This article focuses on the metabolic influences in vascular disorders with particular reference to cholesterol determinations in comparison with uric acid levels. A survey of serum cholesterol levels was made in 437 patients with peripheral vascular diseases. A similar study of uric acid levels was carried out on a group of 351 patients. These series were not selected, but were taken in consecutive order from the files and among patients with vascular disorders. Although the intermediate metabolism may not be completely clear, it has been shown that cholesterol is both destroyed and excreted in the human. Whether a positive or negative balance is maintained is apparently dependent on many factors, some known and some still an enigma.

    Background: Serum amyloid A (SAA) and C-reactive protein (CRP) have been suggested to be involved in the process of coronary heart disease (CHD) and to be potential markers and/or predictors of CHD. Remnant-like lipoprotein particles (RLPs), which are regarded as atherogenic remnant lipoprotein,...

    Purpose: To evaluate cone and cone-driven retinal function in patients with Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome (SLOS), a condition characterized by low cholesterol. Rod and rod-driven function in patients with SLOS are known to be abnormal. Methods: Electroretinographic (ERG) responses to full-field...

    1. Sodium 2-phenylbutyrate, in the form of the pure salt and of compounded pills, was assayed for its hypocholesterolemic properties and for its effect on atherosclerosis in cholesterol-fed rabbits. 2. Serum cholesterol levels were significantly lowered in the animals on the pure salt (P < .01)...

    The addition of cholesterol to the daily diet of 100 rabbits revealed individual variations in the capacity of these animals to handle the ingested cholesterol. Although some showed a brisk hypercholesterolemic response to feeding 1 gm of cholesterol per day, others showed no response until 5 gm...

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of local Lactobacillus strains (NTU 101 and 102) on cholesterol-lowering effects in vivo. Thirty male hamsters were housed, divided into five groups, and fed on a cholesterol diet (5 g/kg diet) to induce hypercholesterolemia. Milk fermented...

    It is unclear whether glomerular hemodynamic changes always accompany alterations in dietary protein, and whether non hemodynamic factors associated with a high protein intake can influence glomerular injury. In the present study, uninephrectomized (UNx) male rats were fed either standard (20%)...

    The article focuses on a research study that was conducted to ananlyze whether walnut increases cholesterol efflux through inhibition of stearoyl CoA desaturase 1 in THP-1 macrophage-derived foam cells. The extract of walnut oil was applied to cultured THP-1 MDFC cells (0.5 mg/mL). THP-1 MDFC...
