The aortic connective tissue components, collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans were isolated and quantitated from monkeys with experimentally-induced fatty streaks, from monkeys on a diet allowing regression of these lesions, and from controls. Although no variations were noted for total, soluble, and autoclavable collagen based on concentration,(More)
This report describes the age-race specific distribution of fatty acids in samples of adipose tissue taken from both the perirenal and buttock areas of 406 men autopsied in a community pathology study. This analysis of fatty acid composition of adipose tissue is part of a comprehensive investigation of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease in a(More)
We report fatty acid composition in perirenal and buttock adipose tissue in 714 deceased black and white men aged 25-44 yr in New Orleans. Percent saturated fatty acids were higher (p less than 0.001) whereas percent monounsaturated fatty acids were lower (p less than 0.001) in perirenal than in buttock fat. Percent linoleic acid was similar in both races.(More)
"Soft" fats were found to depress significantly serum cholesterol levels in diets of high energy to protein (E/P) ratio but not in diets of low energy to protein ratios. A low (E/P) ratio depressed serum cholesterol values, regardless of the type of fat in the diet. The E/P ratio may represent the unknown factor in the equations of workers who have tried to(More)
This report presents findings concerning free and esterified cholesterol and specific fatty acids esterified to cholesterol in aortas of rhesus monkeys fed an atherogenic diet for 12 weeks followed by regression regimen for 32 and 64 weeks. Mean aortic total cholesterol of monkeys fed an atherogenic diet was more than twice that of the animals on a control(More)
Serum lipid and lipoprotein responses to diets with a high level of simple carbohydrate (69% w/w sucrose) and a low level of saturated fat (5% w/w butter-coconut oil, polyunsaturated/saturated fatty acid ratio 0.03) containing 0, 0.1, and 1.0 mg/kcal added cholesterol was studied in five squirrel (Saimiri sciurea) monkeys. Variations in response produced by(More)
