  • These chemicals are of significance because elevations in lipids (hyperlipidemia), is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. (thebody.com)
  • With the emergence of cardiovascular disease as a major cause of death in the Western world in the middle of the 20th century, the lipid hypothesis received greater attention. (wikipedia.org)
  • inflammation
  • Since hyperlipidemia is detrimental to endothelium and is capable of eliciting systemic inflammation as reported by previous published articles[ 18 , 19 ], we therefore considered that in light of its aforementioned cardio-protective effects, metformin might be possible to further enhancing statin effects on ameliorating inflammation and improving endothelial function.
