Means and SD of Different Variables Variable Mean [+ or -] SD HbA1c 8.2 [+ or -] 1.8 TSH 5.6 [+ or -] 3.25 Total Cholesterol 182.6 [+ or -] 35.5 LDL 102 [+ or -] 31 Triglyceride 178.8 [+ or -] 65.2 HDL 44.9 [+ or -] 12.3 VLDL 36.5 [+ or -] 17.5 Table 3.
In homogenous HDL cholesterol assays, dextran sulphate selectively forms water-soluble complexes with LDL, VLDL and CMs, which resist modified enzymes.
The HDL levels of cats ranged from 22 to 105 mgd[L.sup.-1], LDL levels ranged from 8 to 91mgd[L.sup.-1], and VLDL levels ranged from 4 to 30.6 mgd[L.sup.-1].
Table III shows effect of different feed formulations on TPC, VLDL, LDL, HDL and triglyceride of normal and diet induced hypercholesterolemic rats.
Significant differences (p < 0.05) were found when the children were supplemented with 90mg of DHA (3 gummies), specifically in serum HDL-cholesterol (girls 1.55 [+ or -] 2.70 vs boys 1.23 [+ or -] 3.45 mmol x [l.sup.-1]), serum HDL-cholesterol (girls 1.55 [+ or -] 0.07 vs boys 1.29 [+ or -] 0.09 mmol x [l.sup.-1], p < 0.05), serum VLDL (girls 0.3 6 [+ or -] 0.02 vs boys 0.58 [+ or -] 0.05 mmol x [l.sup.-1], p < 0.05), serum TG (girls 0.80 [+ or -] 0.05 vs boys 1.30 [+ or -] 0.11 mmol x [l.sup.-1], p < 0.05) and AI (girls 0.92 [+ or -] 0.12 vs boys 1.49 [+ or -] 0.16, p < 0.05).
Moreover, hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia are induced by increased secretion of VLDL and decreased clearance of VLDL that justifies the increased plasma level of VLDL in the rats consumed with high fructose diet (Sleder et al., 1980).
Both SBP and DBP were each significantly associated with VLDL [SBP, p = 0.01, OR: 0.74 (CI: 0.6-0.93); DBP, p = 0.023, OR: 1.45 (CI 1.05-2.0)].
Evidence has been collected suggesting that, as reported for the LDL [5], also the oxidation of VLDL triggers a cascade of proatherogenic and proinflammatory cell responses [12].
Emerging findings indicate that niacin decreases plasma VLDL level by inhibiting hepatocyte diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (Kamanna et al., 2013).
In present study, the change in LDL-C cholesterol was not significant in patients and controls, however serum VLDL-C levels rose significantly (P<0.001) in the eclampsia group, which may be due to hyper-triglyceridemia leading to enhanced entry of VLDL that carries endogenous triglycerides into circulation.
Misclassification has been attributed to the TG/5 ratio used in the Friedewald equation, which represents an estimation of VLDL-C based on the average ratio of TG:cholesterol present in VLDL lipoproteins.
In a clinical trial published in the Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Research, Sabinsa's Curcumin C3 Complex showed promising results in reducing the serum levels of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and VLDL cholesterol in subjects with coronary artery disease (CAD).
Las lipoproteinas son estructuras con nucleo liposoluble rodeado por una capa hidrosoluble formada por proteina (llamadas apoproteinas), colesterol libre y fosfolipidos, las cuales se clasifican segun su densidad en: quilomicrones, lipoproteinas de muy baja densidad (VLDL), lipoproteinas de baja densidad (LDL) y lipoproteinas de alta densidad (HDL) (Bauchart 1993; Relling y Mattioli 2003).
Lipoproteins transport lipids in the circulation in four major pathways: (i) a postprandial (exogenous) pathway for chylomicrons; (it) an endogenous pathway involving very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) for triglyceride (TG) transport from the liver; (iii) a low-density lipoprotein (LDL) pathway from a proportion of VLDL as a source of cholesterol for cells; and (iv) a reverse cholesterol transport pathway by high-density lipoprotein (HDL).
The aim of present study is the effects of exposure to both acute and chronic ethanol on chick plasma lipid levels, including the level of HDL--cholesterol, LDL--cholesterol, VLDL cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides in new haching chick.
