Abstract

In a series of 438 subjects (184 normolipidemics and 254 hyperlipidemics) the relationship among serum concentration of triglycerides, lipoprotein lipids and apoproteins A-I and B has been evaluated. The results show that as serum triglyceride level increases, VLDL rise and become enriched in triglycerides. The increase of VLDL is associated with a reduction of serum levels of LDL and HDL which appear to be rich in triglycerides and poor in cholesterol. The decrease in serum HDL level is mainly due to a reduction in serum concentration of the HDL, subtraction. The triglyceride content of HDL, and HDL, rises with increasing serum triglycerides. The increase in serum triglyceride concentration seems then to be associated with a complex metabolic derangement which involves all the lipoprotein fractions.
