A diet restricted in saturated fat and cholesterol is recommended for subjects with elevated LDL cholesterol concentrations before and during drug therapy. Gender differences in lipoprotein subspecies response to such diets have not been studied in detail. We examined the effects of a diet low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol (Therapeutic(More)
The purpose of our study was to investigate high density lipoprotein (HDL) apolipoprotein (apo) A-I and apoA-II kinetics in a state of constant feeding after a primed-constant infusion of [5,5,5-H3]L-leucine in 32 normolipidemic older men and postmenopausal women (aged 41 to 79 years). ApoA-I and apoA-II were isolated from plasma HDL, and enrichment was(More)
The effect of fish consumption on plasma lipoprotein subfraction concentrations was studied in 22 men and women (age > 40 y). Subjects were provided an average American diet (AAD, 35% of energy as fat, 14% as saturated fat, and 35 mg cholesterol/MJ) for 6 wk before being assigned to a National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Step 2 high-fish diet (n =(More)
