The study was conducted in Angelo King Medical Center, De La Salle Medical and Health Science Institute, Dasmarinas, Cavite. The researchers examine the correlation of LDL-C to NLR, PLR and MPV in 18 hyperlipidemic-induced New Zealand rabbits divided positive and negative control groups to identify the potential relationship of the 2 different set of laboratory parameters. Statistical data were computed using t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson r correlation and post-hoc Bonferroni multiple comparisons test. It showed that NLR is the parameter that is linked to LDL-C, showing a strong-positive correlation after successfully inducing a high fat diet in animal subjects. While, PLR and MPV present weak to moderate correlation to LDL values. The study concluded that obtaining the NLR value from a complete blood count laboratory result may help pre-determine the amount of LDL-C present in the body.
