High-density lipoprotein (HDL) may decrease organ injury in sepsis. This study was designed using an animal model to mimic people who had a high HDL level and to test HDL effects on preventing organ damage in endotoxemia. Endotoxemia was induced by an infusion of lipopolysac-charide (LPS) after HDL or LDL administration. Levels of blood biochemical substances, nitrate/nitrite, and TNF-α in sera were measured. Pathological examinations were performed 72 hours after LPS infusion. HDL decreased the endotoxin-induced elevation of AST, ALT, BUN, creatinine, LDH, CPK, nitrate/nitrite, and TNF-α. On histological examination, neutrophil infiltration was lower in the HDL group. HDL had a significant effect in preventing endotoxin-induced organ damage.
