Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) in 38 low density lipoprotein (LDL) samples from 21 healthy male non-smokers and 17 smokers (greater than 20 cigarettes per day) were measured before and after oxidation. TBARS in the freshly isolated LDL from non-smokers and smokers were similar, however, oxidized LDL samples from smokers developed nearly(More)
Pravastatin treatment of combined hyperlipidemia lowers low-density lipoprotein effectively; nicotinic acid lowers remnant cholesterol and raises high-density lipoprotein. A combination of these 2 drugs may be indicated for optimal treatment of lipoprotein abnormalities in combined hyperlipidemia.
The case of a 5 years old child with association of "moyamoya" and Down syndrome with permeability of internal carotid, of medial and anterior cerebral arteries is reported. The authors postulate the possibility of a microcirculatory disorder in view of the distal lesion including the action of any distribution of the alterations.
A case of callosal lipoma with radiologic, angiographic and CT comprovation is discussed under actual knowledge of metabolic and clinical aspect of lipomas. The authors also make considerations about surroundings and genetic factors which would play a role acting especifically with chemical biotrophism on developing cells, affecting the genesis of corpus(More)
Recent studies implicate loss of pericytes in hypoperfusion and blood-brain barrier (BBB) leakage in Alzheimer's disease (AD). In this study, we have measured levels of the pericyte marker, platelet-derived growth factor receptor-β (PDGFRB), and fibrinogen (to assess blood-brain barrier leakage), and analyzed their relationship to indicators of microvessel(More)
