Abstract

In order to evaluate the relationship between triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (chylomicrons and VLDL) and HDL during alimentary lipaemia, 12 healthy volunteers, 6 male and 6 female (aged 20--40 yrs), were studied. Cholesterol, phospholipid, triglyceride and protein were evaluated in whole serum, VLDL, LDL and HDL (successively subfractionated in HDL2 and HDL3). Blood samples were collected in a fasting state, 4.5 and 9 h after a 1500 calorie meal (20% protein, 40% carbohydrate, 40% fat). A striking increase in triglyceride-rich lipoproteins after 4.5 h was observed in both sexes, but was more pronounced in males. An increase in phospholipid and triglyceride as well as a slight reduction in cholesterol was evident in HDL after 4.5 h. At the same time both lipids and proteins were decreased in HDL3 and increased in HDL2. This phenomenon is more evident in females, who showed a significantly higher basal HDL2 level. These results suggest a possible metabolic relationship in the post-prandial phase between triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and HDL, and an inverse correlation between HDL2 and HDL3
