Raised plasma endothelin-1 concentrations in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia without evidence of atherosclerosis.


The present study was designed to investigate the pattern of circulating endothelin-1 (ET-1), a potent vasoconstricting mitogenic endothelium-derived peptide, in relation to primary increase in serum cholesterol in humans. We measured plasma ET-1 concentrations by radioimmunoassay (Amersham, UK) in 8 patients (6 females and 2 males, aged 42-62 years) with… (More)
