AimsTo evaluate the association of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels in small and large LDL particles with risk of incident coronary heart disease (CHD). Methods and resultsWe performed a prospective case-control study nested in the EPIC-Norfolk cohort. Cases were apparently healthy men and women aged 4579 years who developed fatal or non-fatal CHD (n = 1035), and who were matched by age, gender, and enrollment time to 1920 controls who remained free of CHD. Electrophoretic characteristics of LDL particles were measured using 216% polyacrylamide gradient gel electrophoresis. Concentrations of LDL-C
