Twenty-five moderately exposed lead workers (mean blood-lead level 1.9 mumol/l) had lower plasma levels of follicle stimulating hormone than 25 individually matched controls without occupational lead exposure (blood-lead level 0.2 mumol/l). In addition, the ten most heavily exposed individuals had higher levels of thyroid stimulating hormone, and the 14(More)
Plasma lipoprotein concentrations were followed in 21 men with acute myocardial infarction. HDL and LDL cholesterol concentrations showed similar time-courses with average maximal decreases of about 20%, 10-14 days after onset of symptoms. The decrease in HDL levels (measured as HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein AI) was significantly correlated to the(More)
Norethisterone acetate, medroxyprogesterone acetate and levonorgestrel were administered to oophorectomised women to evaluate the effects they have on lipid metabolism. Blood samples were drawn after a 3 wk period without hormone therapy and after 3 wk on each progestogen. Serum and lipoprotein lipids were followed and an oral glucose tolerance test with(More)
Serum lipids, liver function tests and liver histology were studied during a withdrawal period in sixty-one male chronic alcoholics with a well-documented earlier clinical history. In these alcoholics with a mean daily ethanol consumption of 340 g during the débauche, the FFA were initially high and decreased during the first week, concomitantly with an(More)
Serum concentrations of apolipoproteins A-I, A-II, B, C-I, C-II, C-III and E were determined by electroimmunoassay in 56 patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) in the predialytic phase. The results were compared with those obtained in asymptomatic normolipidemic subjects, patients with type IV hyperlipoproteinemia, and patients with type II diabetes(More)
We examined three immunoassay techniques for measuring apolipoprotein B in serum and major lipoprotein density fractions from normolipidemic and hyperlipoproteinemic persons, comparing values by electroimmunoassay, radioimmunoassay, and radial immunodiffusion assay with those determined gravimetrically. Electroimmunoassay is faster and simpler than(More)
