Electron microscopic autoradiographic study of cholesterol passage across arterial and capillary endothelium

The objective of this study was to compare for the first time, by means of electron microscopic autoradiography, the movements of orally administered labelled cholesterol across (a) normal arterial and capillary endothelium, and (b) normal and pathological arterial endothelium. For this purpose, 15 mCi/kg 3H-Cholesterol, spread in 5 daily doses, was given… CONTINUE READING
