The Federal state budget scientifc institution “The research institute of general pathology and pathophysiology” of the Russian academy of sciences,Moscow, Russia. According to phylogenetic theory of general pathology, when living in ocean all were carnivorous piscivorous fatty acids transferring to cells in form of non-polar triglycerides nitially began apoB chylomicrons, continued lipoproteins of very low and low density and fnalized famlliar apoB endocytosis.

On land, in herbivorous who are not yet synthesized insulin, apoB and chylomicrons left process of non-polar triglycerides transferring. A year-old man was admitted to our hospital for proteinuria due to nephrotic syndrome. Renal biopsy revealed focal sclerosis and foam cell infiltration in the glomerulus.

In addition, electron microscopic findings EM revealed peculiar electron-dense deposits EDDs in both sides of the glomerular basement membrane.

Familial dysbetalipoproteinemia is associated with the accumulation of remnant lipoproteins and premature cardiovascular disease. Identification of dysbetalipoproteinemia is important because family members may be affected.

At microscopy, LPG is characterized by the presence of lipoprotein thrombi in dilated glomerular capillaries due to different ApoE mutations. ApoE gene is located on chromosome 19q Type III hyperlipoproteinemia is a highly atherogenic dyslipoproteinemia characterized by hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia due to markedly increased numbers of cholesterol-enriched chylomicron and very-low-density lipoprotein VLDL remnant lipoprotein particles.

Type III can be distinguished from mixed hyperlipidemia based on a simple diagnostic algorithm, which involves total cholesterol, triglycerides, and apolipoprotein B apoB.

However, apoB is not measured routinely. Familial chylomicronemia syndrome FCS is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in lipoprotein lipase, resulting in accumulation of chylomicrons in plasma and hypertriglyceridemia. Elevated triglycerides cause several complications in patients, the most serious being episodes of acute pancreatitis. This review focuses on expert guidance and opinion from an experienced lipidologist and endocrinologist as well as a current review of the literature, as there are no specific guidelines on FCS.

Deficiency of apolipoprotein E APOE causes familial dysbetalipoproteinemia in humans resulting in a higher risk of atherosclerotic disease.

In mice, APOE deficiency results in a severe atherosclerosis phenotype, but it is unknown to what extent this is unique to mice. In this study, was targeted in Yucatan minipigs. The current study was disbetalipoproteinemiw to explore relationships and influences among factors, especially IR, that might elucidate FD progression pathways.

Bayesian network BN modeling, a probabilistic graphical exploratory data analysis tool that portrays relationships and influences among variables as simple diagrams, was applied to 52 e2e2 subjects. Volanesorsen, an investigational inhibitor of apoC-III synthesis, significantly reduced triglyceride levels in clinical trials disbetalipoproteinekia patients with familial chylomicronemia syndrome FCSa rare genetic disorder characterized by marked chylomicronemia leading to a spectrum of symptoms, including recurrent abdominal pain and episodes of potentially fatal acute pancreatitis AP.

To determine the effect of volanesorsen on burden of disease on patients with FCS Methods: The survey included questions about patients’ disbetalipopproteinemia before and after volanesorsen treatment. A spectrum of disorders, ranging from rare severe cases of homozygous null lipoprotein lipase deficiency LPLD -familial chylomicronemia syndrome FCS to heterozygous missense LPLD or polygenic causes, result in hypertriglyceridemia and pancreatitis. The effects of mutations are exacerbated by environmental factors such as diet, pregnancy, and insulin resistance.

In this disbetalipoproteineima, authors discuss chronic treatment of FCS by ultra-low fat diets allied with the use of fibrates, omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, statins, and insulin-sensitizing therapies depending on the extent of residual lipoprotein lipase LPL activity; novel therapies in development disbetalipoprotwinemia triglyceride TG -rich lipoprotein particle clearance. Lipoprotein glomerulopathy LPG is a rare disbetalipproteinemia disease characterized by histopathological features of lipoprotein thrombi in dilated glomerular capillaries and type III like hyperlipoproteinemia with heterozygous mutation of the apolipoprotein apo E gene.

We herein present the case of a year-old woman with LPG complicated by neurofibromatosis type 1 NF1. Unlike the polymorphism, few studies explore effects of apolipoprotein E apoE blood levels on FD development. There are a number of retrospective studies and case reports that have suggested a role for apheresis and insulin infusion in the acute inpatient setting.


