Dietary conjugated linoleic acid reduces plasma lipoproteins and early aortic atherosclerosis in hypercholesterolemic hamsters.
Morphometric analysis of aortas revealed less early atherosclerosis in the conjugated linoleic acid and linoleoic acid-fed hamsters compared to the CONTROL group, suggesting a tocopherol-sparing effect, at least for the conjUGated linolesic acid treatment.
Influence of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) on Establishment and Progression of Atherosclerosis in Rabbits
Dietary CLA is an effective inhibitor of atherogenesis and also causes regression of established atherosclerosis, the first example of substantial regression of Atherosclerosis being caused by diet alone.
Inulin and Oligofructose as Dietary Fiber: A Review of the Evidence
After reviewing their chemistry, origin, and physiological effects, it is the opinion of the authors that inulin and oligofructose are dietary fiber.

Since CLA is derived from the milk of ruminant animals and is found primarily in their meat and in products derived from their milk there is a concerted world-wide effort to increase CLA content of milk by dietary means.
Conjugated linoleic acid isomer effects in atherosclerosis: Growth and regression of lesions
Insofar as individual effects on atherosclerosis were concerned, there was no difference between the CLA mix and the cis9,trans11 and trans10,cis12 isomers, and reduction of atheromata to the observed extent by dietar means alone is noteworthy.

In rabbits, cocoa butter or other fats rich in stearic acid are less atherogenic than other saturated fatty acids, and this finding is true for both cholesterol-containing and cholesterol-free diets.
