Abstract

Abstract Changes in the levels of cholesterol, phospholipid and triglyceride have been measured in the serum of 20 patients who had sustained a burn injury. In the group of patients with severe burns, serum triglyceride rose, reaching a peak on days 4–6 post burn, whilst cholesterol and phospholipid fell drastically. We suggest that the changes observed are a reflection of a block in the conversion of very low density lipoprotein to low density lipoprotein.
