N2 - Aims: The joint effect of obesity and asthma on hyperlipidemia has never been explored. We aim to examine (1) the association of dyslipidemia and asthma, (2) the interaction effect of asthma and obesity on hyperlipidemia, and (3) whether a gender difference existed in the above relationships. Methods: Between 2009 and 2010, 10- to 15-year-old children were recruited from 7 schools and 2 hospitals in Northern Taiwan. The population consisted of 237 asthmatic children and 225 non-asthmatic controls, and was further divided into four groups: ...
It is widely accepted that hyperlipidemia may lead to atherosclerosis, and hyperlipidemia has been identified as an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke [14]. Extensive epidemiologic and experimental studies have supported the conception that hyperlipidemia may cause nervous system-related diseases [15, 16]. We evaluated the hyperlipidemia model with reference to the Deepa modeling method (normal rat chow supplemented with 4% cholesterol, 1% cholic acid and 0.5% thiouracil, also called the CCT diet) [9]. In rats that were fed the CCT diet for 1 week, the levels of serum TC, TG and LDL-C increased by 2.40, 1.29 and 1.75 times,(P , 0.05), respectively, and the levels of serum HDL-C decreased by 0.26 times (P , 0.05). Factorial analysis shows that the severity of hyperlipidemia was aggravated with the extension of the CCT diet.. Brain tissue is composed of neurons and glial cells, and this tissue is a significant integration center for body movements, sensations ...
Given its mechanism of action in reducing VLDL secretion, it was reasonable to speculate that lomitapide would be effective in reducing LDL-C levels in hoFH. Indeed, a study in Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits, which are homozygous for an LDL receptor mutation, have severe hypercholesterolemia, and thus are a natural animal model for hoFH, supported this concept. Treatment of Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits with lomitapide markedly reduced plasma levels of LDL-C.16 A subsequent study confirmed that this effect was due to reduced VLDL secretion.17 Additional studies in LDL receptor-deficient mice confirmed that MTP inhibition was effective in reducing LDL-C in the absence of the LDL receptor.21. On the basis of these preclinical data and earlier clinical experience, a phase 2 proof-of-concept study of lomitapide in 6 patients with hoFH was performed.22 A dose-escalation regimen was used for the first time in this study, with the concept that it would allow gastrointestinal ...
The evidence for a reduction in cardiovascular mortality from fish oil is based on epidemiologic observations. To test whether fish-oil supplementation influences the development of atherosclerosis, we treated Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits (WHHL), an inbred strain that spontaneously develops atherosclerosis, with 2.5 ml of MaxEPA fish-oil concentrate daily and compared them to a control group fed unsupplemented rabbit chow. Serial cholesterol and triglyceride levels were monitored as were plasma lipid hydroperoxides. The animals were given fish oil from the time of weaning until 1 year of age, when they were sacrificed and their aortas were compared for the extent of atherosclerosis. No significant differences in the cholesterol or triglyceride levels were noted between the two groups. Fatty acid hydroperoxide levels were also similar and were noted to increase from weaning (1.0 +/- 0.7 microM) to the time of sacrifice (1.8 +/- 1.5 microM, p less than 0.01). Fish oil had no influence ...
PHatea is a 100% natural Chinese dark tea which promotes normal levels in the following areas: blood sugar for type 2 diabetes, LDL and HDL cholesterol, blood pressure, wieght and body mass index, metabolism, Hyperlipidemia and energy.
Familial hyperlipidemias are classified according to the Fredrickson classification. Type V familial hyperlipidemia is also known as combined hyperlipidemia as it look like a combination of type I and type IV. In type V familial hyperlipidemia there is an increase in both chylomicrons and VLDL. Both of the lipoproteins are hydrolyzed by LPL. However, this is mainly caused by mutations in APOA5. APOA5 plays a role in stablizing the APOC2-LPL complex, which is needed to hydrolize VLDL and chylomicrons. Mutations in APOA5 would therefore lead to instability of this complex and less hydrolysis. Some cases have also shown a decrease in LPL itself, which was mostly linked to the VLDL increase ...
Hyperlipidaemia predisposes to premature coronary and cerebrovascular disease which can cause sudden incapacity. If such incapacity occurred in a diver underwater it would prove hazardous to both the diver and his companion.. Individuals with hyperlipidaemia will therefore only be permitted to dive if they have no symptoms or signs suggestive of vascular occlusive complications and are able satisfactorily, to complete a treadmill exercise test without evidence of myocardial ischaemia. Individuals with hyperlipidaemia may be subject to more frequent medical assessments including exercise testing depending on their degree of hyperlipidaemia, its cause and its assessed prognosis. Often repeat medical assessment annually will be appropriate.. ...
Background: In developed countries, most dyslipidemias are hyperlipidemias; that is, an elevation of lipids in the blood. This is often due to diet and lifestyle. Prolonged elevation of insulin levels can also lead to dyslipidemia. The aim of present research is to study the array of dyslipidaemia and varied clinical display of ischaemic heart disease, its risk factors in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. Methods: A total of 100 patients of age |30 years were conscripted over a period of one year. The study included patients diagnosed to have type 2 diabetes mellitus irrespective of symptoms suggestive of ischaemic heart disease. Results on measurements were presented on Mean ± SD and in number (%), respectively. Significance was assessed at 5% level of significance. Students t-test and Chisquare/ Fisher exact test used to find the significance of study parameters on categorical scale between two or more groups. Result: Incidence of IHD was found to be 42% with a male predominance. Evaluation of risk
Adherence to both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic regimens will result in the largest impact on hyperlipidemia, and patients should be individually assessed to determine the most appropriate ones for them.
Reducing hypertension and hyperlipidaemia in patients with diabetes have been shown to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular events.1,2 The study by New et al considers the effectiveness of specialist nurse led interventions in achieving targets recommended by NICE and the National Service Framework for diabetes.3,4. Study patients were all from Salford, an inner city area with high levels of social deprivation, a fact that the authors acknowledge could have affected attendance: 16% of patients with hyperlipidaemia and 41% of patients with hypertension did not attend the nurse led clinic to which they were randomised, but returned to usual care. If they returned for annual review appointments, their results were included in the analysis.. Although more patients in the nurse led clinics achieved target BPs and lipid concentrations, results for hypertension alone were not significant. This result could have been influenced both by the high non-attendance rate in the intervention group ...

