Correlation of total cholesterol and protein in urine in patients with the nephrotic syndrome.
In: Klinische Wochenschrift, Vol. 58, Nr. 21: S. 1215-1216
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.
