Abstract

Cholesterol levels in the median nerve were studied at various post mortem intervals.single median nerve samples were collected from the wrists of 36 subjects during forensic autopsies of subjects with known circumstances and time of Death.Although the absolue values varied,increments in cholesterolconcentration were recorded.Subsequently,16 subjects who did not suffer of any neurological and metabolic diseases with known times and circumstances of Death were enrolled.For each enrolled subject two samples were collected from the wrist at an interval of approximately two hours.The obtained results revealed a gradual increase in cholesterol levels with increasing time since Death.
