Effect of L-carnitine on the serum lipoproteins and HDL-C subclasses in hemodialysis patients.
Following carnitine administration a decrease in plasma levels of triglyceride (TG) and increase in total high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) has been reported. Our hypothesis was that it also improves the HDL2/HDL3 ...
Atherogenic changes of low-density lipoprotein susceptibility to oxidation, and antioxidant enzymes in pulmonary tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis remains one of the most common infectious diseases and a leading cause of mortality world wide. There is some evidence for the possible involvement of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in atherosclerosis. We aim to ...
Relationship between vitamin D receptor gene FokI and ApaI polymorphisms and serum levels of fetuin-A, vitamin D, and parathyroid hormone in patients on hemodialysis
Introduction. Low fetuin-A and 1,25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (vitamin D) levels accompanied with high intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) contents are associated with cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients. The aim of present ...
Serum Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor-? B Ligand, Osteoprotegrin, and Intact Parathyroid Hormone in Hemodialysis and Renal Transplant Patients
Serum receptor activator of nuclear factor-? B ligand and osteoprotegrin are mediated to vascular calcification in the general population. Our knowledge is very sparse in hemodialysis and renal transplant patients. Receptor ...
The effect of red grape seed extract on serum paraoxonase activity in patients with mild to moderate hyperlipidemia [O efeito do extrato de semente de uva vermelha na atividade do soro paraoxonase em doentes com hiperlipidemia leve a moderada]
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Red grape seed extract (RGSE) contains oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes as a class of flavonoids. These compounds are potent antioxidants and exert many health-promoting effects. This study aimed ...
