of TC, high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C) and TG were 204 mg/dl (171-229), 51 mg/dl (41-61), and 156 mg/dl (99-237), respectively. There were no differences between mean values of LDL-Cr and LDL-Cnf (113.48 vs. 112.67 mg/dl; p=0.45). The intraclass correlation coefficient among LDL-Cr and LDL-Cf and LDL-Cnf were high (R=0.93 and 0.92, respectively). The correlation between LDL-Cf and LDL-Cnf was 0.95. There is no difference between the areas under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve with the level of LDL-Cr at 160 mg/dl for LDL-Cnf and LDL-Cf. (0.94 vs. 0.93; p=0.27).
Conclusion: There is high concordance between LDL-Cf and LDL-Cnf. These formulae could be an alternative when there are limitations to determine LDL-C because of the lack of enzymatic methods or through Friedewald formula due to the absence of HDL-C.
