Abstract

Dietary trans-fatty acids and serum lipoproteins in humans.

Zock PL, Mensink RP.

Wageningen Agricultural University, The Netherlands.

Trans-fatty acids increase serum LDL-cholesterol and decrease HDL-cholesterol levels in humans when substituted for cis unsaturated fatty acids in the diet. Trans-fatty acids also increase lipoprotein (a) levels relative to other fatty acids. The effects on LDL and HDL may be mediated by the cholesteryl ester transfer protein.
