  • increases
  • These drugs have generally failed in clinical trials, either causing a marked increase in deaths (torcetrapib), or having no meaningful clinical improvement despite HDL increases (dalcetrapib, evacetrapib). (wikipedia.org)
  • They wrote, We propose that the difference is due to the time lag between increases in consumption of animal fat and serum cholesterol concentrations and the resulting increase in mortality from heart disease-similar to the recognised time lag between smoking and lung cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Patients should aim for an HDL level above 60 milligrams per deciliter. (reference.com)
  • The company said it will encourage doctors to consider alternative treatments to control cholesterol, but advised patients not to discontinue Tredaptive without first speaking with their physicians. (foxbusiness.com)
  • 2 This review considers the potential mechanisms by which HDL-C may exert its antiatherogenic effects, discusses disorders of HDL and how to interpret them in the clinical setting, and presents current and potential treatment strategies for patients with low HDL-C. (ahajournals.org)
  • lipids
  • Cholesterol is one of three major classes of lipids which all animal cells use to construct their membranes and is thus manufactured by all animal cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • patient's
  • However, HDL-C should be considered as part of the patient's overall profile of established risk factors in determining treatment strategies. (ahajournals.org)
  • fatty
  • NAD is important in catabolism of fat, carbohydrate, protein, and alcohol, as well as cell signaling and DNA repair, and NADP mostly in anabolism reactions such as fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • researchers
  • Researchers discovered that they were unable to create new aneurysms in the mice that received the HDL injections, and these mice also showed a significant reduction in the size of their existing aneurysms. (womenshealthmag.com)
  • In contrast, those with HDL readings below 41 or above 60 faced a markedly increased risk for both health outcomes, demonstrating what the researchers called a "U-shaped" risk pattern. (medicinenet.com)

  • clinical
  • Although some clinical trials suggest a benefit of raising HDL-C to reduce risk, further studies are needed, and HDL-C is still not considered a primary target of therapy in the National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines. (ahajournals.org)
  • Most of apolipoprotein A-I (apo A-I), the predominant HDL protein, migrates in agarose gels with α-electrophoretic mobility and is designated α-LpA-I. This fraction accounts for almost all of the cholesterol quantified in the clinical laboratory as HDL-C. α-HDL can be further fractionated by density into HDL 2 and HDL 3 , by size, or by apolipoprotein composition.
