OSORIO, José Henry; SUAREZ, Yirly Johanna  y  PEREZ, Jorge Enrique. COMPARISON OF TWO METHODS FOR DETERMINING HDL CHOLESTEROL LEVELS IN CANINES. Biosalud [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp.60-65. ISSN 1657-9550.

Objective: To compare the direct method and the precipitation method for the measurement of HDL cholesterol in canines. Materials and Methods: Blood samples of 156 fasting dogs were obtained from which 30 from different ages were randomly chosen without discrimination by sex or age. After serum extraction, levels of HDL cholesterol were determined by the direct method and and by the precipitation method. The results were statistically analyzed using one way ANOVA. Results: The values obtained by the direct method in mg/dl for media, minimal and maximal range, and standard deviation were 144,435; 33,532; 77,676; 197,594 respectively. Using the precipitation method, the values for media, minimal and maximal range, and standard deviation were: 133,337; 36,727; 81,457; and 242,724 respectively. The P value for the F test was greater or equal to 0.05 (0.627) without significant statistical difference between the two analyzed methods with a confidence level of 95% between the values obtained in both methods. Conclusion: Since there is not a significant difference, either of the analyzed methods for determining HDL cholesterol in this species can be used.
