  • Objectives : The protective effect of Vasopurus, a mixture of three medicinal plants, on atherosclerosis induced by dietary cholesterol in low density lipid (LDL) receptor deficient mice was studied. Methods : Experimental groups were divided into three groups of six animals each; a normal group (N); a high cholesterol group (HC), a high cholesterol plus Vasopurus group (HCVA). The experimental groups were fed for 6 months. Results : Vasopurus supplementation significantly lowered plasma total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol conc entrations compared with the high.cholesterol (HC) diet group. In addition, supplementation with Vasopurus significantly increased fecal cholesterol contents compared to mice fed a HC diet. Mice whose diet was supplemented by Vasopurus showed considerably fewer atherosclerotic plagues in the aortic values of heart and aortas compared to mice receiving the HC diet. Conclusions : These results indicate that Vasopurus has efficacy in anti.atherosclerosis medication.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the quality of sleep with the serum lipid profile in patients who have restless legs syndrome (RLS). Methods: The data were obtained from 116 patients with RLS through questionnaires and blood sampling. Results: The results of this study showed correlations between lower quality of sleep and serum lipid profile (LDL Cholesterol) in patients with RLS (r=.19, p=.040). There were correlations for scores of quality of sleep from the, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) sub-region between lower subjective sleep quality and serum lipid profile (LDL Cholesterol) (r=.20, p=.026), between fewer hours of sleep duration and serum lipid profile (Total Cholesterol) (r=-.21, p=.024), and, between higher daytime dysfunction and serum lipid profile (LDL Cholesterol) (r=.42, p<.001) of patients with RLS. Conclusion: Pati-ents with RLS have sleep disorders with lower quality of sleep and changes in the serum lipid profile for total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. That is, patients with RLS have lower quality of sleep and dyslipidemia compared to persons without RLS. Further research is needed to monitor serum the lipid profile in early stage symptoms of midlife adult patients with RLS and especially older women.

  • In this study, we studied the effect of onion on hyperlipidemia in terms of factors, such as body weight, liver weight, kidney weight, heart weight, blood glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol, and LDL-cholesterol. The hyperlipidemia supplement was significantly effective on the liver weight, kidney weight, blood glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL-cholesterol with the fixed effect model. However, the liver weight, blood glucose, total cholesterol, and triglycerides were significantly decreased with the random effect model on the heterogeneous factors selected by Galbraith plot. The existence of publication bias was checked by using a funnel plot.

  • The purpose of this study was designed to observe the effects of the feeding Prunus persica Batsch var. davidiana Max. extract on the concentrations of the lipids and blood glucose in the S.D. rats fed the experimental diets for 5 weeks. Concentrations of total cholesterol, atherosclerotic index, LDL, LDL-cholesterol, free-cholesterol, cholesteryl ester, triglyceride(TG), phospholipid(PL) and blood glucose in serum were significantly higher in the cholesterol administration groups (groups BCG (cholesterol+water), BCPG (cholesterol+ Prunus persica 5.0 g% extract) than those in the control group (group BG, basal diet+water). But the concentrations of total cholesterol, atherosclerotic index, LDL, LDL-cholesterol, free-cholesterol, cholesteryl ester, TG, PL and blood glucose in serum were remarkably lower in the group BCPG than those in the group BCG. In the ratio of HDL-cholesterol concentration to total cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol concentration, Prunus persica 5.0 g% extract administration group was higher percentage than in the group BCG. The activities of aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase(ALT), lactate dehydrogenase(LDH) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) in serum were rather lower in the Prunus persica 5.0 g% extract administration group(group BCPG) than in the cholesterol diet group(group BCG). From the above research, Prunus persica Batsch var. davidiana Max. were effective on the improvement of the blood glucose, lipid compositions in serum of dietary hyperlipidemic rats. And particularly, Prunus persica Batsch var. davidiana Max. was more effective therapeutic regimen for the control of metabolic derangements in adult disease.

