Lipoprotein profiling in early multiple sclerosis patients: effect of chronic inflammation?

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Inflammatory cytokines contribute to proatherogenic changes in lipid metabolism by reduction of HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, impairment of its antiinflammatory and antioxidant functions. Therefore, the protective actions of HDL-C can be limited in chronic inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). The aim of this study was to assess the association between lipoprotein subfractions and inflammatory status in early stages of multiple sclerosis. METHODS:Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis Lipoprint© System was used for lipoprotein profile analysis in 19 newly diagnosed MS patients, and in matched 19 healthy controls. Serum levels of interleukin (IL) 1?, IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-7, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12 (p70), IL-13, IL-17, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, interferon-? and TNF-? were measured by multiplex bead assay. RESULTS:Concentrations of the measured cytokines and lipoprotein subclasses were comparable between MS patients and controls. Male, but not female MS patients had significantly higher total HDL-C and small HDL-C subfraction than healthy controls. Large HDL-C negatively correlated with all measured cytokines except IL-17 in MS but not in controls. Intermediate HDL-C subfractions correlated positively with all measured cytokines except G-CSF in MS females but not in MS males or controls. CONCLUSION:Our results of higher HDL-C and mainly its small HDL-C subfraction suggest that male MS patients are at higher risk of atherosclerosis and the subtle dyslipidemia is present in early stages of the disease. The correlations between specific HDL-C subfractions and the inflammatory cytokines demonstrate mutual links between systemic inflammation and lipid metabolism in MS.
