Background:Atherosclerosis was correlated with hemodialysis duration (HD) in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients. Dyslipidemias were identified as atherogenic risk factors.Material/Methods: To investigate variations in HDL[sub]2[/sub] and HDL[sub]3[/sub] composition and lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity as functions of HD, 20 CRF patients were selected for maintenance hemodialysis during the 9 years from April 1, 1991 to March 31, 2000. Blood samples were drawn four times: 1991 (T0, study begin), 1994 (T1), 1997 (T2), and 2000 (T3). T0 results were taken as references.Results: Triacylglycerol concentrations were 1.12-fold higher at T1 (P
