“Lipidome‐ and Genome‐Wide Study to Understand Sex Differences in Circulatory Lipids” by Rubina Tabassum et al. was published on October 4, 2022, in the Journal of the American Heart Association.The study includes lipidomics analysis using data from a total of 9311 individuals (7266 for initial and 2045 replication cohorts) and reported that significant differences were observed in 141 lipid species. Such a study provides a comprehensive view of sex difference in circulatory lipids, which shed light on sex-specific mechanism in the pathophysiology of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
Lipotype’s lipid analysis technology is characterized by being able to process such a large number of samples in a short time. The high reproducibility along with a workflow that is capable of processing thousands of samples per week make it ideal for cohort studies.
