The Extractability of Serum Lipids in Normal Subjects, Coronary Disease, Hyperlipemia, and Hypercholesteremia
The lipid extraction of fasting serum samples was studied with various alcohol-ether solutions. The release of cholesterol and esterified fatty acids from the serum lipoproteins was found to be significantly different in the various disease states studied as compared to the normal subject. The fraction of lipid release from fasting serum was not related to the total level of the cholesterol or esterified fatty acids in normal subjects, coronary artery disease, and hypercholesteremia.
