NO activity in familial combined hyperlipidemia: potential role of cholesterol remnants.


OBJECTIVE Patients with familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCH) have an increased cardiovascular mortality despite only moderate elevations of LDL-cholesterol. Since endothelial NO release is intimately involved in the anti-atherosclerotic effects of the endothelium, we studied the effect of short-term lipid-lowering therapy on NO-mediated vasodilatation in… (More)
