Diurnal plasma lipids and lipoproteins were studied in twelve healthy young males on corn oil and palm oil diets, respectively. The major triglyceridy. Lecithin-cholesterol acyl transferase, lipoprotein lipase and hepatic triglyceride lipase were also measured. diurnal changes of triglycerides and cholesterol were confined to lipoproteins of d less than(More)
We investigated the use of statins in clinical practice in patients with acute myocardial infarction in Germany in 17,732 consecutively included patients of the registries MIR-1 and MITRA-1. A clinical follow-up has been performed in the MITRA-1 study after a mean period of 18 months. In total 30% of all patients with acute myocardial infarction received(More)
Patients with increased cardiovascular risk profile are frequently seen in general practice. Comprehensive management of modifiable risk factors, in particular dyslipidemia, is mandatory. Many studies in clinical practice have shown a gap between the recommendations in clinical guidelines and the actual situation. Current data on the management situation of(More)
Hypertriglyceridaemia occurring in patients with liver disease has been studied by measuring hepatic triglyceride lipase (H-TGL) and plasma lipoprotein lipase (LPL) by selective precipitation of H-TGL with specific antibodies. Lipid analysis, determination of lecithin-cholesterol-acyltransferase (LCAT) activity, and liver function tests were performed in(More)
A multifactorial model for demonstrating the pathogenesis of the diet-induced atheromatosis of the rabbit is described. We examined the effect of various diets (atherogenetic, rich in fibre, mixed, normal) and of extreme restriction of movement, with and without doses of acetylsalicylic acid. The aorta showed uniforms morphological findings; 1.(More)
