Evidence-based guidelines for cardiovascular disease prevention in women: 2007 update.
The burden of CVD on women and the global economy will continue to increase as life expectancy continues to increase and economies become more industrialized. Expand
Serum amyloid A (SAA): influence on HDL-mediated cellular cholesterol efflux.
Normal high density lipoprotein (N-HDL) is remodeled during acute phase (AP) reactions by the association of serum amyloid A (SAA) and the depletion of apolipoprotein (apo) A-I and cellular cholesterol efflux was reduced by 30%. Expand
Estrogen induces lung metastasis through a host compartment-specific response.
The results suggest that the E( 2) status of the host compartment influences late steps in tumor cell metastasis that can provide important insights into the role of E(2) in the tumor versus host compartments. Expand
Oxidized LDL induces monocytic cell expression of interleukin-8, a chemokine with T-lymphocyte chemotactic activity.
Using a low-endotoxin in vitro system, it is observed that Ox-LDL but not native LDL induced the production, by both freshly adherent human peripheral blood monocytes and human monocytic THP-1 cells, of the alpha chemokine interleukin (IL)-8, a potent chemoattractant for T lymphocytes. Expand
Cardiolipin is a normal component of human plasma lipoproteins.
Results shows that CL is a normal plasma component and suggest that the epitopes of antiphospholipid antibodies could include CL or oxidized CL in lipoproteins or in complexes with plasma proteins (e. Expand
THP-1 cells form foam cells in response to coculture with lipoproteins but not platelets.
The ability of THP-1 cells to accumulate cholesteryl esters, the hallmark feature of foam cells, in response to culture with native low density lipoprotein (LDL), modified LDL, and platelets is examined. Expand
Atherosclerosis and sex hormones: current concepts.
The present review discusses the epidemiology of CVD in men and women, the clinical impact of sex hormones on CVD, and the current understanding of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis with a focus on gender differences inCVD, its clinical presentation and course, and pathobiology. Expand
Screening phosphatidylcholine biomarkers in mouse liver extracts from a hypercholesterolemia study using ESI-MS and chemometrics
Chemometrics (bioinformatics) analysis and partial least-squares (PLS) with variable selection shows that the spectra are well correlated with plasma total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. Expand
High-density lipoprotein enhancement of anticoagulant activities of plasma protein S and activated protein C.
It is speculated that HDL may help downregulate thrombin generation in vivo and that this anticoagulant action is one of HDL's beneficial activities. Expand

Oxidative damage suffered by HDL as a result of the transfer of reactive species from LDL may compromise HDL function in cholesterol transport. Expand
