We analyzed lipoprotein profiles in 616 Japanese by biphasic agarose gel electrophoresis using Chol/Trig Combo(TM) to yield HDL, VLDL, LDL and CM fractions which were stained with cholesterol and triglyceride reagents, respectively. To further evalute the pattern of electrophoresis, we analyzed the fraction between VLDL and LDL to confirm the possibility of a MidBand by using an automatic-five-fraction function. The cholesterol concentrations in MidBand (MidBand-C) showed a good correlation to…

Analysis of cholesterol levels in lipoprotein(a) with anion-exchange chromatography

The AEX-HPLC method may be effectively applied to the analysis of serum lipoproteins with high levels of Lp(a), a well-known risk factor for atherosclerotic diseases, and significantly correlated with the amounts of L p(a) protein measured by an immunoturbidimetry method available commercially.

Measurement of cholesterol concentrations of major serum lipoprotein classes in haemodialysis patients by anion-exchange chromatography

The results suggest that the HPLC method may be sufficiently applied to the assessment of serum lipoprotein profile in HD patients in place of the other method including an UC.

Significance of measuring serum concentrations of remnant lipoproteins and apolipoprotein B-48 in fasting period.

AIM To characterize lipid profiles conveniently in the fasting period to detect postprandial hyperlipidemic subjects, we measured the concentrations of lipids, including remnant lipoproteins and

Is There a Relation Between Triglyceride Concentrations in Very Low Density Lipoprotein and the Index of Insulin Resistance in Nondiabetic Subjects?

The clinical utility of triglyceride in VLDL (VLDL‐TG) level, determined using a homogeneous assay kit (Shino‐test Corporation, Tokyo, Japan), as an index of insulin resistance is clarified.

The findings suggest that in this case the CD36 deficiency type 1 was the pathogenic mechanism of acute coronary syndrome relative to insulin resistance and modification of the lipid profile.

Spherical Carbon Adsorbent (AST-120) Protects Deterioration of Renal Function in Chronic Kidney Disease Rats through Inhibition of Reactive Oxygen Species Production from Mitochondria and Reduction of Serum Lipid Peroxidation

Improvements in the redox status and lipid peroxidation induced by AST-120 may delay the progression of CKD.

Severe hypertriglyceridemia in a subject with disturbed life style and poor glycemic control without recurrence of acute pancreatitis: a case report

It is suggested that very severe hypertriglyceridemia alone does not necessarily bring out acute pancreatitis, although it is very important to check pancreatitis markers in such a situation.

Case Report: Various Abnormalities in Lipid and Glucose Metabolism Induced by Capecitabine

A subject with sigmoid colon cancer and capecitabine-induced dyslipidemia is presented, whose LDL-cholesterol level was markedly elevated throughout the long period of treatment with cape citabine and her triglyceride level was high and not stable during the treatment period.



Evaluation of an immunoseparation method for quantitative measurement of remnant-like particle-cholesterol in serum and plasma.

It is concluded that the RLP-C assay compares favorably to ultracentrifugation and electrophoresis and provides a convenient and economical approach to measure triglyceride-rich lipoprotein remnants in routine clinical laboratories.

[Evaluation and problems of ultracentrifugal technique for separation and analysis of serum lipoproteins: comparison with other analytical methods].

An ultracentrifugation technique for separating and analyzing serum lipoproteins was evaluated in comparison with analyses by electrophoresis using agarose-gel and polyacrylamide-gel, and 3% of apo A-I was estimated to be lost from the HDL during the centrifuge procedure.

[Remnant-like particles-cholesterol (RLP-C) assay and its clinical application to lipid tests in a postprandial as well as fasting state].

The RLP-C assay can be used for the measurement of remnant lipoproteins in serum prepared from the fasting as well as postprandial states for predicting subjects who may be at risk of coronary artery disease.

Elevated remnant-like lipoprotein particles in impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetic patients.

High serum RLP-C and R LP-TG levels in IGT and diabetic patients may represent an increased risk of atherosclerosis in these patients, and the incidence of remnant hyperlipoproteinemia in normocholesterolemic subjects was up to four times higher in I GT and diabetic groups compared with the normal group.

Improved methods for quantification of organ-specific contributions to postprandial hyperlipidemia indicate substantial increases in the concentration and altered properties of hepatogenous VLDL, in

Chylomicron Remnant Induces Apoptosis in Vascular Endothelial Cells

It is proposed that chylomicron remnant may promote atherosclerosis by inducing apoptosis in vascular endothelial cells in vitro, and this hypothesis is supported by the findings that proatherosclerotic factors, such as oxidized low density lipoprotein (LDL), reactive oxygen species, and inflammatory cytokines, have all been shown to induce apoptosis of vascular endotocytes in vitro.
