Jüngst, Dieter; Wallner, J. and Karl, Hans Josef (1980): Correlation of total cholesterol and protein in urine in patients with the nephrotic syndrome. In: Klinische Wochenschrift, Vol. 58, No. 21: pp. 1215-1216 [PDF, 166kB]


The excretion of protein and cholesterol in 24 h urine was measured in 42 patients with the nephrotic syndrome. The finding of a positive correlation (r=0.76,p<0.01) between urinary cholesterol and urinary protein would be compatible with an enhanced glomerular filtration of plasma lipoproteins as the cause of lipiduria in the nephrotic syndrome.
