    ..In conclusion, at this time the Golden-Syrian hamster does not appear to be a useful model to determine the mechanism(s) of diet-induced development of atherosclerotic lesions...

    Nutr Res 31:625-30. 2011
    ..The cells appeared to respond similarly to the assessed fatty acids in terms of amount and type of lipid accumulated. Hence, the THP-1 cell line was not appropriate to test the hypotheses of interest...

    Lipid Metabolism Laboratory, Tufts University, Boston, Massachusetts 02111, USA
    J Mol Endocrinol 47:109-117. 2011
    ..In THP-1 cells, this effect is reduced in the presence of oxLDL, indicating that a pro-atherogenic lipoprotein milieu is an important variable in sex hormone modulation of CHD...
