Postprandial Hypertriglyceridemia Increases Circulating Levels of Endothelial Cell Microparticles

Abstract

Background—This study evaluated a possible relationship between levels of endothelial microparticles (EMPs), known to be a sensitive indicator of endothelial disturbance, and changes in postprandial lipid levels in healthy volunteers after a lowor high-fat meal. Methods and Results—Eighteen healthy subjects without known cardiovascular risk factors were… (More)
