Abstract
Electron microscopy of negatively stained plasma shows that intravenous administration of heparin to healthy humans results in a fast degradation of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL), which are very rich in triglycerides (50% w/w). VLDL are also rapidly digested by post-heparin lipolytic activity when serum from non-heparinized subjects is incubated at 27°C “in vitro” with post-heparin serum of healthy controls.
