A kinetic study on lipoprotein cholesteryl ester metabolism was carried out in 4 normolipidemic volunteers before and after treatment with simvastatin. They received LDL labelled with 3H-cholesteryl linoleate. A lipoprotein cholesteryl ester model was developed that fit the radioactivity in LDL, HDL and VLDL cholesteryl ester during 24 hours following injection. Before treatment, the model is consistent with previously reported data. Moreover our results suggest that, in normal fasting subjects, the efflux of plasma cholesteryl ester is almost exclusively derived from LDL. Administration of drug decreased LDL cholesteryl ester concentration by 35%. After treatment, the rate constant concerning LDL catabolism was increased by 25% and the model required the existence of a direct removal of VLDL cholesteryl ester (40% of total VLDL turnover). Our results suggest that the reduction in the LDL cholesteryl ester concentration induced by treatment with simvastatin is due to an increase in the uptake of LDL and LDL precursors (VLDL, VLDL remnants) by LDL receptors.
