The variety of symptoms observed in patients with neurocysticercosis (NCC) is associated with the generation of reactive species by inflammatory cells. Reactive species can damage the cell membrane, inducing lipid peroxidation (LP) and giving rise to genotoxic free radicals. In this study we investigated the presence of LP products in cerebrospinal fluid(More)
Human HDLs have highly heterogeneous composition. Plasma concentrations of HDL with apoC-III and of apoE in HDL predict higher incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD). The concentrations of HDL-apoA-I containing apoE, apoC-III, or both and their distribution across HDL sizes are unknown. We studied 20 normal weight and 20 obese subjects matched by age,(More)
Hypertriglyceridemia is a prevalent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and increasingly important in the setting of current obesity and insulin resistance epidemics. High triglyceride (TG) levels are markers for several types of atherogenic lipoproteins. Patients who have hypertriglyceridemia may be at significant risk for CVD even if low-density(More)