Lots of counseled patients will certainly not make enduring changes, and also reactions to lifestyle modifications vary amongst individual people. It makes sense in order to help inspired patients discover which lifestyle modifications are more than likely to boost their lipid-related cardio danger, then gauge the effects that happen as they make changes. Reduced consumption of trans and also saturated fats, increased intake of poly- and also monounsaturated fats, moderate alcohol intake, supplements with plant sterols or ...
A mutation in the lipoprotein lipase (LPL) gene, resulting in the substitution of asparagine by serine at residue 291 (LPL-S291), was found to occur in young survivors of a myocardial infarction from Sweden, combined hyperlipidemic subjects from the United Kingdom, and type III hyperlipidemic subjects from Germany at allelic carrier frequencies no different from those found in companion healthy control subjects (3.63 vs. 3.37; 1.85 vs. 1.60; and 2.00 vs. 1.56%, respectively). In a group of 620 healthy middle-aged men from the United Kingdom with baseline and three subsequent annual lipid measurements, mean plasma triacylglycerol (TG), (but not plasma cholesterol) concentrations in carriers of the mutation were significantly elevated over non-carriers (1.95 vs. 1.61 mmol/l, P = 0.05, and 5.83 vs. 5.65 mmol/l, P = 0.29, respectively). When these healthy control subjects were divided according to tertiles of body mass index (BMI), as expected, non-carriers whose BMI was in the upper two tertiles ...

