In vivo protection against endotoxin by plasma high density lipoprotein.
Overwhelming bacterial infection is accompanied by fever, hypotension, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and multiple organ failure leading to death in 30-80% of cases. These classical symptomsExpand

Visualization of hepatitis C virions and putative defective interfering particles isolated from low‐density lipoproteins
SUMMARY. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) in highly infectious sera has been shown to be predominantly associated with low‐density lipoproteins. To determine whether the association is specific to low‐densityExpand

Interleukin-6 predicts hypoalbuminemia, hypocholesterolemia, and mortality in hemodialysis patients.
Low serum albumin and low serum cholesterol levels are among the most consistent predictors of mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing hemodialysis. Hypoalbuminemia isExpand

Tumor Necrosis Factor-&agr; Mediates Cardiac Remodeling and Ventricular Dysfunction After Pressure Overload State
Background— Pressure overload is accompanied by cardiac myocyte apoptosis, hypertrophy, and inflammatory/fibrogenic responses that lead to ventricular remodeling and heart failure. Despite incompleteExpand

Reconstituted high-density lipoprotein neutralizes gram-negative bacterial lipopolysaccharides in human whole blood.
We have tested hypotheses relating lipoprotein structure to function as measured by the relative ability to neutralize endotoxin by comparing natural human lipoproteins, a chemically defined form ofExpand

Plasma mevalonate as a measure of cholesterol synthesis in man.
Measurement of mevalonic acid (MVA) concentrations in plasma or 24-h urine samples is shown to be useful in studies of the regulation of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase andExpand
