Overproduction of VLDL (very-low-density lipoprotein) particles is an important cause of FCHL (familial combined hyperlipidaemia). It has been shown recently that VLDL production is driven by the amount of hepatic fat. The present study was conducted to determine the prevalence of fatty liver in relation to the different fat compartments and lipid(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study addresses the presence of distinct metabolic phenotypes in familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) in relation to small dense low-density lipoprotein (sd LDL) and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) subclasses. METHODS AND RESULTS Hyperlipidemic FCHL relatives (n=72) were analyzed for LDL size by gradient gel electrophoresis.(More)
FCHL (familial combined hyperlipidaemia) is a highly prevalent genetic lipid disorder that accounts for a substantial number of premature cardiovascular events. To date, FCHL has been complicated by the different lipid phenotypes that are present within one family and one individual patient over time. In the present study, we hypothesized that a parabolic(More)
BACKGROUND Familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) is characterized by a varied expression of hypertriglyceridemia and hypercholesterolemia within a family, and a high risk of premature coronary artery disease. The present study evaluated a number of potential prothrombotic markers in familial combined hyperlipidemia, and studied their relationship to the(More)
