The influence of apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotypes on plasma lipid levels and interaction with other environmental factors was determined in two Slovakian population samples; 146 Romany and 351 Slovak individuals. The two samples differ significantly in the distribution of E3/3 genotypes (p_0.014) and E3/2 (p_0.035). Analysis of variance did not reveal any significant effect of the ApoE genotypes on any of the plasma lipid levels in the Romany individuals. In the Slovak sample the variation in plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels was significantly associated with the ApoE genotypes (p=0.012). We detected decreased LDL-C concentrations in males with E2 genotype when compared with E3 and E4 carriers (p=0.008). Further, the E2 genotype was found to be associated with high triglycerides levels (p=0.009). The ethnic samples differ significantly in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and in the case of males of diabetes. Both the Romany and the Slovak males can be considered as having a more atherogenic profile compared with the females
