Hypoascorbemia induces atherosclerosis and vascular deposition of lipoprotein(a)

Lipoprotein(a), a variant of LDL carrying the adhesive glycoprotein apo(a), is a leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) is found in humans and subhuman primates but rarely in lower mammals. Better understanding of the evolutionary advantage of this molecule should elucidate its physiological role. We developed a new mouse model with two characteristics […]

Statin-Associated Cardiomyopathy Responds to Statin Withdrawal and Administration of Coenzyme Q10

Heart failure (HF) is rapidly increasing in incidence and is often present in patients receiving long-term statin therapy.The objective was to test whether or not patients with HF on long-term statin therapy respond to discontinuation of statin therapy and initiation of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplementation.We prospectively identified patients receiving long-term statin therapy in whom HF developed […]

High cholesterol may protect against infections and atherosclerosis

According to the modified ‘response to injury’ hypothesis of atherogenesis, there are at least two pathways leading to the inflammatory and proliferative lesions of the arterial intima. The first involves monocyte and platelet interaction induced by hypercholesterolaemia. The second pathway involves direct stimulation of the endothelium by a number of factors, including smoking, the metabolic consequences […]

Substantial and Sustained Improvements in Blood Pressure, Weight and Lipid Profiles from a Carbohydrate Restricted Diet: An Observational Study of Insulin Resistant Patients in Primary Care

Hypertension is the second biggest known global risk factor for disease after poor diet; perhaps lifestyle interventions are underutilized? In a previous small pilot study, it was found that a low carbohydrate diet was associated with significant improvements in blood pressure, weight, ‘deprescribing’ of medications and lipid profiles. We were interested to investigate if these […]
