Ingested dihydrocholesterol, a constant companion of cholesterol, is atherogenic in rabbits. The atherosrlerosis is different from that seen in cholesterol fed rabbits. The histologic sequence of events in these lesions over a 51-week period is described in some detail. The lesions occurred in the absence of a gross hyperlipemia or significant hypercholesterolemia. Chemical analyses of the blood suggest that the serum cholesterol is partially replaced by dihydrocholesterol during the course of the experiment.

    Background The cholesterol-lowering efficacy of plant sterol esters (PSteE) or stanol esters (PStaE) in regular- and low-fat spreads has been consistently demonstrated, while their effectiveness in a low-fat, aqueous food carrier such as milk and yoghurt is less well established. Aim of the...

    It has been suggested that high cholesterol levels might have adverse effects on hearing and interestingly statins may have beneficial effects on hearing loss. Herein, we share a dramatic improvement in acute hearing loss by statin administration in a young patient with familial...

    Background: Resveratrol (RSV), a naturally occurring polyphenolic stilbenoid, is known to possess potent anti-atherogenic properties; however, the effect of RSV on hypercholesterolemia is not fully understood. We hypothesized that RSV decreases blood cholesterol levels through the activation of...
