[Lipid peroxidation and development of dystrophic changes in the intervertebral disks during atherosclerosis].

Abstract

Lipoproteins of intervertebral discs, spinal cord and blood were studied spectrofluorimetrically in experimental atherosclerosis. Lipoproteins and hydroperoxides accumulated in the intervertebral discs under dystrophic conditions. Blood serum lipoproteins were involved in pathogenesis of these atheromatous impairments in the intervertebral discs. Content of lipoproteins in the discs might be normalized by means of diet-fasting therapy.
