Value of the analysis of lipoproteins after myocardial infarction

Lipid and apoprotein constituents of plasma lipoproteins were determined in survivors of myocardial infarction in relation to a control population. Compared to controls, the patients had significantly higher concentrations of total triglycerides, VLDL + LDL - cholesterol and apo-B, but lower concentrations of HLD-cholesterol, HDL2-cholesterol, HDL3-cholesterol, apo A-I and A-II. Survivors with normal lipaemia also had perturbations in HDL and subfractions (HDL2 and HDL3). In addition, the patients exhibited a significant decrease in HDL-cholesterol to VLDL + LDL-cholesterol ratio and in apo A-I to apo-B ratio. These results demonstrate the importance of determining all lipoproteins in future biological studies to evaluate more precisely the relationship between these compounds and atherosclerosis.

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.
