Data are means ± SD from 5 swine per group. Intima-media preparations from abdominal aortas from all four groups of swine at week 20 were incubated with [14C]-oleate, as previously described. Statistical analysis was performed on logarithmically transformed data (log10) by analysis of variance; pairwise comparisons between means were made with Student’s t test within horizontal rows, values with different symbols are statistically different (P < 0.05).
