OBJECTIVES The oxidation of low-density lipoproteins has been recently proposed as one of the critical factors in promoting atherogenesis. This process results from the balance between the prooxidant stimuli and the endogenous antioxidants present in LDL and strictly depends on the concentration of oxidizable substrates, namely unsaturated fatty acids. METHODS Twelve male hypertriglyceridaemic patients were investigated before and after oral supplementation with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty… CONTINUE READING
