Cigarette smoking-induced low-density lipoprotein ( LDL ) dysfunction is partially reversible after smoking cessation

  title={Cigarette smoking-induced low-density lipoprotein ( LDL ) dysfunction is partially reversible after smoking cessation},
  author={L. Chen and Shi-Cheng Li and C. Yang and Y. Zhang and C. Feng and Wan-Long Wu and Xiao-Wei Yan},
Objective: This study was designed to investigate the effects of smoking and smoking cessation on proinflammatory and pro-oxidative properties of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Methods: This randomized, prospective, and parallel controlled study included seventeen non-smokers and forty long-term smokers, divided randomly into a smoking cessation group (n=20) and smoking continued group (n=20). Measurements of anthropometric data and fasting laboratory tests were carried out before and after… Expand

Increase in the oxidised low-density lipoprotein level by smoking and the possible inhibitory effect of statin therapy in patients with cardiovascular disease: a retrospective study
Objectives Malondialdehyde-modified low-density lipoprotein (MDA-LDL) level is a marker of oxidative stress and is linked to progression of arteriosclerosis; however, the clinical factors affectingExpand
Dysfunctional lipoproteins from young smokers exacerbate cellular senescence and atherogenesis with smaller particle size and severe oxidation and glycation.
Smoking can cause production of dysfunctional lipoproteins having a smaller particle size that exacerbate senescence and atherogenic progress due to oxidation and glycation. Expand
Associations of Tobacco Smoking with Impaired Endothelial Function: The Circulatory Risk in Communities Study (CIRCS)
Heavy and chronic smokers were associated with a high prevalence of impaired endothelial function and those associations did not change substantially after adjustment for other cardiovascular risk factors. Expand
Effects of Smoking and Cessation on Subclinical Arterial Disease: A Substudy of a Randomized Controlled Trial
The rapid reduction in cardiovascular disease events observed with smoking cessation is unlikely to be mediated by changes in subclinical atherosclerosis burden and increasing body-mass index and antihypertensive medication use were the most important independent predictors. Expand
The relationship between smoking intensity and subclinical cardiovascular injury: The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA).
Smoking intensity was associated with early biomarkers of CVD, particularly, markers of systemic inflammation, and hsCRP may be the most sensitive. Expand
Cigarette-smoke-induced atherogenic lipid profiles in plasma and vascular tissue of apolipoprotein E-deficient mice are attenuated by smoking cessation.
Despite the smoking cessation-dependent metabolic changes leading to increased animal body weight, accumulation of proatherogenic lipids in the vessel was halted after exposure cessation, indicating that the clinical benefits of smoking cessation translate directly to the vessel wall and its lipid makeup.

The impact of tetrahydrobiopterin administration on endothelial function before and after smoking cessation in chronic smokers
The findings suggest that the blunted FMD observed in chronic smokers, likely due at least in part to reduced BH4 bioactivity and eNOS uncoupling, can be restored with smoking cessation. Expand
The implication of cigarette smoking and cessation on macrophage cholesterol efflux in coronary artery disease patients[S]
It was tobacco tar, rather than nicotine or carbon monoxide, that played a major role in the tobacco-induced disturbance of cellular cholesterol homeostasis and that tobacco abstinence reversed the function and expression of ABCA1, especially in CAD patients. Expand
Carbamylated low-density lipoprotein induces endothelial dysfunction.
In patients with CKD, LDL-carbamyl-lysine levels were significant predictors for cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality and indicates a novel mechanism in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic disease which may be pathogenic and prognostic in patients with chronic kidney disease and high plasma levels of cLDL.

Serum levels of nitric oxide and cytokines in smokers at the beginning and after 4months of treatment for smoking cessation.
The results may not mean harm to the body, but an adaptive process, decreasing the metabolism of abstinents due to the reduction of the use of nicotine. Expand
