The aim of the study was the investigation of components of lipid-transport and hemostatic systems during treatment of hyperlipidemia. 48 patients with hyperlipidemia IIa after 2 months of vigorously controlled diet started treatment with Colestid (4 gm BID) for at least 2 months. Venous blood samples for measurements of lipids, fibrinogen, factors II and VII, protein С and inhibitor of tissue plasminogen activator (PAI-1) were taken before and after diet period, after 8 and 16 weeks of treatment. Main changes of lipids were observed after the first two month of treatment: total cholesterol decreased from 7.63±0.09 to 6.46±0.11 mmol/1, LDL-cholesterol decreased from 5.58±0.09 to 4.4±0.11 mmol/1, HDL-cholesterol and triglycerides did not change significantly. We observed significant decrease of Fg after period of diet level of Fg after treatment did not change. Among 3 studed vitamin K-dependent proteins only FII decreased after treatment. This decrease may reflect the correlation between TC and factor II. Decrease of PAI-1 antigen without change of activity may reflect the decrease of degree of platelet activation after correction of hyperlipidemia.

KEY WORDS: colestid, hyperlipidemia, hemostasis system.
