Those Researchers at the University of Chicago have found an unsuspected link between the immune system and high plasma lipid in mice Link found between immune system and high plasma lipid levels. – In April 2007 issue of Science, the research team – led by James C. PhD student in the laboratory of Yang – Xin Fu, professor of pathology at the University of Chicago – suggest that an engineered protein could keep mice, and possibly humans from developing high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, a major risk factor for coronary heart disease. ‘Besides showing a relationship between the immune system and elevated lipids, this study opens up a new avenue for research into the close and complex relationship between elevated blood lipid levels and chronic inflammation as manifest in coronary heart disease, said Fu, senior author on the paper.
Offering a range of technical and non-engineered mice, the researchers examined specifically on the role of T-cells . They noted that the change in the expression level of LIGHT and lymphotoxin (LT on to T – levels of cholesterol and cholesterol and triglyceride levels.Correspondence to: Ms Branka Filipovic, the Department of Clinical and Hospital Center Gastroenterohepatology Bezanijska Kosa, Autoput bb 11080 Belgrade, of Serbia.
