In atherosclerosis in man and experimental atherosclerosis in animals cells of the mononuclear phagocyte system take up lipids and are converted into "foam cells." These cells are found in organs of the reticuloendothelial system and also actually in the atherosclerotic focus in the vessel wall [i, 2, i0].
