  Because it disturbs microcirculation, chylomicronemia can cause severe clinical complications such as acute pancreatitis. Dietary measures are very important in the prevention and treatment of this condition. Dietary supplementation with (n-3) fatty acids has been shown to be of benefit in short-...

  Elevated plasma viscosity is a predictor of atherosclerotic vascular disease and is a potential mechanism by which hypertriglyceridemia increasescardiovascular risk. Previous studies of plasma viscosity reduction in hypertriglyceridemic patients used medications that lowered both triglycerideand...

  INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Haemorrheological parameters and endothelial function are known to be altered in vascular diseases, including stroke. Treatment with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors ('statins') improves cerebrovascular (and cardiovascular) morbidity and mortality in patients with...

  It is known from previous studies that hemorheological parameters are altered in patients with essential hypertension. The hemorheological and hemodynamical effects of doxazosin, a selective alpha-1-adrenoreceptor blocker agent, was examined in twenty patients (mean age: 54+/-10 years) with...

  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...

  Angiotensin II (Ang II) is one of the most potent vasoconstrictors, and the first specific and orally available Ang II-receptor antagonist, losartan (MK-954, DuP-753), has now come into clinical use. The primary site of insulin resistance, as measured by the glucose clamp technique, is skeletal...

  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...

  Hemorheological factors play an important role in the pathogenesis of different cardiovascular diseases. The hemorheological and hemodynamic parameters in essential hypertension and their possible modification by antihypertensive treatment were examined in the following two studies. In the first...

  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,...

  Oral contraceptive (OC) use and increased fructose feeding have been associated with altered cardiometabolic effects. The effect of increased dietaryfructose during OC use on cardiometabolic parameters is unknown. We investigated the effects of a high-fructose diet on body weight gain, fasting...
