In view of the presence of some 190 mutations in the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDL-R) gene and a lack of simple detection methods, we have developed an improved assay system for detecting familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) using mitogen-induced proliferating lymphocytes. Freshly isolated mononuclear cells were cultured for 3 days in RPMI 1640(More)
1. The effect of an energy-restricted (46 kJ day-1 kg-1), adequate protein diet (1.47 g day-1 kg-1) on the nitrogen metabolism of five obese rapidly growing adolescents (two males and three females) was assessed by means of nitrogen-balance measurements and determination of whole-body nitrogen turnover. 2. The energy-restricted diet had no significant(More)
