Prevention of coronary heart disease by raising high-density lipoprotein cholesterol?

Current Opinion in Lipidology

Nov 22, 2000

A von Eckardstein, G Assmann

PMID: 11086337

Abstract

Consistent with several potentially anti-atherogenic activities of high-density lipoproteins in vitro, low plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol are associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease. In addition to genes, lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking, being ...read more

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.

Statin Medications & Heart Disease

Statins or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, are used clinically to lower cholesterol levels and have been associated with decreased risk of heart disease. Discover the latest research on Statin Medications & Heart Disease here.

Lipid & Membrane Metabolism

Lipid metabolism refers to the synthesis and degradation of lipids in cells and is a complex process essential for fat storage and construction of cellular membranes. Discover the latest research on lipid and membrane metabolism here.

Cholesterol Synthesis & Signaling

Cholesterol is essential for a variety of cellular processes, including cell growth and division, and it plays an important role in various signaling pathways. Here is the latest research on cholesterol synthesis and the role of cholesterol in cell signaling.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.
