Gender differences in the association between smoking and dyslipidemia: 2005 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
Summary of "Gender differences in the association between smoking and dyslipidemia: 2005 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey."
Smoking has been reported to be associated with abnormal lipid metabolism. However, it remains uncertain whether adverse metabolic effects of smoking on dyslipidemia differ with gender. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between smoking and dyslipidemia in men and women.

Inbred strains of animals that are genetically identical except at a single locus, or a few specified loci, so that their known genetic differences are expressed in the same genetic background. A congenic strain is produced by outbreeding a strain and then eliminating the background by many generations of backcrosses while maintaining the desired genetic differences by selection of progeny.
