Association of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol with incident cardiovascular events in women, by low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and apolipoprotein B100 Levels: a cohort study.
From baseline to week 6 of tofacitinib therapy, the average increases for the predominantly female study group (mean age, 52 years) were 185-230 mg/dL for total cholesterol; 109-126 mg/dL for LDL-C; 51-67 mg/dL for high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C); 136-165 mg/dL for apolipoprotein A-1; 87-97 mg/dL for apolipoprotein B; and 100-109 mg/dL for triglycerides.
Marked benefit with sustained-release niacin therapy in patients with 'isolated' very low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and coronary artery disease.
For the study, metabolic syndrome was defined as occurring among people who have at least three of the following health risks: abdominal obesity, poor blood glucose control, high levels blood lipids, low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) or "good" cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
Study leader Dr Zhen-Yu Chen, from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said: "Total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), and the heart-healthy high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) are still important health issues.
They also had higher levels of "good" high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and lower levels of "bad" low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.
The LDL-C is typically calculated with the Friedwald formula, which requires the measurement of total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and triglycerides (TG) (2).