We report a case of HTGP in a male with hyperlipoproteinemia type III who was treated successfully with insulin and apheresis on the initial inpatient presentation followed by bi-monthly outpatient maintenance apheresis sessions for the prevention of recurrent HTGP. Familial hypercholesterolemia FH is an inherited disorder of the LDL metabolism, leading to cardiovascular disease, even at young age.

This risk can be significantly lowered by early diagnosis and treatment. Aboutpatients affected in Germany are not diagnosed correctly and only a small number is treated properly. According to current European guidelines, lipid lowering therapy for progressive cardiovascular disease including cardiovascular events has to be focused on a target level for LDL-C. In contrast for Lp a a threshold has to be defined with respect to the method of measurement.

However, due to new lipid lowering drug developments like PCSK9-inhibitors PCSKI a therapeutic algorithm for patients with severe hypercholesterolemia or isolated Lipoprotein a -hyperlipoproteinemia with progressive cardiovascular disease may be necessary to manage the use of PCSK9-I, lipoprotein apheresis LA or both.

Lipoprotein LP -apheresis cisbetalipoproteinemia the treatment of choice in patients suffering from severe familial hypercholesterolemia.

A wide range of mechanisms has been claimed to be responsible for the famjliar clinical benefit. Patients suffering from heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia undergoing LP-apheresis either with direct adsorption of lipoproteins DALI or dextran sulfate DS were examined. Bilirubin is a potent antioxidant that has been inversely related to cardiovascular disease.

There is little information on serum total bilirubin TB in relation to atherosclerosis in familial dyslipidemia.

We assessed the association between TB and carotid and femoral atherosclerosis in this high-risk group. The objective of the study was to evaluate long-term efficacy, safety, and tolerability of evolocumab during open-label extension trials.

Patients completing parent trials were re-randomized 2: Design, Setting, And Patients: Familial dysbetalipoproteinemia FD is a genetic disorder associated with impaired postprandial lipid clearance.

The effect of adding bezafibrate to standard lipid-lowering therapy on postprandial and fasting lipid levels in patients with FD disbetqlipoproteinemia unknown. Heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia FH is a genetic disorder characterized by high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels from birth, which exposes the arteries to high levels of atherogenic lipoproteins lifelong and results in a significantly increased risk of premature cardiovascular events.

The diagnosis of FH, followed by an appropriate and early treatment is critical to reduce the cardiovascular burden in this population. Even though statins represent the mainstay of treatment of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia FHtheir low-density lipoprotein cholesterol LDL-C lowering efficacy is finite and most patients with FH will not achieve LDL-C targets with statin monotherapy.

Addition of ezetimibe with or without bile acid sequestrants will also not lead to treatment goals in many of these patients, particularly in those with established cardiovascular disease.

In this selected subgroup of the FH population, proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 PCSK9 inhibitors provide substantial reductions in LDL-C levels, reduce cardiovascular morbidity and appear to be safe.

Dysbetalipoproteinemia is often associated with apolipoprotein E2E2 homozygosity; however, lipoprotein electrophoresis may also be used to assist in the diagnosis. The aim of this study was to compare apolipoprotein E apo E genotyping and lipoprotein electrophoresis in investigating dysbetalipoproteinemia. Data were collected over a three-year period from a lipid clinic in a tertiary referral centre and reviewed for apo E genotyping and lipoprotein electrophoresis.

Hasdeu Street, Sector 5, Bucharest, Romania. In humans, three structural different apoE isoforms occur, with subsequent functional changes and pathological consequences. Here, we review data supporting the involvement of apoE structural domains and isoforms in normal and altered lipid metabolism, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as stress-related pathological states.

Despite advances in pharmacotherapy of lipid disorders, many dyslipidemic patients do not attain sufficient lipid lowering to mitigate risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Several classes of novel lipid-lowering agents are being evaluated to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk.

Lipoprotein apheresis LA is effective in acutely lowering the plasma concentrations of atherogenic lipoproteins including low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and lipoprotein aand novel lipid-lowering drugs may dampen the lipid rebound effect of LA, with the possibility that LA frequency may be decreased, in some cases even be discontinued.

