Plasma lipids, lipoproteins, tissue lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and hepatic lipase (H-TGL) were studied in 7 patients with familial hyperchylomicronemia from four different families. Their first-degree relative were also studied. The patients were heterogeneous for the genetic defect; LPL activity was absent in five patients (LPL deficiency) but normal in two. However, these two did not have apo C-II, the physiological activator of LPL (C-II deficiency). There were no significant differences in… CONTINUE READING
