Chylomicron remnants stimulate release of interleukin-1beta by THP-1 cells.

Recent findings suggest that the oxidative modification of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and an increase in triglyceride-rich lipoprotein particles including chylomicron remnants contribute to the progression of atherosclerosis, as does the inflammatory response. We therefore examined whether and how these lipoproteins affected interleukin (IL)-1beta… CONTINUE READING
