Low density lipoprotein (LDL) is probably the most atherogenic of all the lipoproteins. Several abnormalities in LDL metabolism seem to be associated with coronary heart disease (CHD) one of them being an elevation of plasma LDL concentration. Recent findings suggest that disorders in the metabolism of LDL could be associated with accelerated atherosclerosis even without elevated LDL levels such as increased flux of LDL and changes in the LDL composition. Elevation of plasma LDL levels can be… CONTINUE READING
