Associations of Dietary Cholesterol or Egg Consumption With Incident Cardiovascular Disease and Mortality.

Cholesterol is a common nutrient in the human diet and eggs are a major source of dietary cholesterol. Whether dietary cholesterol or egg consumption is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) an...

Appropriate Total cholesterol cut-offs for detection of abnormal LDL cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol among low cardiovascular risk population.

Current guidelines suggest screening for dyslipidemia in early adulthood. In Thailand, a screening total cholesterol level is most commonly used potentially due to the costs of the test. However, the ...

Facilitated and Non-Gaussian Diffusion of Cholesterol in Liquid Ordered Phase Bilayers Depends on the Flip-Flop and Spatial Arrangement of Cholesterol.

The diffusion of cholesterol in biological membranes is critical to cellular processes such as the formation of cholesterol-enriched domains. The cholesterol diffusion may be complicated especially wh...

Meta-regression analysis of the effects of dietary cholesterol intake on LDL and HDL cholesterol.

Elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Dietary guidance recommends reducing saturated fatty acid, trans fatty acid, and cholesterol intak...

Quantifying Cellular Cholesterol Efflux.

Measuring cholesterol efflux involves the tracking of cholesterol movement out of cells. Cholesterol efflux is an essential mechanism to maintain cellular cholesterol homeostasis, and this process is ...

Dyslipidemia Study Investigating The Increase In "Good Cholesterol"

An eight week comparison of the investigational drug GW590735, placebo, and the marketed drug fenofibrate intended to increase the levels of "good cholesterol" and decrease levels of "bad ...

Improving Metabolism With HDL Cholesterol

High levels of good cholesterol (HDL) in our blood decreases our chance of having a heart attack. This relates in part to the role good cholesterol plays in reducing build up of fat in t...

Preliminary Study of Safety and Efficacy of Policosanol

Lay Language Summary: High cholesterol levels are common in persons with HIV infection. However, conventional cholesterol-lowering medications may have harmful side effects when given to ...

Prognostic Value of Serum Cholesterol and Triglyceride in Septic and Non Septic Patients

The primary outcome of this study is to evaluate the difference between the level of serum cholesterol and triglyceride in septic and non septic patients in the ICU. . The secondary outco...

From Research to Practice - Lipid Management for Low HDL-Cholesterol

The overall purpose of this project is to improve the clinical outcomes of veterans with ischemic heart disease (IHD) through implementation of evidence-based lipid management, with a part...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cholesterol which is contained in or bound to high-density lipoproteins (HDL), including CHOLESTEROL ESTERS and free cholesterol.

Cholesterol which is contained in or bound to low density lipoproteins (LDL), including CHOLESTEROL ESTERS and free cholesterol.

An autosomal recessively inherited disorder caused by mutation of LECITHIN CHOLESTEROL ACYLTRANSFERASE that facilitates the esterification of lipoprotein cholesterol and subsequent removal from peripheral tissues to the liver. This defect results in low HDL-cholesterol level in blood and accumulation of free cholesterol in tissue leading to a triad of CORNEAL OPACITY, hemolytic anemia (ANEMIA, HEMOLYTIC), and PROTEINURIA.

Fatty acid esters of cholesterol which constitute about two-thirds of the cholesterol in the plasma. The accumulation of cholesterol esters in the arterial intima is a characteristic feature of atherosclerosis.

A steroid hydroxylase that functions in CHOLESTEROL homeostasis in the brain. It converts cholesterol into 24S-hydroxycholesterol, which is transported over the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER more rapidly than unmetabolized cholesterol.
