Evidence to support an important role of oxidative modification in mediating the atherogenicity of LDL continues to grow. New hypotheses suggest mechanisms by which Ox-LDL or products of Ox-LDL can affect many components of the atherogenic process, including vasomotor properties and thrombosis, as well as lesion initiation and progression itself. These ideas suggest new approaches, that in combination with lowering of plasma cholesterol, could lead to the prevention of atherosclerosis and its… Expand
The oxidation hypothesis of atherosclerosis: an update.

TLDR
Recent research on the oxidation of LDL lipids, the effect of antioxidants, hypertensives, and other agents, the interaction of LDL with extrinsic factors, as well as patient studies which bear onThe oxidation hypothesis are summarised in this review. Expand
Is oxidized low-density lipoprotein present in vivo?
TLDR
Recent findings regarding the presence of oxidized LDL (ox-LDL) in vivo and the significance of ox- LDL autoantibody measurements as a tool to predict cardiovascular diseases in various patient populations are discussed. Expand
The Dynamics of Oxidized LDL during Atherogenesis
TLDR
The in vivo dynamics of OxLDL are discussed and it is shown that the accumulation of cholesterol within the foam cells of atherosclerotic lesions can be transferred between the lesions and the circulation. Expand
Sources of Vascular Oxidative Stress
Atherosclerotic vascular disease is the leading cause of death in industrialized society. One important risk factor for the onset of atherosclerosis is an elevated concentration of low densityExpand
Is lipid peroxidation relevant to atherogenesis?
  • J. Heinecke
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • The Journal of clinical investigation
  • 1999
TLDR
Observations that structurally unrelated lipid-soluble antioxidants inhibit atherogenesis in animal models of hypercholesterolemia are relevant to human disease, because a recent clinical trial of vitamin E suggests that antioxidant therapy inhibits the clinical sequelae of atherosclerosis. Expand
Lipoprotein oxidation in cardiovascular disease: chief culprit or innocent bystander?
  • J. Heinecke
  • Medicine
  • The Journal of experimental medicine
  • 2006
TLDR
It is suggested that the protective effect of probucol depends not on its ability to inhibit lipid oxidation, but on its able to induce the stress-induced antiinflammatory enzyme heme oxygenase (HO)-1. Expand
The Oxidative Modification Hypothesis of Atherogenesis
TLDR
The oxidation hypothesis is still viable, but a great deal needs to be learned in order to design the appropriate clinical trials to properly test the importance of oxidation in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in humans. Expand
The Role of Paraoxonase in Lipid Metabolism
TLDR
High-density lipoprotein can retard the oxidation of LDL through the action of PON1 which hydrolyzes oxidized-phospholipids and cholesteryl-esters on LDL, HDL and in atherosclerotic plaques, thus retarding oxidation and attenuating the inflammatory process of atherosclerosis. Expand
Statins and Oxidative Stress During Atherogenesis
TLDR
Recent data reinforce the concept that a regular intake of antioxidants present in food blocks the progression of atherosclerosis and that the reduced ability of LDL to oxidise may represent a good marker to follow the action of antioxidants. Expand
Low-Density Lipoproteins in Atherogenesis
It is well established that high levels of plasma cholesterol, particularly those associated with low-density lipoprotein (LDL), increase the risk of developing atherosclerosis. It is also clear thatExpand

TLDR
In this short review, in vivo evidence as well as in vitro evidence is presented supporting the proposition that modification of native LDL is a prerequisite for foam cell formation and atherogenesis. Expand
Oxidatively modified low density lipoproteins: a potential role in recruitment and retention of monocyte/macrophages during atherogenesis.
TLDR
A pathogenetic sequence by which elevated plasma LDL levels, followed by oxidative modification in the arterial wall, could sufficiently account for the generation of the lipid-laden foam cells and the initiation of the fatty streak, the earliest well-defined lesion in atherogenesis. Expand
Low density lipoprotein undergoes oxidative modification in vivo.
TLDR
Three mutually supportive lines of evidence for oxidation of LDL in vivo are presented and autoantibodies against malondialdehyde-LDL (titers from 512 to greater than 4096) can be demonstrated in rabbit and human sera. Expand
Antiatherogenic effect of probucol unrelated to its hypocholesterolemic effect: evidence that antioxidants in vivo can selectively inhibit low density lipoprotein degradation in macrophage-rich fatty streaks and slow the progression of atherosclerosis in the Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbit.
TLDR
Treatment with probucol significantly reduced the rate of development of fatty-streak lesions even though plasma cholesterol levels were no lower than lovastatin-treated (control) rabbits. Expand
A role for endothelial cell lipoxygenase in the oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein.
TLDR
It is proposed that an important element in cell-induced oxidation of LDL depends on lipoxygenase oxidation of cellular lipids, followed by their exchange into LDL in the medium; (ii) direct lipoxyGENase-dependent oxidation of HDL lipids during LDL-cell contact; or both. Expand
Evidence for a dominant role of lipoxygenase(s) in the oxidation of LDL by mouse peritoneal macrophages.
TLDR
The relative contributions of superoxide anions and cellular lipoxygenase (LO) in the modification of LDL by macrophages are examined and it is concluded that the modificationof LDL by Macrophages is mediated in large part by lip oxygengenase-type activity. Expand
Preservation of the endogenous antioxidants in low density lipoprotein by ascorbate but not probucol during oxidative modification.
TLDR
In addition to being as potent as probucol in inhibiting the oxidation of LDL, ascorbate in contrast preserves the endogenous antioxidants in the LDL, which is an important water-soluble, chain-breaking antioxidant in humans. Expand
Modification of human serum low density lipoprotein by oxidation--characterization and pathophysiological implications.
TLDR
Speculations relating oxidized LDL to pathological conditions such as atherosclerosis are presented and its recognition by the scavenger receptor on macrophages, its cytotoxicity especially to proliferating cells, and its chemotactic properties with respect to monocyte-macrophages are presented. Expand
Low density lipoprotein rich in oleic acid is protected against oxidative modification: implications for dietary prevention of atherosclerosis.
TLDR
The results suggest that diets sufficiently enriched in oleic acid, in addition to their LDL-lowering effect, may slow the progression of atherosclerosis by generating LDL that is highly resistant to oxidative modification. Expand
