Describes the effect of concurrent triglyceride feeding in rabbits. Reduction of the serum cholesterol levels and amount of experimental atherosclerosis in the rabbits; Enlargement of chylomicrons of thoracic duct lymph as triglyceride dietary load was increased; Incorporation of the absorbed lipid into lipoproteins of different sizes before entry into the blood stream.

    The authors examined the effects of splenectomy on serum lipids in patients with hematologic disease, in rabbits, and also in cholesterol-fed rabbits with experimental atherosclerosis. Serum cholesterol was determined in patients with hypersplenism before and after splenectomy. Meanwhile serum...

    The article discusses a new large chylomicron lipoprotein remnant from cholesterol-fed rabbits. For many years rabbits fed cholesterol have been used as models for the study of atherosclerosis. They rapidly become hypercholesterolaemic with a large peak of lipoproteins in the very low density...

    Classical risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis include hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, smoking, and diabetes. When the atheromatous plaque erodes or ruptures, local thrombosis develops which leads to partial or complete vessel occlusion with its attendant potentially...

    This study examined the association between aerobic fitness and serum cholesterol and the effects of controlling for gender, body composition, abdominal fat, and dietary saturated fat in 262 children. The 1-mile run was used to estimate fitness. Skinfolds were used in assessing body fat. Fit...

    This article presents information on atherosclerosis. Ferritin levels in middle-aged men average about 150 ng/ml and in women about 100 ng/ml in the diseases. However, `normal' values for ferritin are usually defined statistically by sampling an apparently healthy and relatively young...

    Algal polysaccharides such as carrageenan are good sources of dietary fibre. Previous studies have shown that carrageenan has hypoglycemic effects, but its cholesterol and lipid-lowering effects have yet to be demonstrated. In this study, carrageenan was incorporated into 4 food items, then fed...
