Benefits and risks of sauna bathing.
TLDR
Sauna bathing is safe, however, for most people with coronary heart disease with stable angina pectoris or old myocardial infarction, and alcohol consumption during sauna bathing increases the risk of hypotension, arrhythmia, and sudden death, and should be avoided.
Biochemical markers of alcoholism
TLDR
New biomarkers, not yet used in routine clinical work, include phosphatidylethanol, fatty acid ethyl esters, ethyl glucuronide, sialic acid, and acetaldehyde adducts.
The effects of transdermal dihydrotestosterone in the aging male: a prospective, randomized, double blind study.
TLDR
As estrogens are thought to play a role in the pathogenesis of prostate hyperplasia, DHT may be beneficial, compared with aromatizing androgens, in the treatment of aging men.
Reduction in the concentration and activity of plasma cholesteryl ester transfer protein by alcohol.
TLDR
During 2 weeks of alcohol withdrawal, plasma CETP concentration and activity of 8 subjects increased, whereas HDL cholesterol decreased by 42% (P less than 0.02), and this paper concludes that alcohol consumption is associated with increased HDL cholesterol concentration and reduced CETP activity.
Effect of Alcohol on Lipids and Lipoproteins in Relation to Atherosclerosis
TLDR
The present review discusses the effects of alcohol on lipoproteins in cholesterol transport, as well as the novel effects of lipoproduins on vascular wall cells.
Relation of polymorphisms in the cholesteryl ester transfer protein gene to transfer protein activity and plasma lipoprotein levels in alcohol drinkers.
TLDR
The data indicate that CETP TaqI B polymorphism is related to plasma CETP activity and HDL cholesterol concentration in non-smoking men, but these associations are affected by smoking and alcohol drinking.
Increased high‐density lipoprotein cholesterol concentration in alcoholics is related to low cholesteryl ester transfer protein activity
TLDR
CETP activity in plasma from 30 alcoholics without severe liver damage and 16 control subjects was compared to test the hypothesis that a defect in cholesteryl ester transfer could be responsible for the alcohol‐induced alteration in cholesterol distribution between lipoproteins.
Altered transfer of cholesteryl esters and phospholipids in plasma from alcohol abusers.
TLDR
Addition of VLDL enhanced the CE NMT from HDL to apoB-containing lipoproteins, whereas addition of HDL had an opposite effect, and at higher HDL levels, even reversed the direction ofCE NMT.
A method for determination of phosphatidylethanol from high density lipoproteins by reversed-phase HPLC with TOF-MS detection.
TLDR
Liquid chromatographic method using reversed-phase C8 column and negative ion mode electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry detection with time-of-flight (TOF) instrument was developed for the determination of very small amounts of PEth that might be present on blood HDL particles.
The effects of monounsaturated-fat enriched diet and polyunsaturated-fat enriched diet on lipid and glucose metabolism in subjects with impaired glucose tolerance.
TLDR
In free-living subjects with impaired glucose tolerance both the Mono-diet and the Poly-d diet consumed after a saturated-fat enriched Run-in diet improved serum lipid profile and the mono-d Diet seemed to improve glucose metabolism as well.
