Lipids in cadaver sera after fatal heart attacks

Journal of Clinical Pathology
J B ENTICKNAP

Abstract

Blood lipids have been measured in sera from 750 cadavers. All nine fractions measured show a remarkably consistent pattern of differences between the various gross morbid anatomical forms of ischaemic heart disease. The highest mean values are found when an obvious coronary thrombus is present and those in simple atheromatous occlusion are nearly as high. When there is recognizable necrosis the values are considerably more normal. The serum lipids show relatively little change due to autolysis, about one half of 1% per hour or less. Lipoprotein levels assayed with Cl.welchii alpha toxin correlate well with disease states.

ApoE, Lipids & Cholesterol

Serum cholesterol, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (APOB)-containing lipoproteins (very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), immediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein A (LPA)) and the total cholesterol/high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ratio are all connected in diseases. Here is the latest research.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
