The effects of Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) diets, low and high in dietary fish, on apolipoprotein metabolism were examined. Subjects were provided with a Western diet for 6 weeks, followed by 24 weeks of either of two TLC diets (10/group). Apolipoprotein kinetics were determined in the fed state using stable isotope methods and compartmental modeling(More)
Dose-associated effects of rosuvastatin on the metabolism of apolipoprotein (apo) B-100 in triacylglycerol rich lipoprotein (TRL, d < 1.019 g/ml) and low density lipoprotein (LDL) and of apoA-I in high density lipoprotein (HDL) were assessed in subjects with combined hyperlipidemia. Our primary hypothesis was that maximal dose rosuvastatin would decrease(More)
When human apolipoprotein A-I was expressed in transgenic rats, induction of the nephrotic syndrome resulted in plasma A-I levels exceeding 10 mg/ml. Plasma lipids were no higher than in non-transgenic nephrotic rats. To explain this, the livers from four groups of rats were perfused: wild-type controls (WC), high expressor human apoA-I transgenic controls(More)