To study the in vivo role of apolipoprotein (apo) C1 in lipoprotein metabolism, we have generated transgenic mice expressing the human apo C1 gene. Apo C1 is a small 6.6 kDa protein that is primarily synthesized by the liver and is present on chylomicrons, very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and high density lipoproteins (HDL). In recent years, studies by our group have shown that apo C1 transgenic mice develop hyperlipidemia due to an accumulation of VLDL-sized lipoprotein particles. The underlying metabolic defect in apo C1 transgenic mice is an impaired uptake of VLDL particles by the liver. Although a role for apo C1 in human disease remains to be established, data presented in the current paper show that apo C1 transgenic mice are an instructive model of hyperlipidemia to (i) elucidate possible mechanisms underlying this disorder and (ii) test the activity and mode of action of hypolipidemic drugs. ...

Approximately 65% of patients with T2DM die as a result of cardiovascular disease with hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia being important risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Both T2DM and atherosclerosis are considered to be inflammatory processes Human T-lymphocytes (T-cells) and aortic endothelial cells (HAEC) have been shown to be components of plaque formation in atherosclerosis. T cells and HAEC are unique in that in their naive state they have no insulin receptors responsive to insulin but become activated in vitro hyperglycemia and in vivo hyperglycemic conditions such as diabetic ketoacidosis and non-ketotic hyperglycemic conditions. Our studies show that T-cells and HAEC in the presence of high concentrations of glucose /and or the saturated fatty acid (SFA) palmitic acid become activated and express insulin receptors, reactive oxygen species (ROS), cytokine elevation, and lipid peroxidation in a time and concentration-dependent manner. Whereas, the unsaturated fatty acid α-linoleic, was
The Lipid Clinic provides the full range of diagnostic and treatment services for children with cholesterol and triglyceride disorders. These conditions can lead to atherosclerosis - narrowing of the arteries - that increases a persons chance of having a heart attack or stroke. Very high levels of triglycerides can also cause pancreatitis.. The pediatric Lipid Clinic was established in 1971. The focus is on the diagnosis of genetic disorders of lipid metabolism and their management for primary prevention of heart disease, stroke, and lipid-related pancreatitis. We also see children with secondary (non-genetic) causes of lipid abnormalities. Lifestyle changes are stressed and drug treatment, if needed, is recommended.. The Lipid Clinic works with each patient to achieve normal levels of lipids through a combination of diet modification, exercise and carefully prescribed lipid lowering medications. Since our clinics inception, we have made major contributions to diagnostic methods and treatments ...

Due to the unhealthy lifestyle of modern society, hyperlipidemia has become a common disease in China. According to the latest epidemiological research, more than 300 million adults in the Chinese population aged ≥20 years have a total cholesterol (TC) level ≥5.18 mmol/L and approximately 200 million people have a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) level ≥3.37 mmol/L [1]. Hyperlipidemia is considered to be one of the major risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease (CHD) [2-4]. A recent meta-analysis demonstrated that a 1 mmol/L LDL-C decrease could result in a 21 % reduction in risk for a major vascular event [5]. Therefore, lipid-lowering therapy has significant value in preventing cardiovascular disease.. Statins are the most common drug used in lipid-lowering therapy. Of the Chinese population using lipid-lowering medications, 88.9 % of them used statins. However, only 61.5 % of the population reached the goal of decreased LDL-C [6]. There ...
At present, what is the disease with the highest mortality rate in our country? Hearing this problem, I think the first reaction of many people may be cancer. In fact, this is not the case. According to the latest report of Chinese Cardiovascular Diseases, the death rate of cardiovascular diseases accounts for more than 40% of the deaths of residents, far higher than cancer and other diseases. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have become the leading cause of death for Chinese people for many reasons. For example: overweight, high blood pressure, high blood fat, high blood sugar, and smoking are the five major risk factors for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Among the five major risk factors for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, hypertension and hyperlipidemia are the main risk factors for atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, and stroke. & nbsp. & nbsp. & nbsp.

