  The effect of simvastatin in 27 patients with severe primary hypercholesterolaemia was assessed by a double-blind placebo controlled parallel grouptrial. Total serum cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol and apoprotein B (ApoB) were significantly reduced by simvastatin 40 mg daily. Reductions...

  An encapsulated preparation of fish oil (Maxepa) was administered to hyperlipidaemic patients in order to establish the responsiveness of thecommon lipid phenotypes to dietary supplementation with n-3 fatty acids. 13 patients took 6 g/day of fish oil and 12 patients took 16 g/day in arandomized,...

    Thirteen heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemic patients were treated with lovastatin for 1 year, and were investigated for the effect on lipid profile, blood rheology and fibrinogen levels. A significant dose-dependent reduction in serum levels of total and LDL-cholesterol, Apo B and the...

  BACKGROUND: Abnormalities in blood rheology may be factors contributing to cardiovascular complications and the progression of renal failure inkidney allograft recipients. The haemorheological variables haematocrit, fibrinogen, whole blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, erythrocyte...

  BACKGROUND AND AIM: Hypertriglyceridemia is a risk factor for atherosclerosis that is typically associated with high concentrations of adhesionmolecules, impaired hemorrheology and an unfavourable low-density lipoprotein (LDL) subtype distribution. We hypothesised that some of these riskmarkers...

  To evaluate the effects of short-term cholesterol-lowering treatment on myocardial effort ischemia, 22 patients with stable effort ischemia and mild tomoderate hypercholesterolemia (low density lipoprotein [LDL] cholesterol 160 to 220 mg/dl) were randomly allocated at baseline (TO) in 2 groups....

  OBJECTIVE: The association between testosterone replacement therapy and cardiovascular risk remains controversial. Blood viscosity is a known individual risk factor for cardiovascular disease mortality. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of the long-acting...

  The effect of dietary fish oil (Omega-3 fatty acids--eicosapentenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA] on several mechanisms involved in immune, inflammatory and atherosclerotic vascular disease was determined in 12 subjects with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and nephritis. These out...

  The accrued evidence that lipid-lowering therapy limits the progression of atherosclerosis and reduces CAD events is overwhelming. The focus has been on LDL-C reduction with statins, but recent evidence also stresses the importance of raising HDL-C and reducing triglyceride-rich lipoproteins(TRL...
