Association of plasma lipid levels with atherosclerosis prevalence in psittaciformes.

The prevalence of atherosclerosis is high in the captive psittacine population and increases with age and female sex. The genera Psittacus, Amazona, a...

Prevalence of plasma lipid abnormalities and its association with glucose metabolism in Spain: the [email protected] study.
Dyslipidemia is a significant contributor to the elevated CVD risk observed in type 2 diabetes mellitus. We assessed the prevalence of dyslipidemia and its association with glucose metabolism status in a representative sample of the adult population

Plasma lipid levels and colorectal adenoma risk.
Abnormalities in lipid levels have been associated with colorectal neoplasm risk; however, few studies have adjusted for use of cholesterol-lowering medications. The objective of this study was to determine the association of plasma lipid levels with

Association of plasma manganese levels with chronic renal failure.
Manganese (Mn) is an essential trace element involved in the formation of bone and in amino acid, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. Mn excess may be neurotoxic to humans, affecting specific areas of the central nervous system. However, relatively li

CELSR2-PSRC1-SORT1 gene expression and association with coronary artery disease and plasma lipid levels in an Asian Indian cohort.
Genetic regulation of plasma lipids has been shown to influence the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). We analyzed the relationship between rs599839 and rs646776 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) present in the CELSR2-PSRC1-SORT1 gene cluste

Impact of abdominal and epicardial fat on the association between plasma adipocytokine levels and coronary atherosclerosis in non-obese patients.
Ectopic fat accumulation is associated with coronary artery disease. Visceral adipose tissue has paracrine and systemic effects and is a source of adipocytokines. It has been implicated in the pathogenesis of coronary atherosclerosis; however, nothin

Plasma Glycated Albumin Levels Clearly Detect Hearing Loss and Atherosclerosis in Patients with Impaired Fasting Glucose.
To describe the relationship between atherosclerosis and hearing thresholds in prediabetic patients with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and to determine the efficacy of glycated albumin in predicting carotid artery atherosclerosis in patients with is

Lipoprotein Plasma Levels in Acute Heart Failure Patients.
We hypothesised that the established association of endothelial lipase (EL) plasma levels with atherogenic lipid profile is altered in acute heart failure (AHF) and additionally affected by overlapping metabolic syndrome (MetS). We examined the assoc

Do genes modify the association of selenium and lipid levels?
The interaction of selenium, a component of antioxidant selenoproteins, with genetic variation in lipid-related pathways has not been evaluated earlier as a potential determinant of blood lipid levels. We aimed at evaluating the effects of gene-envir
