) Finding a unique pattern in the triglyceride composition of patients with hypertriglyceridemia that increases the chances of getting pancreatitis and which can serve as a laboratory predictive tool for patients and define them as a at-risk population.
2) Finding the typical fatty acid composition in triglycerides for patients at high risk of pancreatic acute inflammation that can be used to develop unique drugs for pancreatic acute inflammation caused by high levels of triglycerides.
The study will be conducted at the Sheba Medical Center Lipid Institute, number of participants: 10 healthy participants, 10 participants with hypertriglyceridemia without prior pancreatitis and 10 participants with hypertriglyceridemia and at least one case of severe pancreatitis in the last 5 years.
A total of 30 participants Participants who are found suitable during their visit to the Lipid Institute Clinic or during their hospitalization at Sheba Medical Center will receive an explanation of the study, will be asked to sign a consent form. And check the fatty acid levels. Healthy volunteers who meet the inclusion conditions will also be asked to sign a consent form and their blood will be taken and kept frozen for further study

Fasting and postprandial hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) depends on increased production of intestinal triglyceride rich lipoproteins in patients with isolated fasting hypertriglyceridemia. ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if implitapide is effective in lowering triglyceride (TG) levels in patients with Fredrickson Type I or V hypertriglyceridemia where the maximum ...
To study the effect of genes on lipid-lowering drug treatment in hypertriglyceridemia.
The purpose of the study is to compare the efficacy and tolerability of fenofibrate 160 mg and niacin 1500 mg in patients with hypertriglyceridemia and low HDL-cholesterol. The primary end...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of replacing some refined starches and added sugars with a combination of egg protein and unsaturated fatty acids on markers of cardiometa...
Severe hypertriglyceridemia (serum triglyceride >10 mmol/L) is implicated in ~9% of acute pancreatitis cases. Certain guidelines list severe hypertriglyceridemia as an indication for plasmapheresis.
Several different methods for measuring glomerular filtration rates (GFRs) have been developed in search of a more accurate and simplified technique. Currently, the main methods used are the slope-int...
Severe hypertriglyceridemia is an endocrine emergency and is associated with acute pancreatitis and hyperviscosity syndrome. We describe an infant with lipoprotein lipase deficiency with severe hypert...
The effect of hyperlipidemia on the cardiovascular system is uncertain in female. The aim of the present study was to determine whether administration of a lipogenic diet alters cardiovascular paramet...
Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) can play a key role in diabetes management. The CONTOUR®NEXT ONE (Ascensia Diabetes Care, Parsippany, NJ, USA) blood glucose monitoring system (BGMS) has been ...
A condition of elevated levels of TRIGLYCERIDES in the blood.
The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.
The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.
The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
Hyperlipidemia - high cholesterol (hypercholesterolaemia)
Hyperlipidemia involves abnormally elevated levels of any or all lipids and/or lipoproteins in the blood. Lipids are transported in a protein capsule, the size of that capsule, or lipoprotein, determines its density. The lipoprotein density and type...
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
