  The average daily consumption of seal oil by the Inuit people is approximately 8-9 g, yet there is very little information on the effect of seal oil consumption on cardiovascular disease risk factors. In this study, 19 healthy, normocholesterolemic subjects consumed 20 g of encapsulated seal oil...

  The possible antiatherogenic action of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) was pharmacologically investigated using purified and ethylesterified fish oilcontaining 75% EPA (EPA-E) in multiple oral doses in rats and rabbits. EPA-E showed dose-dependent prevention of thrombus formation in a vascular shunt...

  Eighteen patients with familial hypercholesterolemia treated with lovastatin (40 mg/day) for three months were studied to find out whether the drug induces modifications in the lipid composition of the erythrocyte membrane and whether these induce changes in the rheological behaviour of the red...

  The newly developed antihypertensive drugs, the long-acting beta-blocker propranolol and the sustained release calcium antagonist verapamil, arecompared in their antihypertensive, platelet function, rheological properties and metabolic effects. The trial was a double-blind, randomised, placebo-...

  The nutritional effects of fish oil, which is rich in the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, have been reported. In this randomized, placebo-controlled,double-blind, crossover study, we evaluated the effects of dietary fish oil capsules on the hematological parameters of healthy middle-aged...

  Twelve type I (insulin-dependent) diabetic subjects in stable metabolic control for at least 3 mo received a controlled diet containing 50%carbohydrate, 35% fat, and 15% protein. Calorie intake varied from 1800 to 2200 calories, depending on individual needs. Part of the polyunsaturatedomega-6...

    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...

  Diabetic dyslipoproteinemia characterized by hypertriglyceridemia, low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and often elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol with predominance of small, dense LDL is a strong risk factor for atherosclerosis. It is unclear whether fibrate or...

  Reports suggest that the low incidence of ischaemic heart disease in Greenlandic Eskimos is related to the effect of a diet rich in eicosapentaenoicacid on platelet reactivity and plasma lipid concentrations. A double blind randomised investigation was therefore conducted of the effects on...
