  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...

  This study was designed to examine changes of hemorheological parameters in patients with CHD and hypercholesterolaemia (wide range of plasmatotal cholesterol level from 5.6 to 9.8 mmol.l-1) subjected to lipid lowering therapy with statins (simvastatin, 10.0-20.0 mg/day, dosage was dependenton an...

  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...

  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....

  AIMS: Reports of rheological changes following intensification of metabolic control are limited and not concordant. The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that intensification of management of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with diet, exercise and insulin improves haemorheological...

  OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of n-3 PUFAs supplementation on plasma indices of coagulation (fibrinogen), fibrin D-Dimer (an index ofthrombogenesis and fibrin turnover), endothelial damage/dysfunction (von Willebrand factor (vWf)), platelet activation (soluble P-selectin (sP-sel))...
