The fatty acid composition in platelet phospholipids and in the plasma lipid esters as well as the serum lipoprotein lipid concentrations were determined in 67 healthy male subjects in order to establish the relationships between blood lipids and platelets. A positive correlation was found between the concentrations of the triglyceride rich serum(More)
We modified the method of Pohorecky and Brick (14) for determination of ethanol (ETOH) concentrations in rebreathed air of rats. Rats were injected with different doses (1-2 g/kg) of ETOH and both arterial blood and rebreathed air samples were collected at various time intervals (15-120 min) after administration. We found a very good correlation (r = .96)(More)
Serum lipoproteins, fatty acids in plasma lipid esters and in platelet phospholipids were assessed in 64 patients with ischaemic heart disease (IHD) and in 67 controls. Hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP) (VLDL triglycerides greater than 1.4 mmol/l and/or LDL cholesterol greater than 5.2 mmol/l) was found in 64% of the patients. In the plasma lipid esters the(More)
Three groups of rats were maintained on diets containing different proportions oftrans fatty acids (0, 18.3 or 36.6% of the total fatty acids) for eight weeks. No differences in body weight were observed among the three groups, but the fat cell size, determined in epididymal fat, differed significantly between the controls and the rats fed diets(More)
The content of 4-demethyl-, 4-monomethyl- and 4,4-dimethylsterols in 13 vegetable oils was found to vary between 0.10–1.4%, 0.01–0.08% and 0.02–0.29%, respectively. The largest amount of demethylsterols was found in maize and wheat germ oils, whereas the largest amounts of the dimethylsterols were found in olive and linseed oils. The predominating(More)
