In this first full-length review of the biochemical parameters and their part in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, the reader will discover a range of coverage concerning basic etiological factors and the relationship between the biochemistry of the disease and its clinical manifestations. The book begins with an authoritative overview of lipoprotein structure, metabolism, and quantification, including a critical analysis of the most important techniques utilized in these studies. The focus then moves to the metabolic events attending the interaction of serum lipoprotein with cells and also the functional activities of the arterial wall and how these reactions are regulated.
