OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to study the diurnal variation of the cardiovascular risk markers apolipoprotein A1 and B and apo B/apo A1 ratio. DESIGN AND METHODS: We have studied the diurnal variation of apolipoprotein A1, apolipoprotein B and apo B/apo A1 ratio during night sleep and the day sleep conditions in seven healthy volunteers (age 22-32 yr). Samples were collected every hour to evaluate the effect of different sampling times on the test results. RESULTS: The lowest diurnal coefficient of variation (CV) was observed for the apo B/apo A1 ratio, which usually was below 2% but also apolipoprotein A1, apolipoprotein B showed low CV. There were no significant differences between nightsleep and daysleep for any of the studied markers. CONCLUSION: Even if there was a diurnal variation for these markers, the variation was very low. Thus, sampling does not have to be restricted to certain times of the day.
