Post-mortem serum cholesterol levels

, : Post-mortem serum cholesterol levels. British Medical Journal 2(5216): 1852-1853

The serum cholesterol was estimated on 26 patients shortly before and at varying times after death. The ante-mortem and post-mortem levels were close. The post-mortem serum cholesterol may be taken as an indication of the level just before death.

Post-mortem T3 levels have been reported to be increased in victims of SIDS. Recent animal studies suggest, however, that elevated T3 in SIDS may be a non-specific post-mortem phenomenon. Therefore, we studied the possible effects of post-mortem t...
