PURPOSE To investigate the degree of placental permeability in dyslipidemic rabbits and the consequent vascular dysfunction in fetuses of female rabbits with high lipoprotein levels. METHODS Fifteen adult females New Zealand White rabbits were divided into two groups. Group 1(n=5) - hypercholesterolemic diet with 0.5% cholesterol, and Group 2 (n=10) - control. On day 30, the levels of plasma lipoproteins and triglycerides were analyzed in the mothers, and the presence of collagen was analyzed… Expand
Natural cocoa inhibits maternal hypercholesterolaemia-induced atherogenesis in rabbit pups.
TLDR
Inferentially, regular and voluntary consumption of NCP during pregnancy may inhibit aortic atherogenesis in offspring of hypercholesterolaemic mothers. Expand
Dietary cholesterol atherogenic changes in juvenile rabbits.
TLDR
This is the first study to show that dietary cholesterol-induced atherogenic changes markedly occur during a short period in juvenile rabbits, and marked intimal thickening and macrophage accumulation in the aortic lesions of rabbits in the younger group is shown. Expand
Effect of Allium Sativum Extract on Serum Lipid and Antioxidant Status in hypercholesterolemic Rabbits
TLDR
It can be concluded that bioactive compounds containing in aqueous garlic extracts might be responsible for both lipid- lowering and antioxidative actions to protect the heart and liver from hypercholesterolemia. Expand
Regulation of hepatic hydroxy methyl glutarate - CoA reductase for controlling hypercholesterolemia in rats.
TLDR
Quercetin may consider as a new saving candidate for the future development of hypocholesterolemia agents and histopathological examination of rat liver showed the ameliorative effect of quercet in on hypercholesterolemic effect of triton. Expand
Effect of Pomegranate Juice on Lipid Profile and Antioxidant Enzymes in Hypercholesterolemic
Objective: The present study was carried out to investigate the effects of oral administration of Pomegranate juice at three dosage levels (1, 3 and 5 ml/kg b. wt.) to hypercholesterolemic rats forExpand
Excess weight and dyslipidemia and their complications during pregnancy: a systematic review
TLDR
The impact on care of maternal habits and excess weight during pregnancy is highly significant, owing to the different degrees of complication in obstetric outcomes and their influence on the clinical characteristics of the newborn. Expand
Oxidized LDL and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease
TLDR
The aim of this study was to find the association between ox- LDL,HDL-C , TG, TG, LDL-C and arylesterase, with CHD risk in different age groups in males and females, the difference in these risk factors can explain the sex difference and how much the changes in the risk factors levels in CHD and CHD with DM patients between age groups. Expand
The potential role of statins in preeclampsia and dyslipidemia during gestation: a narrative review
TLDR
Evaluating the available evidence for the teratogenicity of statins, and their utility in treating preeclampsia and dyslipidemia in pregnancy, as good alternatives in these domains are currently lacking concludes that statins are likely not teratogenic. Expand
ANTI HYPERLIPIDEMIC EFFECT OF ETHANOLIC EXTRACT OF PUNICA GRANATUM L. MESOCARP IN HYPERLIPIDEMIC RATS
This study Characterize and identify phytochemical compound of Punica granatum L. mesocarp extract and study their an anti-hyperlipidemic activity. The Thirty Rattus rattus male rats were dividedExpand
Association between maternal blood lipids levels during pregnancy and risk of small-for-gestational-age infants
TLDR
In the highest gestational weight gain strata, especially the third-trimester, the effect of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels on the risk for small-for-gestational-age is larger, and high high- density cholesterol level during third trimester could be considered as indicators of a high-risk of small- for-gestations-age, regardless of gestational Weight gain.

O processo aterosclerótico em artérias de coelhos submetidos a dieta suplementada com gema de ovo: modelo experimental de baixo custo
TLDR
The egg yolk diet developed mild atherosclerosis in rabbits and induced the same characteristics and extent of the lesions obtained by low-dosage purified cholesterol, indicating that egg yolks can be used as an inexpensive source of cholesterol in models of experimental Atherosclerosis. Expand
Maternal Hypercholesterolemia During Pregnancy Promotes Early Atherogenesis in LDL Receptor-Deficient Mice and Alters Aortic Gene Expression Determined by Microarray
TLDR
These findings establish an atherogenic effect of maternal hypercholesterolemia in genetically uniform mice and indicate that changes in aortic gene expression persist long after fetal exposure to hypercholesterol, in addition to elucidating pathogenic mechanisms initiated during fetal development. Expand
Lipoprotein metabolism during normal pregnancy.
TLDR
Serum triglycerides and total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol increased significantly during pregnancy in all women, and the increase in plasma triglycerides may lead to the appearance of the atherogenic dense low- density lipoproteins in a subgroup of women. Expand
Hypercholesterolemia Superimposed by Experimental Hypertension Induces Differential Distribution of Collagen and Elastin
TLDR
It is suggested that collagen types I and III play a role in remodeling of the aortic wall in response to hypertension, and the remarkable involvement of the adventitia in this response indicates that the Adventitia is an important component of the arterial wall. Expand
Analysis of the potential for transfer of lipoprotein-cholesterol across the human placenta.
TLDR
Data are suggestive that cholesterol derived from maternal plasma can be delivered across the placenta to the fetal compartment in normal pregnancies at term, and appears to be of minimal quantitative importance in term newborns of women experiencing uncomplicated pregnancies. Expand
Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor prevents the progression of atherosclerosis via changes in the cellular and extracellular composition of atherosclerotic lesions in watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits.
TLDR
GM-CSF altered the composition of atherosclerotic lesions and reduced the atherosclerosis in WHHL rabbits, suggesting one of the mechanisms for the antiatherogenic effect. Expand
The effects of intrauterine malnutrition on maternal-fetal cholesterol transport and fetal lipid synthesis in mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that LPD throughout gestation in mice does not affect maternal-fetal cholesterol transport, fetal cholesterol or fatty acid synthesis, indicating that programming effects of LPD are not mediated by short-term changes in maternal- Fetal lipid metabolism. Expand
Influence of maternal hypercholesterolaemia during pregnancy on progression of early atherosclerotic lesions in childhood: Fate of Early Lesions in Children (FELIC) study
TLDR
It is suggested that maternal hypercholesterolaemia during pregnancy induces changes in the fetal aorta that determine the long-term susceptibility of children to fatty-streak formation and subsequent atherosclerosis. Expand
Developmental programming of lipid metabolism and aortic vascular function in C57BL/6 mice: a novel study suggesting an involvement of LDL-receptor.
TLDR
A novel observation of hepatic LDL-r-mediated programming of altered lipid metabolism, along with aortic vascular dysfunction, in the female offspring of mothers fed a high-SFA diet is reported. Expand

TLDR
Evidence indicating that maternal hypercholesterolemia during pregnancy is responsible for one cascade of pathogenic events and cholesterol‐lowering agents or antioxidants during pregnancy influence in utero programming and postnatal susceptibility to atherogenesis is focused on. Expand
