After the publication of the new guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology and the European Atherosclerosis Society for the prevention and treatment of dyslipidemias (Eur Heart J 32:1769-1818, 2011; Eur Heart J 33:1635-1701, 2012), a group of authors has recently published on behalf of the American Heart Association and the American College of(More)
Postheparin plasma lipolytic activity consists of two hydrolytic activities, hepatic triglyceride lipase and lipoprotein lipase. These two enzymes were separated and partially purified by means of ammonium sulfate precipitation and affinity chromatography using Sepharose with covalently linked heparin and concanavalin A, respectively. Antibodies were(More)
To investigate the pathogenesis of hypertriglyceridemia in patients with renal disease we measured plasma lipoprotein composition as well as hepatic triglyceride lipase and lipoprotein lipase in post-heparin plasma. Three groups with renal disease were studied: conservatively treated chronic uremia; patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis; and(More)
Hypertriglyceridaemia occurring in patients with liver disease has been studied by measuring hepatic triglyceride lipase (H-TGL) and plasma lipoprotein lipase (LPL) by selective precipitation of H-TGL with specific antibodies. Lipid analysis, determination of lecithin-cholesterol-acyltransferase (LCAT) activity, and liver function tests were performed in(More)
In 18 patients with anorexia nervosa, plasma cholesterol and triglyceride concentral concentrations were repeatedly determined over a period of 14 mo. In 11 patients elevated cholesterol concentrations were found which were due to an increase of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, whereas high-density lipoprotein and very low density lipoprotein(More)
Peripheral lymphocyte cells from patients suffering from Crohn's disease were analyzed for the expression of the "activation" antigens T9 and HLA-DR on their cell surface. It was found that high numbers of "activated" lymphocytes, the majority of which have proven to be T cells, could be detected in patients with active Crohn's disease, whereas in healthy(More)
BACKGROUND Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a congenital disorder of lipid metabolism characterized by a marked elevation of the plasma concentration of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol beginning in childhood and by the early onset of coronary heart disease. It is among the commonest genetic disorders, with an estimated prevalence in Germany(More)
Plasma lipid concentration and post-heparin lipolytic activity in twenty-two epileptic children treated either with phenobarbitone or sodium valproate were evaluated. An increase of phospholipid was observed in whole blood as well as in the low-density nd high-density lipoproteins in patients undergoing phenobarbitone treatment. No change was found in(More)
