While low apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) levels are primarily associated with increased high density lipoprotein (HDL) fractional catabolic rate (FCR), the factors that regulate the clearance of HDL from the plasma are unclear. In this study, the effect of lipid composition of reconstituted HDL particles (LpA-I) on their rate of clearance from rabbit plasma(More)
Recent investigations suggest that high-density lipoprotein (HDL) may play an anti-atherogenic role as an antioxidant and inhibit the oxidative modification of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). The antioxidant activity of HDL has been proposed to be associated with several HDL-bound proteins. We have purified one HDL-associated protein, lecithin:cholesterol(More)
Nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics (hereafter NGx) have stimulated expectations for beneficial applications in public health and individuals. Yet, the potential achievability of such promise is not without socioethical considerations that challenge NGx implementation. This paper focuses on the opinions of NGx researchers about potential risks raised by NGx.(More)
