Seven hypertriglyceridemic patients with type-2 diabetes were treated with atorvastatin (40 mg/day) for 2 months. Kinetics of apolipoprotein B100 (apoB100)-containing lipoproteins were determined before and after atorvastatin treatment and compared with data obtained in five normolipidemic volunteers. ApoB100 metabolism was studied using stable isotopes and(More)
The effect of statins on Lp(a) levels is controversial; furthermore, the potential action of statins on apo(a) fragmentation is indeterminate. We therefore determined the circulating levels of Lp(a) and of apo(a) fragments in hypercholesterolemic patients before and after treatment (6 weeks) with Atorvastatin 10 mg/day (A10) or Simvastatin 20 mg/day (S20).(More)
Atorvastatin is a drug of choice in the treatment of coronary heart disease, because this hepatic 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme reductase inhibitor significantly decreases plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels. However, little is known about the underlying molecular targets of this drug. Lipoprotein lipase (LPL), an enzyme with multiple functions(More)
The fibrinolytic inhibitor plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) plays a role in the development of atherothrombosis and is produced by macrophages that infiltrate the atherosclerotic vessel wall. Because statins are effective in reducing atherosclerosis, we investigated if they modulate the synthesis of PAI-1 in human monocytes/macrophages. To(More)
