AIMS To investigate the effect of pregnancy on serum concentrations of lipids, lipoproteins, and apolipoproteins. METHODS Fasting serum concentrations of total cholesterol, triglyceride, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), apolipoproteins AI, AII, and B, and lipoprotein (a) were measured in 178 women with(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the correlation between angiographic coronary artery disease (CAD) and plasma lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] concentration in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In this cross-sectional study of 36 patients with NIDDM who underwent coronary angiography, CAD was assessed visually using a coronary artery(More)
AIMS To investigate differences in serum lipid, lipoprotein and apolipoprotein concentrations in pregnant women of different ethnic origin. METHODS Serum lipid, lipoprotein and apolipoprotein concentrations were measured in 232 women (114 Caucasians, 118 Africans/Afro-Caribbeans), who presented consecutively for screening for gestational diabetes in the(More)
We examined the covariability of subclinical albuminuria in a cohort of 160 insulin-dependent diabetics who underwent simultaneous measurements of overnight urinary albumin excretion rate (UAV) and several clinical variables on 7 occasions over a period of 18 months. After allowing for within-patient correlation between visits, significant within-patient(More)
We measured fasting serum lipids, lipoproteins, apolipoproteins and lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] in 49 Caucasian patients with transient ischaemic attacks undergoing carotid angiography. The severity of extracranial cerebrovascular disease was assessed visually by a highly reproducible grading system that focused on the internal carotid artery and carotid(More)
