OBJECTIVE The metabolic syndrome is characterized by defective hepatic apolipoprotein B-100 (apoB) metabolism. Hepato-intestinal cholesterol metabolism may contribute to this abnormality. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES We examined the association of cholesterol absorption and synthesis with the kinetics of apoB in 35 obese subjects with the metabolic syndrome. Plasma ratios of campesterol and lathosterol to cholesterol were used to estimate cholesterol absorption and synthesis, respectively… CONTINUE READING
