Plasma lipids have been extensively studied in sedentary and in subjects practicing exercise training, but not in extreme inactivity as occurs in bedridden patients. This is important for the care of bedridden patients and understanding the overall plasma lipid regulation. Here, we investigated plasma lipids, lipid transfers to HDL and inflammatory markers in bedridden patients. Fasting blood samples were collected from 23 clinically stable bedridden patients under long-term care (>90 days) and 26 normolipidemic sedentary subjects, paired for age and gender...

OBJECTIVE: Plasma high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) level is a strong inverse predictor of cardiovascular disease (CVD) development. Tangier disease, a consequence of mutations in the ATP binding cassette transporter 1 (ABCA1) gene, is associated with very low HDL-C levels. Still, the relationship between Tangier disease and CVD is not always evident. The study investigates usefulness of lipoprotein subfractions, oxidative stress and paraoxonase 1 (PON1) status assessment for evaluation and management of patient with low HDL-C phenotype...

REVIEW
Rajeev Gupta, Ravinder S Rao, Anoop Misra, Samin K Sharma
Dyslipidemia is the most important atherosclerotic risk factor. Review of population based studies in India shows increasing mean total cholesterol levels. Recent studies have reported that high cholesterol is present in 25-30% of urban and 15-20% rural subjects. This prevalence is lower than high-income countries. The most common dyslipidemia in India are borderline high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol and high triglycerides. Studies have reported that over a 20-year period total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels have increased among urban populations...
