Effects of 6-week treatment with 4 g daily of nicotinic acid on fatty acid composition in different serum lipids and in adipose tissue glycerides were studied in 31 hyperlipidemic patients. The percentages of eight fatty acids in triglycerides, phospholipids and cholesteryl esters of whole plasma as well as in subcutaneous adipose tissue glycerides were measured. Nicotinic acid treatment produced decreases in triglyceride and total cholesterol concentrations of VLDL and LDL, whereas HDL total… Expand
Variation in the human lipidome associated with coffee consumption as revealed by quantitative targeted metabolomics.
Results from a metabolomics study of coffee consumption demonstrate strong positive associations between coffee consumption and two classes of sphingomyelins and a negative association between Coffee consumption and long- and medium-chain acylcarnitines. Expand
The Metabolic and Performance Effects of Caffeine Compared to Coffee during Endurance Exercise
It is illustrated that both caffeine (5 mg/kg/BW) and coffee consumed 1 h prior to exercise can improve endurance exercise performance. Expand


Influence of nicotinic acid on metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides in man.
It is doubtful that nicotinic acid enhances the risk for cholesterol gallstones, as there was not a significant increase in molar % cholesterol or in % saturation of gallbladder bile, andKinetic modeling of the VLDL-TG data suggested that the TG reduction was due to a decrease in TG content of V LDL and hence a reduction in lipoprotein size more than number.

The Effect of Nicotinic Acid Treatment on the Chemical Composition of Plasma Lipoprotein Classes in Man
Nicotinic acid is one of several available agents which lower the levels of plasma lipids (1). For several years, we have been using nicotinic acid in the treatment of patients with coronary heartExpand
Mechanisms of hypolipidemic action of nicotinic acid
The primary mechanism of hypolipidemic action of NA appears to be its antilipolytic action on adipose tissue, which is probably secondary to the reduction in the circulating pool of plasma free fauy acids. Expand
Effects of bezafibrate on the serum lipoprotein lipid and apolipoprotein composition, lipoprotein triglyceride removal capacity and the fatty acid composition of the plasma lipid esters.
Bezafibrate treatment caused significant changes in the plasma lipid fatty acid composition, mainly by increasing the mono-unsaturated fatty acids (palmitoleate and oleate) concomitant with a significant decrease in the content of linoleate. Expand
Changes in the fatty acid composition of the plasma lipid esters during lipid-lowering treatment with diet, clofibrate and niceritrol. Reduction of the proportion of linoleate by clofibrate but not by niceritrol.
It is concluded that addition of clofibrate treatment to patients who are on a diet enriched with polyunsaturated fats is associated with a change from polyuns saturated to monounsaturated fatty acids in the plasma lipid esters but does not significantly effect the ratio betweenpolyunsaturated and saturated fatty acids.

Influence of polyunsaturated fats and fat restriction on serum lipoproteins in humans.
Responses to therapeutic polyunsaturated diet are lowered levels of VLDL and LDL, but unchanged levels of HDL, indicating that additional restriction of dietary fat intake alters the V LDL composition with a decrement in apolipoprotein E enriched VLDl particles. Expand
Effects on the serum lipoprotein concentrations by lipid-lowering diets with different fatty acid compositions.
It has been reported that lipid-lowering diets may reduce high density lipoprotein as well as low density lipoprotein cholesterol but that the reduction of the high density lipoproteins is lessExpand
Summary Gas chromatographic analysis has been made of the esterified fatty acid composition of pooled sera obtained from men with ischaemic heart disease before, during and after the administrationExpand
Fatty-acid distribution in the lipid fractions of healthy persons of different age, patients with atherosclerosis and patients with idiopathic hyperlipidaemia.
In cases of hypercholesterolaemia, hyperphospholipidaemia and hyperglyceridaemia there appear in the serum additional esters which contain more saturated and mono-unsaturated and fewer polyunsaturated fatty acids. Expand
Substituting polyunsaturated for saturated fat as a single change in a Swedish diet: effects on serum lipoprotein metabolism and glucose tolerance in patients with hyperlipoproteinaemia
The effects of the PUFA diet were less pronounced than the effects of conventional lipid lowering diets where also the fat content has been reduced and where complex carbohydrates have been substituted for simple carbohydrates. Expand
