Are oxidized phospholipids on Apo B (oxPL-ApoB) the same as oxidized LDL (oxLDL)?

No. Oxidized LDL (OxLDL) and Oxidized Phospholipids on ApoB (OxPL-ApoB) are two different measurements.

OxPL-ApoB is measuring oxidized phospholipids on ApoB-100 containing lipoproteins and are predominantly associated with Lp(a).

Oxidized LDL is LDL cholesterol that has been modified by oxidation. Circulating OxLDL has been found to be associated with all stages of atherosclerosis, from early atherogenesis to hypertension, coronary and peripheral arterial disease, acute coronary syndromes and ischemic cerebral infarction. OxLDL is also associated with pathologic conditions linked to CVD, including diabetes mellitus, obesity and metabolic syndrome.