  • The antioxidative effects of solvent fractions of kimchi on LDL oxidatiojn in vitro as well as hypolipidemic effects of these fractions in rabbit fed atherogenic diet were studied. Methanol extract of deffated kimchi was fractionated sequentially with dichloromethane, ethylacetate, butanol and water. All solvent fractions of kimchi inhibited Cu2+-induced LDL oxidation. Among these fractions, the dicholoromethane fraction at the concentration of 25$\mu\textrm{g}$/mL showed the highest antioxidant effects against LDL oxidation in the aspect of inhibiting TBARS production by 28.03% or prolonged lag phase duration 2-fold compared to those of control. Based on the results from in vitro study, New Zealand White Rabbits grouped six each were fed for 8 weeks either basal diet containing 1% cholesterol or experimental diet containing dichloromethane, ethylacetate or water fraciton added to the basal diet. The amount of solvent fraction of kimchi added to the experimental diet was equivalent to 5% of freeze-dried kimchi. The hypolipidemic effects was observed from all experimental gropus, especially from dichloromethane fraction added group. The plasma and LDL cholesterol levels of this group were decreased by 49% and 47%, respectively while that of HDL increased by 91% compared to those of control. The calculated atherogenic index for the dichloromethane group was the lowest among groups. However, TG lowering effect of experimental group was not observed since solbent fraction of kimchi was used instead of freeze-dried kimchi. The TBARS concentration of LDL isolated from rabbit fed dichloromethane fraction was decreased 21% than that of control. These results indicate that active principles responsible for inhibiting LDL oxidation and lowering plasma cholesterol may present abundantly in dichloromethane fraction of kimchi.

  • The effect of petroleum ether soluble fraction (PESF) and panaxydol extracted from red ginseng on serum cholesterol levels was examined in rats and mice fed on a high cholesterol diet. When 2% cholesterol diet containing PESF (800mg/kg diet) or panaxydol (100mg/kg diet) was fed to mice for two weeks, total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol in the serum were significantly decreased in PESF and panaxydol treated group. Panaxydol (5, 10mg/kg b.w./day) was administered for 3 consecutive days by intraperitoneal injection in rats fed on 1% cholesterol diet. Serum total cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL-cholesterol levels of panaxydol administered group (5 mg/kg b.w./day) were decreased by 55%, 33% and 67% compared with those of the control group, respectively. However, a significant increase of serum HDL-cholesterol was observed on panaxydol administered group. Furthermore, hepatic cholestrol levels was significantly decreased in panaxydol administered group. These results suggest that panaxydol could protect hypercholesterolemia.

  • This study was performed to determine the risk factors associated with increased body mass index (BMI) in 672 heavy industry men workers. Subjects were examined in March, 2010 to September, 2010 in Gyeongnam province. Height, weight, systolic blood pressure, and diastolic blood pressure were measured. And fasting blood glucose, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, and triglyceride levels were measured by Olympus AU 680, and their BMIs calculated. Age, smoking statue, and alcohol drinking of the workers were surveyed by questionnairs. The mean total cholesterol levels were $190.06{\pm}36.62mg/dL$, HDL-cholesterol $53.65{\pm}11.92mg/dL$, LDL-cholesterol $104.28{\pm}30.31mg/dL$, triglyceride $151.11{\pm}99.53mg/dL$, and fasting blood glucose $96.92{\pm}19.53mg/dL$. Mean systolic blood pressure was $126.08{\pm}13.78mmHg$, and diastolic blood pressure $71.88{\pm}10.45mmHg$. Subjects were categorized into two BMI groups, BMI ${\geq}23$ and BMI ${\leq}22.9$. The subjects with BMI of 23 or above had significantly higher levels of LDL-cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, and triglyceride, with lower levels of HDL-cholesterol. BMI showed the highest level at the age of thirties, increasing with age. BMI of smokers was higher than BMI of non-smokers, not showing a link between alcoholics and non alcoholics. In conclusion, age, systolic blood pressure, and HDL-cholesterol are mostly relevant to the increase of BMI in this study.
