Low carbohydrate, high protein diet promotes atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E/low-density lipoprotein receptor double knockout mice (apoE/LDLR(-/-)).

Although in apoE/LDLR(-/-) mice atherosclerotic plaques develop spontaneously, various atherogenic diets (e.g. Western diet) are frequently used to accelerate the disease in this model. The objective of this study was to compare the effects on atherosclerosis of Western diet and other types of high-fat, high cholesterol, hypertriglyceridemic diets with the… CONTINUE READING
