Serum cholesterol and vitamins A and E in juvenile chronic arthritis

Serum cholesterol and vitamins A and E in juvenile chronic arthritis

Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology 8(2): 187-191

Concentrations of serum total cholesterol and the antioxidant vitamins A and E were measured in 125 children with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA). Total serum cholesterol was significantly lower in patients than in healthy children in most age groups and correlated with the markers of disease activity, haemoglobin and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate. In age- and sex-adjusted stepwise multiple linear regression, serum zinc had a significant predictive value for cholesterol.
