Oxidized LDL and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease


  • Luma Abdalmunim Baker




Oxidized LDL cholesterol (ox-LDL) is considered to be a key factor of initiating and accelerating coronary heart disease CHD and diabetes Mellitus DM , is associated with several mechanisms one of them Oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to find the association between ox- LDL ,HDL-C , TG , LDL-C and arylesterase , with CHD risk in different age groups in males and females , the difference in these risk factors can explain the sex difference and how much the changes in the risk factors levels in CHD and CHD with DM patients between age groups.

Methods: determination biochemical parameters of serum blood of ox-LDL , TG , TC , HDL-c , LDL-c , S. Glucose and arylesterase activity were measured in cases male and females were carried CHD and CHD with DM .The cases divided in different the age  groups (40-49) , (50-59) and (60-69) years and compered the result with control groups .

Results: mean Value of ox-LDL and oxidation ratio of LDL show significantly higher at (p<0.05) in CHD and (p<0.001) in CHD with DM patient for females  in the age group (40-49) years but in the males show the results significant decrease  and different significant in others groups ,beside to effect Sex and age some the studied biochemistry parameters levels and signification decrease in HDL-C and arylesterase levels as antioxidant enzymes in females and male patient selected compared with control groups.
