The ability of lanthanum chloride (LaCl3) to retard the progression of established atherosclerosis was investigated in cholesterol-fed rabbits. Rabbits were initially maintained on a high-fat plus cholesterol-supplemented diet for 10 weeks to induce lesions and were then changed to a low-fat diet or a low-fat diet supplemented with LaCl3 for an additional 24 weeks to permit their serum cholesterol levels to normalize. LaCl3 did not affect the rate at which serum cholesterol levels returned to… CONTINUE READING
