Patients (pts) with ESRD frequently have atherogenic lipoprotein profiles. In early atherosclerotic lesions, monocyte-derived macrophages develop into foam cells through accumulation of cholesterol (Chol). We measured lipoprotein profiles in plasma and lipids in MO of 6 pts (age 14.4±3.2 y) treated by peritoneal dialysis (PD), 10 pts (age 15.4±4.3 y)(More)
Recent studies suggest that circulating blood monocytes may serve as a lipid clearance system in early atherosclerotic lesions. To evaluate the influence of moderate hyperlipoproteinemia on monocyte lipid concentrations, we measured fasting serum and monocyte lipid levels in 7 healthy individuals, in 7 patients with primary hypercholesterolemia and in 17(More)
