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)
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)
Human plasma lipoprotein lipase was purified in a highly active form. Addition of the non-ionic detergent Triton X-100 led to stabilization of enzyme activity during the purification procedure. Antithrombin III, the major contaminant after affinity chromatography with heparin-Sepharose 4B, could be removed by gel filtration on Bio-Gel A-5m. The application(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)
Diurnal plasma lipids and lipoproteins were studied in twelve healthy young males on corn oil and palm oil diets, respectively. The major triglyceridy. Lecithin-cholesterol acyl transferase, lipoprotein lipase and hepatic triglyceride lipase were also measured. diurnal changes of triglycerides and cholesterol were confined to lipoproteins of d less than(More)
BACKGROUND Decision makers in the field of health services are increasingly forced to identify and realise the grounds for spendings and savings. Therefore, preventive measures of cardiovascular diseases are becoming more and more scrutinized. The present analysis is answering the question: Is secondary preventive lipid-lowering therapy with a(More)
Tumor growth in a 72-year-old male patient with malignant haemangiopericytoma in the left hemithorax could be followed radiologically for 4 years before symptoms of recurrent hypoglycaemia appeared. The endogenous insulin level in serum was maximally and serum IGF-1 and IGF-2 markedly reduced. An intravenous arginine load test showed a normal stimulation(More)
Elevated numbers of peripheral T cells expressing the activation associated antigen T9 are found in patients with active Crohn's disease. Expression of T9 is found to be correlated to the activity of the disease. However the presence of activated peripheral T cells is not restricted to Crohn's disease, but could also be found in other maladies with a(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)
BACKGROUND Increasing health service expenditure, on the one hand, and the politically declared objective of stability of statutory contributions and restriction of public funds, on the other hand, have been central points in the political and social discussion for several years. PATIENTS AND METHODS Cost-effectiveness of Atorvastatin in primary(More)
