Lipid profiles in untreated patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
OBJECTIVE: to research lipid profiles in patients with untreated active atrophic arthritis (RA) and to assess the connection of the inflammatory condition of RA with lipid profiles. METHODS: Forty-two patients with RA and 42 age and sex matched healthy controls were studied. Patients with RA had not been treated with corticosteroid or disease modifying antirheumatic drugs before the study. Total cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, apolipoprotein A1 (apo A1), apolipoprotein B (apo B), lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)], and C-reactive protein (CRP) were measured in both groups. RESULTS: the amount of apo A1 and HDL-cholesterol were significantly lower in patients than in controls (128.5 vs. 151.8 mg/dl, 41.2 vs. 54.9 mg/dl, respectively). the extent of Lp(a) was significantly higher in patients than in controls (27.1 vs. 18.0 mg/dl). 
Plasma lipid profiles in adults after prenatal exposure to the Dutch famine
Background: Small body size at birth has been reported to be related to an atherogenic lipid profile in humans, and animal experiments have shown that undernutrition during pregnancy permanently alters cholesterol metabolism within the offspring. there’s no evidence in humans that maternal malnutrition during pregnancy affects the lipid profiles of the offspring.
Objectives: We assessed the consequences of maternal malnutrition during specific periods of gestation on plasma lipid profiles in persons aged ≈50 y.
Design: This was a follow-up study of men and ladies born at term as singletons during a university hospital in Amsterdam between 1 November 1943 and 28 February 1947 round the time of a severe famine. 
Passive Smoking Alters Lipid Profiles in Adolescents
Although cigarette smoking is related to elevation of plasma lipid levels and changes in lipoprotein distribution, it’s not known whether passive smoking is related to an alteration in lipid profiles. The relation between plasma cotinine, a marker of exposure to tobacco smoke, and lipid profiles was studied in healthy adolescents from a suburban ny highschool district who were undergoing preparticipation sports physicals. Forty-four percent of the adolescents reported that one or both parents currently smoked. Eleven percent of the adolescents had plasma cotinine concentrations ≥2.5 ng/mL, the extent considered indicative of exposure. Adolescents with two smoking parents had significantly higher plasma cotinine concentrations after adjustment for other factors than adolescents whose parents didn’t smoke. 
Association between lipid profiles and presence of carotid plaque
It is indicated that lipids profiles are related to carotid plaque and Atherosclerosis. However, studies about the connection between serum lipid profiles and carotid plaque composition in Chinese Population is restricted . We conducted a cross-sectional study among 3,214 participants between January 2015 and December 2017 in China, to research the association between various lipid profiles and therefore the prevalence of carotid plaque. Logistic regression model was wont to investigate the association between plasma lipid profiles and odds of carotid plaque. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was wont to compare the mean plasma lipid profiles among different number and composition of arteria carotis plaques. 
Lipid Profiles in Different ABO Blood Groups in Owerri Metropolis, South East Nigeria- A Preliminary Study
Objective: The study investigated the likelihood of using blood groups as predictive indices for diseases related to lipid metabolism.
Methods: Lipid profiles were examined in 100 apparently healthy male (40) and feminine (60) subjects of various ABO blood groups aged between 18-30 years from Imo State University. Of these, 20 were blood type A, 30 were B blood group , 4 were AB blood group , and 46 were blood type O. Lipid profile parameters were determined consistent with enzymatic assay employing a commercial kit from Randox Laboratories, uk and calculation using Friedewald’s equation. Monoclonal ABO blood grouping reagent by CLAS Technology, uk was wont to determine the blood type.
