Visceral leishmaniasis remains a major public health concern in many parts of the tropical and subtropical world. The infection is also accompanied by lipid profile alterations. The aim of the study was to assess lipid profile among patients infected with visceral leishmaniasis and healthy control in Northwest Ethiopia. A total of 140 study participants (70 case and 70 healthy controls) were enrolled. A Five milliliter venous blood was collected at the time of diagnosis. Serum was extracted…

Diagnostic lipid changes in patients with visceral leishmaniasis

Coexistence of high TGs and low HDL-C values may suggest VL infection in a febrile patient.

Alterations in lipoprotein density classes in infantile visceral Leishmaniasis: presence of apolipoprotein SAA

It was suggested that the profound changes in the lipoprotein metabolism of these young patients may be due to the increased hepatic synthesis of apolipoprotein SAA and/or to their altered immune function during active visceral Leishmaniasis.

Plasma lipoproteins in visceral leishmaniasis and their effect on Leishmania‐infected macrophages

It is proposed herein that LDL may influence the development of VL by promoting the production of TNF‐α by infected macrophages, and a decrease in plasma LDL in some VL patients (to 20 mg/mL or less); however, would tend to reduce the production Of tumour necrosis factor‐α and therefore to limit theDevelopment of immune‐mediated pathology.

Severe hypocholesterolemia with reduced serum lipoprotein(a) in a patient with visceral leishmaniasis.

A 36-yr-old man with visceral leishmaniasis who presented with marked hypocholesterolemia, mild hypertriglyceridemia, severely decreased serum levels of HDL-cholesterol, LDL-ch cholesterol, apolipoproteins AI and B, and increased serum level of apoliprotein E was reported, which is the first published report on Lp(a) levels in kala-azar.

The burden of neglected tropical diseases in Ethiopia, and opportunities for integrated control and elimination

To achieve success in integrated control of NTDs, integrated mapping, rapid scale up of interventions and operational research into co implementation of intervention packages will be crucial.

Relationship between body composition with Blood Lipids profile

A significant relationship was found between body mass index, pattern of fat distribution and blood lipids which were among risk factors of cardiac diseases; however, no difference was found among active and sedentary participants based on the level of physical activity.

The association between body mass index, lipid profiles and total cholesterol among married versus spinster.

It is confirmed that cholesterol level increased with increasing BMI case women married in the opposite of a spinster, which is in conformity with the similar studies which advised the positive relationship between BMI and triglycerides related to lower HDL cholesterol and its relationship to lipoprotein lipase activity.

Relationship of hypolipidemia to cytokine concentrations and outcomes in critically ill surgical patients

Low cholesterol and lipoprotein concentrations found in critically ill surgical patients correlate with interleukin-6, soluble interleukesin-2 receptor, and interleukain-10 concentrations and predict clinical outcomes.

Association of Body Mass Index and Lipid Profiles: Evaluation of a Broad Spectrum of Body Mass Index Patients Including the Morbidly Obese

Although the association between BMI and both HDL and TG may be explained by insulin resistance, the lack of a significant association Between BMI and LDL remains an unexpected finding that requires further investigation.

Role of cholesterol in parasitic infections

Present review of literature shows that parasites induce significant changes in lipid parameters, as has been shown in the in vitro study where substitution of serum by lipid/cholesterol in medium and in experimental models (in vivo).
