1. Sodium 2-phenylbutyrate, in the form of the pure salt and of compounded pills, was assayed for its hypocholesterolemic properties and for its effect on atherosclerosis in cholesterol-fed rabbits. 2. Serum cholesterol levels were significantly lowered in the animals on the pure salt (P < .01) and the pills (P = .01). The atheromata in the thoracic aorta and aortic arch were somewhat lower but not significantly so. 3. Hemorrhagic kidneys were seen in 6 of 19 rabbits on the pills and 3 of 17 on the salt.

    It is unclear whether glomerular hemodynamic changes always accompany alterations in dietary protein, and whether non hemodynamic factors associated with a high protein intake can influence glomerular injury. In the present study, uninephrectomized (UNx) male rats were fed either standard (20%)...

    This article presents information on atherosclerosis. Ferritin levels in middle-aged men average about 150 ng/ml and in women about 100 ng/ml in the diseases. However, `normal' values for ferritin are usually defined statistically by sampling an apparently healthy and relatively young...

    Measurement of HDL-cholesterol is important in the risk evaluation of cardiovascular disease. Recently, we encountered a 61-year-old man with a negative result for HDL-cholesterol using the Roche assay. Further analysis revealed that this patient had a monoclonal Ig type IgMκ, with an...

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of local Lactobacillus strains (NTU 101 and 102) on cholesterol-lowering effects in vivo. Thirty male hamsters were housed, divided into five groups, and fed on a cholesterol diet (5 g/kg diet) to induce hypercholesterolemia. Milk fermented...

    Background: Early studies have suggested that there may be differences in the concentration of lipoprotein particles and their associated apolipoproteins in arterial and venous blood and that this gradient might explain a proclivity to develop atherosclerotic lesions. The aim of this study was...

    The addition of cholesterol to the daily diet of 100 rabbits revealed individual variations in the capacity of these animals to handle the ingested cholesterol. Although some showed a brisk hypercholesterolemic response to feeding 1 gm of cholesterol per day, others showed no response until 5 gm...

    Abstract  Using rabbit model of experimental hypercholesterolemia we showed that the hypocholesterolemic effect of simvaglisin, a complex preparation containing simvastatin and glycyrrhizic acid, in doses corresponding to 40, 66.5, and 100 mg/kg/day simvastatin is equal to the...
