  Purpose

This study will evaluate whether fasting/postprandial serum ApoB-48 levels are increased in diabetic participants compared to nondiabetic participants with the same range of serum LDL-C levels, and whether ApoB-48 levels can be used, along with LDL-C levels, to identify potential cardiovascular disease risk.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Postprandial Incremental Area Under the Curve From 0-6 Hours (iAUC)[0-6] of Apolipoprotein B-48 (ApoB-48) [ Time Frame: up to 6 hours after Test Meal ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ApoB-48 levels were measured at 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 hours after the administration of the test meal.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Postprandial Mean ApoB-48 Peak Levels [ Time Frame: up to 6 hours after Test Meal ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ApoB-48 levels measured at 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 hours after the administration of test meal. Peak was the highest ApoB-48 level recorded during this timeframe.

  • Fasting ApoB-48 Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline (Hour 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ApoB-48 levels measured after at least a 12-hour fast and prior to administration of test meal (Hour 0).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Diabetic participants
Diabetic participants with normal to moderately high LDL-C
Other: Test Meal
During Visit 2, a test meal will be supplied by the Sponsor of approximately 944 kcal (57% fat, 31% carbohydrate, and 12% protein), and postprandial blood draws will be done at 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 hours after the meal.
Experimental: Nondiabetic participants
Non-diabetic participants with normal to moderately high LDL-C
Other: Test Meal
During Visit 2, a test meal will be supplied by the Sponsor of approximately 944 kcal (57% fat, 31% carbohydrate, and 12% protein), and postprandial blood draws will be done at 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 hours after the meal.
