Identification of a Novel
Cardiovascular Risk Factor through
a Translational Approach
• Director: 李源德 講座教授

Associate Professor, Baylor College of Medicine
The composition of a new cardiovascular
research center at CMU-CMUH:
L5 Medical Research Center
What is L5?
Electronegative LDL mildly oxidized in vivo.
L5 is the most highly electronegative LDL.
L5 can induce apoptosis of vascular endothelial cells.
Endothelial apoptosis contributes to atherosclerosis and
thrombosis.
LDL-C = 190 mg/dl
LDL-C = 119 mg/dl

Goal and significance
of the new cardiovascular research center
• Goal
– to establish an in vivo relevance of L5 in
atherosclerosis.
• Significance
– Impact on public health in Taiwan
– Impact on medical research in Taiwan
Missions of the core laboratory and
all divisions
• Core Laboratory: (陳珠璜Assoc. Prof; 楊朝諭教授) 黃志
揚教授 汪貴珍教授 張博淵助理教授 李安生助理教授
– will be providing L5 for cell and animal studies and
performing all L5 analyses
– fully characterize L5 and strengthen the theoretical
basis for all the studies
• Division I—Cell Study Division (馬明琪教授; 李啟明副教授)
黃志揚教授, 李宗貴教授, 陳珠璜Assoc. Prof
– to provide further evidence of L5’s capability of deranging
the molecular homeostasis.
– strengthen the theoretical basis for the animal and human
studies
– provide insights into new targets for treatment
• 子計畫:
– Effects of L5 on macrophage physiology
– Effects of L5 on endothelium-dependent vascular functions
– Effects of L5 on the expression of adhesion molecules in
endothelial cells
– Effects of L5 on hypertrophy and apoptosis in
cardiomyocytes
• Division II—Animal Study Division: (汪貴珍教授, 郭薇雯副
教授), 李安生助理教授, 陳珠璜Assoc. Prof
– will be performing animal studies to establish the in vivo
relevance of L5 in atherosclerosis.
– to provide sufficient evidence to establish such a causeeffect relation.
• 子計畫:
– Induction of L5 synthesis in hamsters and investigation of
the mechanism
– Effects of L5 on EDR in aortic ring preparations
– Role of L5 in diabetic cardiomyopathy in rat models
• Division III—Clinical Study Division: (張坤正副教授, 張博淵助
理教授), 白培英醫師, 張詩聖醫師, 李源德講座教授, 陳珠璜
Assoc. Prof
– To establish clinical correlation between L5 and
atherosclerosis
– To provide human plasma samples for L5 isolation and
purification at the core laboratory.
• 子計畫:
– L5 as a possible risk factor in CAD events
• To test relationship of L5 with progress of
atherosclerosis
• To identify the specific modified lipids and/or proteins
/peptides in L5
• To link to Pilot Clinical Trials with statin and Red rice
• Division IV—Imaging Study Division: (施庭芳教授, 何永仁主
任), 沈戊忠教授, 李源德講座教授, 張坤正副教授, 陳珠璜
Assoc. Prof
– to provide direct visual evidence of vascular disease in
humans
– to establish a close correlation between L5 concentration
and tissue perfusion in humans by using DCE-MRI
technology
• 子計畫:
– Correlation between plasma L5 levels and pancreatic
perfusion in humans
• Division V—Pilot Trial Study Division: (張永賢副校長, 陳清
助主任), 汪貴珍教授, 郭薇雯副教授, 王宇澄醫師, 陳珠璜
Assoc. Prof
– to identify natural products as alternative regiments for L5
reduction in high risk patients, and
– to examine whether L5 reduction is accompanied by
clinical improvement of endothelial function. The two
products to be tested are Monascus purpureus (紅麴) and
garlic extract (大蒜).
• 子計畫:
– Effect of Monascus purpureus on L5 reduction in patients
with T2DM
– Effect of garlic on L5 reduction in patients with T2DM
