This is confirmed by the reduction in the atherogenic
and thrombogenic indexes.
As depicted in the above table the mean values of TC/ HDL are increasing with severity of COPD, which indicates the atherogenic
The initiation of atherosclerotic lesion depends on the atherogenic
modification of circulating LDL and on local change in the endothelial permeability (Vanhoutte 2009).
In our study atherogenic
lipid parameters like TC and LDL-C were significantly raised in patients of MDD as compared to healthy controls (p value <0.
Rats receiving the HCD showed significant increase in the atherogenic
index, defined as the ratio of non-HDL to HDL.
11] In addition, atherogenic
indices such as, Castelli's Risk Index (CRI)-I = TC/HDL-c, CRI-II = LDL-c/ HDL-c, atherogenic
coefficient (AC) = (TC--HDL-c)/HDL-c, TGs/HDL-c ratio, and atherogenic
index of plasma (AIP) = log (TGs/HDL-c) were calculated from the individuals.
8) Fibrates may attenuate the beneficial effects of statins on LDL-C, particularly in patients with atherogenic
Key words: Medicinal plants Terminalia chebula HDL LDL Hypercholesteremia Atherogenic
In addition, there are no definitive reports on the variation of emerging cardiovascular indices, such as TG/HDL and atherogenic
index (AI) among urban and rural diabetic patients versus respective non-diabetic controls from north India.
Group 3--experimental (rats received liposomal suspension at the dose of 20 mg/kg of body weight vitamin E in a concentration of 1% by weight of the lipids in liposomes; group 3 animals were administrated the above-noted substance daily for 14 days preemptively before an exposure to the atherogenic
Researchers also observed that the avocado diet significantly lowered small, dense LDL cholesterol (a more atherogenic
subclass of LDL) and oxidized LDL (atherogenic
modified LDL particle).
In the circulation, triglycerides are preferentially incorporated into remnant lipoproteins, which represent a hydrolyzed form of atherogenic
LDL levels show just an incomplete sign of atherogenic
The emphasis on decreasing fat consumption has diverted attention from the enormous risk factor of atherogenic
dyslipidemia, a factor in obesity, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, he says.
Positive effects were also recorded for the atherogenic
index - the total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol, and the oxidative damage of lipids decreased in a linear manner with olive oil polyphenolic content.
