AIMS We studied the clinical and immunological importance of fasting cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides in patients with chronic heart failure in relation to plasma concentrations of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha), soluble TNF receptor-1 and -2 (sTNF-R1 and -R2), and a ratio potentially indicating recent endotoxin bioactivity (soluble [s] CD14/total cholesterol). METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-eight stable, non-oedematous patients with established heart failure and 19 controls were… CONTINUE READING