If a participant has not been on a stable dose of lipid-lowering medication for greater than or equal to 90 days prior to screening, the site should wait to screen the participant. If the results of the screening laboratory tests require a change to the participants current lipid-lowering medication or initiation of lipid-lowering medication, it is acceptable to change the lipid-lowering medication for the participant and have the participant return greater than or equal to 90 days later to complete some of the screening procedures ...

In the last decade, advances in the understanding of lipoprotein and lipid metabolism have developed enormously. This has resulted in a detailed knowledge of the mechanisms underlying the primary and secondary dyslipidaemias. Furthermore, the role of lipoproteins in atherogenesis is increasingly understood at the cellular and molecular level. In this book, the scale of the problem of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is described together with the possibilities for prevention.

The buildup of fat in the blood makes a bad situation worse - it not only raises a persons risk for heart attack or stroke but also impairs the growth of new blood vessels. How excess fat in the blood - a condition known as hyperlipidemia - blocks vessel growth was unclear, but new work by researchers at Temple University School of Medicine shows that a molecule known as caspase-1 plays a central role and that preventing its activity could be the key to building new blood vessels and restoring blood supply to oxygen-starved tissues.. ...

In the current study, we fed WHHL rabbits with two kinds of diets: HFFD (rich in sugar and fat with reduced protein and fibers) and standard chow diet (protein- and fiber-rich). Although both groups consumed an equal amount of calorie of each diet, HFFD feeding led to prominent IR accompanied by elevated plasma lipids, hepatic steatosis and adipose accumulation, even though the body weight was unchanged. Increased plasma levels of lipids are basically caused by high uptake of free fatty acids into the liver where they can be synthesized into VLDLs, which are accumulated in the plasma. At the same time, VLDL accumulation was further enhanced due to delayed catabolism of VLDLs in the context of deficiency of LDL receptors in WHHL rabbits. It should be pointed out that high-fat diet feeding did not increase plasma lipids in wild-type rabbits which have normal LDL receptors [20]. This notion is further supported by our Triton experiments along with RT-PCR analysis showing that there was increased ...
Abstract. The present study investigated the hypolipidaemic effects of Grifola frondosa and its regulation mechanism involved in lipid metabolism in liver of rats fed a high-cholesterol diet. The body weights and serum lipid levels of control rats, of hyperlipidaemic rats, and of hyperlipidaemic rats treated with oral G. frondosa were determined. mRNA expression and concentration of key lipid metabolism enzymes were investigated. Serum cholesterol, triacylglycerol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels were markedly decreased in hyperlipidaemic rats treated with G. frondosa compared with untreated hyperlipidaemic rats. mRNA expression of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase (HMGCR), acyl-coenzyme A: cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT2), apolipoprotein B (ApoB), fatty acid synthase (FAS), and acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC1) were significantly down-regulated, while expression of cholesterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) was significantly up-regulated in the livers of treated rats compared ...
Introduction: Diabetes and hyperlipidemia are two major factors involved in cardiovascular disease. The medical treatment and reduction of the effects of these conditions are key modalities in the prevention of heart disease. The term diabetic dyslipidemia supports the hypothesis that insulin resistance is a potential cause of dyslipidemia. This research study is one of the few that attempts to quantify a direct relationship between insulin resistant states and dyslipidemias. Methods: Data was collected by a retrospective chart review of patients diagnosed with either glucose intolerance or diabetes and hyperlipidemia. Lipid levels and either glucose, in the glucose intolerant patients, or hemoglobin A1c values, in the diabetic patients, were recorded. The data used in our study compared changes over a 6 month period in either glucose or hemoglobin A1c with changes in total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides during that same time period. Results: A positive relationship was seen with both change
Individuals in need of lipid modification but are intolerant of statin drugs who are referred for a partial ileal bypass (PIB) operation, still the most efficacious means to treat hyperlipidemia. In the subgroup of these patients who also have type 2 diabetes, with a functioning pancreas, we hope to perform a pilot study on the effect of PIB on type 2 diabetes.. Study blood tests:. - Pre-PIB and at 6 month and 12 months postop fasting blood samples for glucose, hemoglobin A1c, insulin, C-peptide, GLP-1, ghrelin, and glucagon; then after oral glucose meal testing for determination of glucose, GLP-1, and ghrelin at 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes. ...
ABSTRACT. Background: The present study was to explore the underlying mechanism of the nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) and the level of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) in hyperlipidemia rats. Methods: Rats were given with high fat diet and vitamin D3 by intragastric administration. After four weeks, the level of the plasma cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC), MCP-1 and NF-κB were detected by immunohistochemical method and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Results: The levels of the plasma cholesterol and LDLC were higher than that of the control group. A significant in-crease for the expressions of MCP-1 and NF-κB was observed. Conclusion: This indicated that the activation of NF-κB could play a crucial role in glomerulus of hyperlipidemia rats.. 1. Introduction. Hyperlipidemia is characterized by elevated serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, low HDL and increased apolipoprotein B and/or free fatty acids [1-3]. Hyperlipidemia is one important risk ...