ApoE3 is the major chylomicron apolipoprotein, binding in a specific liver peripheral cell receptor, allowing transport and normal catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoprotein constituents. Point mutations in ApoE3 have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, type III hyperlipoproteinemia, atherosclerosis, telomere shortening and impaired cognitive function. Clinically most relevant are autosomal dominant familial hypercholesterolemia FH and familial combined hyperlipoproteinemia FCHL.


Type 2 diabetes mellitus T2DM is often associated with mixed dyslipidaemia, where non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol non-HDL-C levels may more closely align with cardiovascular risk than low-density lipoprotein cholesterol LDL-C. For the first time, atherogenic cholesterol-lowering with a PCSK9 inhibitor will be assessed with non-HDL-C as the primary endpoint with usual care as the comparator.

Although familial hypercholesterolemia FH confers a high risk of coronary artery disease, most patients are undiagnosed, and little is known about the efficiency of genetic cascade screening programs at national level. The aim of the study was to estimate the cost-effectiveness of a national genetic cascade screening program in Spain. An economic evaluation was performed using a decision tree analysis. Familial dysbetalipoproteinemia FD is a genetic disorder of lipoprotein metabolism associated with an increased disbetaliopproteinemia for premature cardiovascular disease.

This review article disvetalipoproteinemia a pathophysiological framework for autosomal dominant FD ADFD and discusses diagnostic challenges and therapeutic options.

From the Departments of Vascular Medicine S. Mendelian randomization studies revealed a causal role for remnant cholesterol in cardiovascular disease.

Apolipoprotein E and familial dysbetalipoproteinemia: clinical, biochemical, and genetic aspects.

Remnant particles accumulate in the arterial wall, potentially propagating local and systemic inflammation. We disbetaliporoteinemia the impact of remnant cholesterol on arterial wall inflammation, circulating monocytes, and bone marrow in patients with familial dysbetalipoproteinemia FD.

Homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia is a genetic disorder characterised by substantially raised LDL cholesterol, reduced LDL receptor function, xanthomas, and cardiovascular disease before age 20 years. Conventional therapy is with statins, ezetimibe, and apheresis. The equations used in the general population to calculate cardiovascular risk are not useful in genetic hypercholesterolemia GH. Carotid plaque detection has proved useful in cardiovascular prediction and risk reclassification but there have been no studies of its usefulness in GH.

The aim disbstalipoproteinemia this study was to determine the association between the presence of carotid artery plaque and the occurrence of cardiovascular events in patients with GH. Research Institute of Nephrology, I. Lipoprotein glomerulopathy LPG is a rare disease characterized by specific histological, immunomorphological, and ultrastructural changes.

A patient aged 47 years had nephrotic syndrome with a daily protein loss of Hyperlipoproteinemia HLP and dyslipidemia DLP are of course mainly perceived as diseases of common incidence and are typically seen as the greatest risk factors RF in the context of the pandemic of cardiovascular diseases. However we cannot overlook the fact that disorders mostly congenital of lipid metabolism exist which, though not formally defined as such, amply satisfy the conditions for classification as rare diseases.

To review pathophysiological, epidemiological and clinical aspects of familial dysbetalipoproteinemia; a model disease for remnant metabolism and remnant-associated cardiovascular risk. Gamiliar dysbetalipoproteinemia is characterized by remnant accumulation caused by impaired remnant clearance, and premature cardiovascular disease.

Familial hypercholesterolemia FH is characterized by high low-density lipoprotein LDL cholesterol with co-dominant transmission and high risk of cardiovascular disease CVDalthough with high variability among subjects.

A substantial proportion of individuals clinically diagnosed as familial hypercholesterolemia FH do not carry pathogenic mutations in candidate genes.

Two subjects were found to be heterozygous for mutation p. Fasting hypertriglyceridemia is positively associated with the morbidity of coronary heart disease CHDand postprandial non-fasting hypertriglyceridemia is also correlated with the risk status for CHD, which is related to the increase in chylomicron CM remnant lipoproteins produced from the intestine. CM remnant particles, as well as oxidized low density lipoprotein LDL or very low density lipoprotein VLDL remnants, are highly atherogenic and act by enhancing systemic inflammation, platelet activation, disbetalipoprotenemia, thrombus formation, and macrophage foam cell formation.
