Abstract Plasma lipoproteins contain variable amounts of lipid oxidation products (LOP), which are known to impair normal physiological functions and stimulate atherosclerotic processes. Recent evidence indicates that plasma lipoproteins are active carriers of LOP, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) directing transport toward peripheral tissues, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) being active in the reverse transport. It has been proposed that the lipoprotein-specific transport of LOP could play a… 
Association Between Oxidation-Modified Lipoproteins and Coronary Plaque in Psoriasis: An Observational Cohort Study
Traditional lipids did not capture risk of lipid-rich plaque as assessed by NCB, whereas assaying oxidation-modification of lipids revealed significant association with oxidized LDL and oxHDL.
Mediating effects of lipids on the association between smoking and coronary artery disease risk among Chinese
The study provides a clue on the mediation effect of lipids on the relationship between smoking and CAD risks, which is a novel insight to the progression of CAD.
Apolipoprotein B100/Low-Density Lipoprotein Regulates Proteolysis and Functions of von Willebrand Factor under Arterial Shear.
Results indicate that apoB100/LDL may be a novel physiological regulator for ADAMTS13-VWF functions, and significantly reduced ratios of high to low molecular weight of VWF multimers with increased levels of plasma VWF antigen were detected in mice fed with high cholesterol diet.
Menopause-Associated Lipid Metabolic Disorders and Foods Beneficial for Postmenopausal Women
Dietary recommendations and beneficial compounds, such as vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, phytochemicals—and their food sources—are discussed to aid the management of abnormal lipid metabolism in postmenopausal women.
Protective Effects of Curcumin in Cardiovascular Diseases—Impact on Oxidative Stress and Mitochondria
Curcumin as a nutraceutical could hold promise in the prevention of CVDs, but more standardized clinical trials are required to fully unravel its potential.
From Mitochondria to Atherosclerosis: The Inflammation Path
The role of mitochondria in atherosclerosis is focused on while keeping inflammation as a link to understand the pathways behind mitochondrial-based inflammation in atheroma progression.


Translation of High-Density Lipoprotein Function Into Clinical Practice: Current Prospects and Future Challenges
The best known of the potentially antiatherogenic functions of HDLs is their ability to promote cholesterol efflux from cells, including that from macrophages in the arterial wall, and HDL-C is an inadequate surrogate measure for the most heralded of HDL functions.
High-density lipoprotein inhibits the oxidative modification of low-density lipoprotein.
Lipoprotein-specific transport of circulating lipid peroxides
It is proposed that the specific atherosclerosis-related effects of serum lipoproteins are not explained by cholesterol transport alone and may rather result from the transport of the more directly atherogenic lipid peroxides.
Apolipoprotein M binds oxidized phospholipids and increases the antioxidant effect of HDL.
High Density Lipoprotein Level is Negatively Associated With the Increase of Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein Lipids After a Fatty Meal
Results of the present study show that HDL is associated with the postprandial appearance of lipid peroxides in LDL, and it is likely that the sequestration and transport of atherogenic lipidPeroxides is another significant mechanism contributing to cardioprotection by HDL.
High density lipoprotein is the major carrier of lipid hydroperoxides in human blood plasma from fasting donors.
The data show that HDL is the principal vehicle for circulating plasma lipid hydroperoxides and suggest that HDL lipids may be more rapidly oxidized than those in LDL in vivo, and could imply a possible beneficial role of HDL by attenuating the build-up of oxidized lipids in LDL.

A group of bioactive components of oxidized phospholipids with barrier-protective effects towards endothelial cells in the models of agonist-induced endothelial permeability and lipopolysaccharide-induced lung dysfunction are characterized.
Role of oxidative modifications in atherosclerosis.
An "oxidative response to inflammation" model is proposed as a means of reconciling the response-to-injury and oxidative modification hypotheses of atherosclerosis.