Hyperlipidemia is characterized by abnormal or elevated lipids and/or lipoproteins levels in the blood. Elevated lipids levels have been observed in autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis, leading to a significant increase in cardiovascular disease-related morbidity and mortality. There is growing evidence that certain Toll like receptors (TLR) are involved in inflammation processes that contribute to alteration of lipid levels. Our studies have shown that treatment with a dual antagonist of TLR7 and TLR9 (antagonist) lowers total cholesterol (TC), LDL-cholesterol (LDL-c), Triglycerides and Leptin in a dose dependent manner in C57BL/6 and ApoE−/− mice fed with high fat diet (HFD). Lowering of serum levels of TC was inversely correlated with levels of IL−10. Antagonist treatment was associated with inhibition of plaque formation and improvement of liver and kidney steatosis. Further studies have demonstrated lowering of TC with concomitant induction of IL-10 ...
Recent evidences suggest that human gut microbiota with major component as bacteria can induce immunity. It is also known that gut lining depletes with ageing and that there is increased risk of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders with ageing. It is therefore likely that both may be correlated as depletion of gut lining exposes the gut bacterial antigens to host immune mechanisms, which may induce immunity to certain bacterial proteins, but at the same time such immunity may also be auto-immunogenic to host. This autoimmunity may make a protein molecule nonfunctional and thereby may be involved in late onset metabolic, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders such as, Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hyperlipidemias and Cancer. In this in-silico study we found a large number of peptides identical between human and gut bacteria which were binding to HLA-II alleles, and hence, likely to be auto-immunogenic. Further we observed that such autoimmune candidates were enriched in bacterial species belonging to

After four weeks, the level of the plasma cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC), MCP-1 and NF-κB were detected by immunohistochemical method and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Results: The levels of the plasma cholesterol and LDLC were higher than that of the control group. A significant in-crease for the expressions of MCP-1 and NF-κB was observed. Conclusion: This indi-cated that the activation of NF-κB could play a crucial role in glomerulus of hyperlipidemia rats.

PMID: 31818196 Open Access Tyrrell DJ, Blin M, Song J, Wood S, Zhang M, Beard DA, Goldstein D (2019) Circ Res Abstract: Aging is one of the strongest risk factors for atherosclerosis. Yet whether aging increases the risk of atherosclerosis independently of chronic hyperlipidemia is not known. The objective was to determine if vascular aging prior to the induction of hyperlipidemia enhances atherogenesis. We analyzed the aortas of young and aged normolipidemic wild type (WT), disease free mice and found that aging led to elevated IL-6 levels and mitochondrial dysfunction, associated with increased mitophagy and the associated protein Parkin. In aortic tissue culture, we found evidence that with aging mitochondrial dysfunction and IL-6 exist in a positive feedback loop. We triggered acute hyperlipidemia in aged and young mice by inducing liver-specific degradation of the LDL receptor combined with a 10-week western diet and found that atherogenesis was enhanced in aged WT mice. Hyperlipidemia ...
