    This study tested the hypothesis that human macrophages have the ability to modify oxidation products in LDL and oxidized LDL (oxLDL) via a cellular antioxidant defence system. While many studies have focused on macrophage LDL oxidation in atherosclerosis development, less attention has been...

    Abstract: Objective: This study was designed to address the effects of increased lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity on atherosclerosis in the setting of LDL receptor deficiency. Methods: We generated transgenic (Tg) Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic (WHHL) rabbits overexpressing human LPL and...

    Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) were radiolabeled in atherosclerosis studies. The aim was to investigate the biodistribution and uptake of [sup 99m]Tc-labeled LDL by atherosclerotic plaques in experimentally induced hyperlipidemia. Rabbits were fed a diet containing 2% cholesterol for 60 days to...
