Cholesterol levels and long-term rates of community-acquired sepsis.
The researchers sought to determine the relationship between baseline cholesterol levels and long-term rates of sepsis. They found that low low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) was associated with higher long-terms rates of community-acquired sepsis. High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) level was not associated with long-term sepsis rates.
