BACKGROUND The fatty acid content and saturation degree of the diet can modulate HDL composition and cholesterol efflux. OBJECTIVE We studied the modifications in plasma lipoprotein particles and serum capacity to stimulate cholesterol efflux induced by different fatty acids. DESIGN Seventeen women and 24 men followed in the same sequence 4 diets(More)
BACKGROUND In Spain the mortality rate due to cardiovascular disease (CVD) is relatively low compared to that of other developed countries. Until now few epidemiological studies have been performed among the global Spanish population to evaluate a relation between CVD risk factors and the lipid profile that could justify our privileged situation. For, this(More)
AIMS To analyse the influence of lean pork (P) and veal (V) consumption on the lipid profile of healthy subjects within the framework of a healthy diet comprising low levels of total fat (TF), saturated fatty acids (SFA) and cholesterol. DESIGN Double-crossover, randomized and controlled trial SUBJECTS 44 healthy individuals (22 male and 22 female),(More)
Increased plasma lipoprotein(a)-Lp(a)-levels are linked to a high risk of cardiovascular disease unrelated to other lipoproteins. It seems that Lp(a) values in childhood remain unaltered up to adulthood. In a randomly chosen population of 1970 children, aged from 4 to 18 years and living in a Spanish community, the following serum parameters were studied:(More)
BACKGROUND To know the distribution of phenotypes Lp(a) in an young population. METHODS Lipoprotein levels, lipoprotein(a), apolipoproteins and the Lp(a) phenotypes were determined in 105 children, selected according to their cholesterol concentrations. RESULTS The Lp(a) concentrations were significantly higher in group with low molecular weight respect(More)
