  • Dietary
  • To elucidate the link between the intake of animal fat and asthma, a murine model was developed to examine the effect of dietary cholesterol on pulmonary allergic inflammation. (springer.com)
  • In addition, dietary cholesterol also resulted in elevated production of IL-4 and IFN-γ by lymphocytes isolated from the lungs. (springer.com)
  • In contrast to the effect of dietary cholesterol, adding pravastatin to the drinking water significantly reduced eosinophil infiltration and the levels of IL-5, PGE 2 and MCP-1 in lavage fluid. (springer.com)
  • Although dietary cholesterol did not alter baseline IL-12 in the lungs, in mice challenged with ovalbumin the IL-12 levels were reduced in the cholesterol group and elevated significantly in the pravastatin group. (springer.com)
  • The results suggest that dietary cholesterol might enhance pulmonary allergic inflammation, possibly involving both nonspecific inflammatory processes and lymphocyte activities. (springer.com)
  • higher
  • Following sensitization and inhalation exposure to ovalbumin, the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of mice in the cholesterol group contained higher numbers of eosinophils and elevated levels of IL-5, PGE 2 , and MCP-1. (springer.com)
  • also on his level can affect regional affiliation.For example, the concentration of cholesterol in people of India and Pakistan slightly higher than other ethnic groups. (healthtipsing.com)
  • 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)
  • 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.
