• hypercholesterolemia
  • It is used in diseases featuring high LDL, such as the rare homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, when the heterozygous form does not respond to medical treatment, or when the treatment has led to dangerous side-effects (such as rhabdomyolysis). (wikipedia.org)
  • An example of the application of the nutrigenomic approach was a study that simultaneously identified a mechanism for the regulation of sterol uptake in the intestine and the basis for sitosterolemia (a genetic disorder characterized by hyperabsorption of dietary sterols leading to hypercholesterolemia with a high risk of developing atherosclerosis). (wikipedia.org)
  • coronary
  • The first aim of this study is to develop and optimize clinical imaging protocols and techniques for fast high-resolution coronary MRA and wall imaging for the assessment of coronary and other main arteries structural, distensibility, and endothelial functional parameters. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • Stroke
  • Mitral stenosis poses a high risk of forming emboli which may travel to the brain and cause stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • ACCELERATE studied evacetrapib in participants with high-risk vascular disease (previous myocardial infarction, stroke or peripheral vascular disease, or several cardiovascular risk factors). (wikipedia.org)
  • molecule
  • This suggests that it has more catalytic than structural functions, since there is less than one APOA5 molecule per one lipoprotein particle. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • It has been recognized for over one-half century that significant LMCA disease is associated with a poor prognosis, with 3-year mortality rates in the pre-revascularization era as high as 63% in high-risk subgroups (1) . (onlinejacc.org)

  • Posted October 3, 2014 By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter WEDNESDAY, Oct. 1, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Living close to a major highway may raise your risk for high blood pressure, a new study suggests. (livingnaturally.com)
  • It concluded that using dietary portfolio high in monounsaturated fatty acid is able to further reduce cardiovascular risk by increasing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other efforts include managing high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and infection risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • Evacetrapib evaluation for treatment of high-risk vascular disease was discontinued due to lack of efficacy, as had already happened in the past with two other CETP inhibitors (torcetrapib and dalcetrapib) due to increased deaths and little identifiable cardiovascular benefit (despite substantial increases in HDL). (wikipedia.org)
  • subsequently
  • Beta cells in the pancreas subsequently increase their production of insulin, further contributing to a high blood insulin level. (wikipedia.org)
  • plant sterols
  • Sitosterolemia is an extremely rare, autosomal recessive disease characterized by high plasma cholesterols and plant sterols because of increased absorption of dietary cholesterols and sterols from the intestine, and decreased excretion from biliary tract. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • fatty
  • It examined the effect of adding monounsaturated fatty acid to dietary portfolio of cholesterol-lowering foods in hyperlipidemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • 24 hyperlipidemic females followed diet low in saturated fat for a month, then they were randomly placed into a dietary portfolio low or high in monounsaturated fatty for another month. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentration
  • The mean and median concentrations between different world populations show distinct particularities, the main being the two- to threefold higher Lp(a) plasma concentration of populations of African descent compared to Asian, Oceanic, or European populations. (wikipedia.org)
