Association of Plasma Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein (oxLDL) with increased triglycerides level in Omani subjects

Oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL) is a modification believed to be a key event in the development of atherosclerosis. Oxidized LDL (oxLDL) particles are recognized by macrophage scavenger receptors where macrophages become loaded with cholesterol converting into “foam cells” that accumulate into fatty streaks initiating atherosclerosis events. In vitro studies suggest that small LDL[…]
