Abstract

Results in 40 controls and in 151 patients (23 with acute viral hepatitis and 128 with chronic liver disease) are reported. The early phase of acute viral hepatitis is characterized by the lowered α and pre-β lipoproteins (agarose electrophoresis), low Apo-A (immunoelectrophoresis), hypertriglyceridemia and the presence of VLDL with the mobility of β (β-VLDL). In some patients a lipoprotein with d> 1,006, different from LP-X, was noted. In chronic liver disease, the triglyceride levels were not modified, and low cholesterol and low Apo-A levels were observed. Absence of α and pre-β lipoproteins, low cholesterol and low Apo-A were found in hepatic coma.
