Consumption of a meal containing oxidized and oxidizable lipids gives rise to an increased plasma concentration of lipid hydroperoxides, detectable by a sensitive chemiluminescence procedure. This is associated with increased susceptibility of LDL to oxidation, apparently due a structural perturbation at the particle surface brought about by lipid oxidation products. The postprandial modification of LDL is at least partially accounted for by an increase of LDL, a subfraction containing lipid oxidation products where apoproteinB-100 (apoB-100) is denatured. Consuming the meal with a suitable source of antioxidants, such as those found in red wine, minimizes this postprandial oxidative stress. The inhibition of peroxidation of lipids present in the meal during digestion is a possible mechanism for the observed protection of LDL. The in vivo oxidatively modified LDL has numerous features that correspond to the atherogenic minimally modified LDL produced in vitro. These modified particles could account for a relevant link between nutrition and early biological processes that foster the development of atherosclerosis.
