Four hypertriglyceridemic patients, who had received an equilibrated high calorie diet and no lipid lowering drug for 1 month, were injected intravenously with 125I-apo C-II and 131I-apo C-III labeled homologous lipoproteins. Plasma and urine radioactivity, lipid and apolipoprotein levels were followed at regular intervals for 15 days. At the end of this(More)
This study describes the alterations in the plasma lipoproteins from nine young Tunisian children with active visceral Leishmaniasis. The plasma lipid profile from affected patients was characterized by a marked hypertriglyceridaemia associated with reduced levels of total and high density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol and a significant increase in the(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of antimony treatment on the altered lipoprotein system of four young Tunisians with visceral Leishmaniasis and to further investigate possible relationships between acute phase proteins (C-reactive protein and apolipoprotein SAA)-known to be increased in this disease-and lipid or apolipoprotein (apo)(More)
Intravenous injection of recombinant interleukin-2 (r-Met-hu-IL-2(Ala-125] and LAK cells induced dramatic changes of lipoproteins in 12 patients with advanced cancer. After r-IL-2 injection (1) total cholesterol was reduced by 47% as a mean, LDL-cholesterol by 62%, HDL-cholesterol by 77%; (2) the triglyceride/cholesterol ratio was greatly increased (352%);(More)
The kinetics of apolipoprotein A-IV associated with high density lipoproteins (HDL) of plasma from fasting human subjects was followed for 15 days in five healthy normolipidemic volunteers. Purified apoA-IV and apoA-I were radioiodinated, respectively, with 125I and 131I, incubated in vitro with normal HDL, isolated at density 1.250 g/ml, and finally(More)
Six monoclonal antibodies raised against pure apo A-I or high density lipoprotein were characterized for epitope specificity by enzyme and radioimmunoassays, immunodiffusion and affinity chromatography. The six antibodies were classified into three groups according to the region of apo A-I they reacted with. The antibody VI10H, from group II, appeared to(More)
PURPOSE This review article summarizes original scientific research published to date on interoception in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Sensory processing has been shown to be atypical in ASD, yet physiological processing and subjective experience of internal sensation processing, namely interoception, has not been reported sufficiently(More)
Purified antibodies against human apolipoprotein S were used to measure apo S levels in human plasma by a sandwich ELISA technique. The method developed was highly sensitive and specific. A reliable calibration of a plasma standard was obtained by reassociating the purified protein with plasma HDL. A significant correlation (r = 0.69) was found between(More)
