  • Cholesterol - a substance that is necessary to every cell of the body.It is contained in the composition of cell membranes.Cholesterol in the blood serum is not in itself, but is a single complex with proteins that it is transferred.Such compounds are called lipoproteins. (healthtipsing.com)
  • LPVN below 1.03 mmol / L may indicate a serious risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis, regardless of the concentration of total cholesterol.These figures are indicative of early detection of risks, and are also used to assess the effect of treatment aimed at lowering the concentration of lipids in the blood.

  • In simple terms, the "bad" cholesterol (LDL) is a molecule that can oxidize and penetrate into the blood vessels forming on the inner side of the atherosclerotic plaque.They significantly impede the flow of blood and can even completely block the lumen of the blood vessel and form a blood clot.This can lead to the development of acute myocardial infarction.

  • In humans, excess cholesterol in the blood is captured by low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and removed by the liver via endocytosis of the LDL receptor. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • Recent evidence indicates that the members of the LDL receptor gene family are active in the cell signalling pathways between specialized cells in many, if not all, multicellular organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • Total cholesterol does not have a prognostic value in determining the possible risk of developing coronary heart disease and others, but he says the increased value of the need for a detailed study of lipoprotein metabolism. (healthtipsing.com)
  • LDL - "bad" cholesterol, and increased concentration can indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.LPVN contrast, acts as a protective factor against the occurrence of atherosclerosis. (healthtipsing.com)
